Group Ironman is Old School RuneScape players’ most-voted new game mode ever – and it’s live in-game today

Old School RuneScape just became even more competitive with the launch of Group Ironman, an all-new co-op mode, available to players on both desktop and mobile. After receiving the highest number of player votes of any content poll in Old School RuneScape's history, today’s Group Ironman launch finally brings team-based play to the game’s highly popular Ironman game mode. 

You can check out the launch trailer here: https://youtu.be/ofP-cew6NHo.

Group Ironman sees players team up to become Old School legends. Teams of two to five players compete together in a fierce contest of wills and skills where they must devise strategies to set new records and rise to the top of the leaderboards. What’s more, unlike typical Ironman, there are no restrictions between team members, allowing them to trade their resources, enjoy shared storage of equipment and even visit each other’s Player-Owned Houses. This unique way to experience Old School is the ultimate social way to play.

Every piece of content that goes into Old School RuneScape is voted on by the players in polls and requires a 75% majority vote to pass. The Group Ironman poll saw more than 140,000 players cast their vote – making it the most player-voted poll in the game’s eight-year history – and achieved a very successful 80% approval rating.

Kieren Charles, Lead Content Developer Old School RuneScape, said:
Following the success of Hardcore Ironman in 2016, which received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community and saw players diving into its brutal challenges, we’re excited to bring a whole new adventurous twist on the Old School experience with Group Ironman. Players can now bring together their most trusted companions to take on the challenge together. It’s about earning everything with blood, sweat and tears, through gathering, crafting, and fighting. It’s a real challenge, pushing players to their limits while allowing them to share in the glory with their comrades. We’re confident that both our community and new players alike will find their time in Group Ironman an exhilarating one.


To coincide with today’s launch, four content creator teams will showcase Group Ironman on their live streams as they put their freshly forged teams to the test. Each team is made up of top gaming creators and will be playing on a Temporary Creator-only Game World with accelerated XP and Drops to help give them a concentrated taste of what Group Ironman has to offer. The Group Ironman streams will be available to watch from October 6th at 19.00BST/ 11.00PDT and 24.00BST/ 16.00PDT here: https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Old%20School%20RuneScape.

Group Ironman is available to Old School RuneScape members and non-members. Players can create a new account for the game mode and use ‘The Node’ to form new groups or they can form them on their own in real life. So, grab your friends and get ready to prove that you’re the superior fighter.
