Well, tomorrow, it's officially Spring, and you know what that means. Yes, it's time for Easter, and a whole host of new gaming events to mark it. We're starting with not just any game, but one of the most popular MMOs of all time. RuneScape - the hit MMORPG available on PC and mobile - is set to introduce eggcellent new Easter-themed quests and more in their latest update, Blooming Burrows.

Blooming Burrows will see adventurers in Gielinor journeying across the land to test out the perfect chocolate egg recipe on behalf of the Easter Bunny themselves. The update will also introduce a new hub area, appropriately named Blooming Burrows, where you can perform a variety of activities like smithing foil, mining chocolate eggs and crafting "delicious new chocolate inventions".
