Old School RuneScape sinks its teeth into the vampyre city of Darkmeyer
16 years since its introduction, the Myreque storyline continues with the ‘Sins of the Father‘ quest and brings players face-to-face with the feared Lord Drakan
Thursday June 4th 2020, Cambridge, UK – The world of Old School RuneScape has grown once again today with the launch of Darkmeyer. This new content release features a dramatic quest – Sins of the Father – which provides the opportunity to unlock the gates to the vampyric city of Darkmeyer.
Sins of the Father takes players on the bloodstained path of a long-running storyline that sees freedom fighters, the Myreque, attempt to free the dark swamplands of Morytania from the evil grasp of feared vampyre leader Lord Drakan.
Completing Sins of the Father opens the previously inaccessible city of Darkmeyer. Within its walls, players will discover a multitude of new shops, amenities, enemies and skilling methods, including the Hallowed Sepulchre agility course and the Essence Mine.
- The Essence Mine offers players a new way to train the Runecrafting skill by utilising the mysterious power of the mineral deposits in Darkmeyer.
- The Hallowed Sepulchre is a new minigame where players can train their Agility skill by traversing the boobytrapped crypt which houses the long-dead citizens of the ancient city of Hallowvale.
Mike Donatelli, Product Director of Old School RuneScape, said:
“The Myreque is a dramatic storyline and one which is close to many players’ hearts. It is one of the oldest and longest quest series in game, and players have enjoyed unravelling the history of the vampyres and the elusive Lord Drakan. As always, we have collaborated closely with the Old School RuneScape community throughout the development of Darkmeyer, with an emphatic vote of ~90% of 55,000+ polled players backing the quest.”
