A German RuneScape Ad for the introduction of RuneScape in German

RuneScape Germany is the German version of RuneScape, in which all game content is translated into German. This version of RuneScape was added on 14 February 2007,[1] and marked the first international language for a Jagex game.

It allows players who speak German to interact with the game and other players more easily, and is useful to residents of Germany and other German-speaking parts of the world, as well as people who may be learning the language and wish to practice.

History[edit | edit source]

From 14 February 2007 to 6 March 2007 a closed beta for the German version took place. [2][3] Followed by an open beta [4] from 7 March 2007 to 27 March 2007. With the 28 March 2007 German version of RuneScape got officially released.[5] The translation of RuneScape into the German language started in the year 2004. Back then the game had over 2 million words to translate.[5]

Prior to ClusterFlutterer, RuneScape Germany had 6 worlds, which were subsequently removed. These worlds had an increase in popularity, owing to the majority of macro programs being restricted to only work in English.[source needed]

The three remaining worlds are reflective of the current player base who have German as their primary language, or are hoping to train unhindered. Unfortunately, before bots were nuked, it looked like that more people spoke English[source needed] than German in these worlds, to have a play in a server without macros - this has now changed.
