"ESB Gold is a massive change for us and our existing player base in terms of the way we provide content," says lead writer David Osborne. "We're used to drip-feeding great, additive parts of articles weekly, but that is about bringing all that together to give players something they really can immerse themselves in - a long-form narrative, a lot of skilling and combat material, a growth to a level cap - all the things you'd want or expect from an expansion."

Jagex have paid careful attention to changing ways in which people consume content, the popularity of binge-watching Netflix series seems to have inspired the MMO's change from regular upgrades to sprawling expansions.

We could do sizeable chunks of articles every 2 months, but we can not do as much as this."

Menaphos is about creating a critical mass of things for present, lapsed, and new players to gravitate towards, which might make the decision easier for those who are on the fence regarding if or when to dip in.

The Elder Scrolls Blades Items is a medieval fantasy kingdom that spans a huge number of environments and cultures, but it also excels in steampunk and modern-day influences.
