Christmas 2023 – OSRS

Christmas 2023

Happy Holidays from everyone on the Old School Team!

Reminder: Game Updates are now accompanied by a 30-minute downtime period to ensure we can take an up-to-date backup. Game Worlds will be offline at 11:30 GMT and should be back online at 12:00 GMT.

As it stands, Leagues will remain as it is over the Christmas period after next week’s update unless there are major bugs or issues that need addressing. Please continue to report your bugs and issues via the in-game Bug Report feature.

2023 Christmas Event
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Can you believe that 2023 is almost over? Neither can we!

This year’s fabulously festive Christmas Event takes us to Lumbridge, where regular troublemaker Jack Frost is up to his usual tricks. See, Jack’s been getting a little bored lately and to stop him being a nuisance, Santa’s banished him to Gielinor for the holidays. Not to be deterred from a little mischief, our frosty friend has rented a field in Lumbridge for a winter sports extravaganza – and he needs YOU to test it out!

After helping Jack Frost out, you might want to stick around a little longer – partaking in the event will earn you Christmas Achievements. We don’t want to spoil the fun, so they’ll be hidden until after the event – have fun, get silly, and see how many of them you can find!

Don’t worry, the Christmas Achievements are just a bit of fun. They don’t count towards Leagues tasks or any Achievement Diaries. Try them out solo or with your friends!

If you find the event has been a slippery slope to further snowy shenanigans, check out Jack Frost’s Sliding Challenge Mode, where you’ll race against the clock to see how fast you can slide! Nyooom!

Event Items

Frosty FashionScape is coming your way! This year, you can earn yourself the Snowglobe Helmet and the Icy Jumper to celebrate the season.

Don’t forget, you can also unlock all the rewards from previous years by speaking to Diango at his stall in Draynor.

Christmas Livestream

Today, Tuesday December 12th, marks the last livestream of the year! Join us for a festive extravaganza!

The J-Mods will be in-game playing through this year’s Christmas Event and having fun with the community. Back in the studio, Santa has dropped by with some OSRS Boss Top Trumps to give away to a few lucky winners – tune in for your chance to win!

You can also discuss this update on our official forums, on the 2007Scape subreddit, the Steam forums, or the community-led OSRS Discord in the #gameupdate channel. For more info on the above content, check out the official Old School Wiki.
