Jagex's open-world fantasy MMORPG RuneScape kicks things off with a bang this 2022 by obliterating its iconic Duel Arena in favour of Het's Oasis. After 18 long years of blood, sweat and tears, the PvP battlefield has now been destroyed in a community event of cataclysmic proportions.

RuneScape welcomes an all-new landscape with the Oasis Restoration, letting players tinker around with new skilling methods as well as two new mini-quests. Now that the Duel Arena has been destroyed by an earthquake, players must band together to restore the area and transform it into an oasis.

Rebuilding takes the form of daily tasks, where players can earn generous rewards based on community progress. Tons of exclusive event rewards await those who participate in the event, which includes a new title, desert-themed cosmetic armour, a new crocodile pet and more.

Players who are on the hunt for more learning and exploration opportunities can boost their Agility, Hunter and Farming skills in Het's Oasis as well. To top it all off, the new area also includes mini-quests where players can discover secrets surrounding Het’s Tomb during the Elder God Wars saga.

If you're eager to give the new Oasis a look-see or you simply want to give the game a go, you can download RuneScape on PC, Steam, the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a cross-platform game that's free-to-play with in-app purchases.
