GameBlast

GameBlast is an annual charity initiative by SpecialEffect, a UK-based charity that helps people with disabilities play games. Gamers and gaming companies are encouraged to take part in a gaming-related challenge to raise money for the charity over the period of 48 hours.

Jagex has supported the GameBlast initiative for many years, including by running 24 hour livestreams, releasing cosmetic items into the game, and previously opening up the Well of Goodwill for people to donate in-game coins, items, and bonds. Double XP Weekends are common around GameBlast.

2018

GameBlast 2018 interface

The interface used for GameBlast 18

Jagex held another 24 hour livestream starting at 12:00 UTC on 23 February 2018 and ending at 12:00 UTC on 24 February 2018 in support of GameBlast '18.[1] The well was not reopened.

The limited edition GameBlast 2018 Pack is available from an in-game interface throughout the weekend for 400 RuneCoins (P2P: 360). The GameBlast Relic Pack is also available to purchase for 200 RuneCoins (P2P: 180). It contains all the GameBlast-related items from the previous years. The livestream was accompanied by a double XP weekend, and the experience multiplier increased to 2.2x for members (with Invention still being affected by half of this) and 1.25x for free players for a period of 30 minutes every time that a £10,000 milestone was reached during the stream. When a milestone had been reached, the following message was shown:

We've just hit a target of [milestone] during GameBlast 2018! As a reward for this generosity, please enjoy an extra XP boost for 30 minutes!

LootScape was enabled as part of the stream, allowing players to obtain the GameBlast 2018 Tunic, awarded throughout the stream and placed directly into the player's customisation interface.
