Today we have released the massive and extremely sinister Underground Pass quest.
For people not familiar with this quest, it is the 3rd quest in an ongoing storyline following the Plague City and Biohazard quests. Once you have completed the Biohazard quest speak to King Lathas of Ardougne to begin the adventure.
For people who have finished this quest, this update also opens up some popular combat training areas, and the ability to get and recharge the staff of Iban.
This is the final piece of content which needed to be converted from RuneScape Classic. This means that the rest of our development staff can now be assigned to writing brand new game content.
We are now able to begin working on part four of this storyline, which is amongst the many other features listed in our "Upcoming Runescape updates" which we posted on the 31st of March.
Today's update also includes a new filter option for public-chat. By pressing the 'public-chat' button at the bottom left of the game client a few times, you can now choose the new 'hide' mode. In this new mode public-chat will appear above nearby players heads, but will not appear in the bottom message box. This is particularly useful if you find your message box is getting flooded with nearby chat, but you don't want to block out what nearby people are saying entirely.
