RuneScape dev’s next game in 2011

RuneScape creator Jagex has announced their next browser-based MMO undertaking, Stellar Dawn.

Situated in a sci-fi world, the game aims to offer “deep and compelling science fiction storylines and a variety of gameplay styles”; PR talk that for now will have to satisfy.

The project is the studio’s biggest release yet, CEO Mark Gerhard notes, and is scheduled for launch some time next year with a preceding closed beta testing, the sign-ups for which are already open. Be prepared to depart with your system specs though.

No in-game shots yet, but you can find the first pieces of artwork in the gallery here.
