Jagex to use Improbable SpatialOS in New Projects

Recommended Posts

Improbable and Jagex announced a technology partnership that will see the RuneScape studio deploy Improbable’s SpatialOS technology in future game production.

Improbable’s SpatialOS technology is a computation platform that allows developers to exceed the power of a single game engine or server. By building games with standard tools and deploying on SpatialOS, developers can build virtual worlds that offer permanent, persistent and engaging experiences.

Herman Narula, Improbable’s co-founder and CEO, commented:

Jagex has already made RuneScape an iconic brand in online gaming, and it’s great to be partnering with them to bring new levels of depth and scale to Jagex’s future creations by providing SpatialOS as a platform. From catching the first fish on Tutorial Island in 2001 to hunting for loot in the Wilderness, RuneScape and the world of Gielinor have given millions of players great stories to tell. We’re excited to see what such an experienced team with this established and well-loved IP will be able to do with our platform, which enables greater player density, larger and more detailed worlds and new forms of emergent gameplay.

Phil Mansell, COO and acting CEO of Jagex, said:

As a studio, we have online gaming at heart and we’ve always looked for technology that can help to deliver the best possible experience for our players. We’re looking forward to working with Improbable and discovering the advancements the SpatialOS platform can bring to multiplayer gaming.
