In March of 2017, developer Funcom confirmed that its narrative-driven online game, The Secret World, is getting a relaunch. The developer is releasing the game as The Secret World Legends and the good new is that the title will be free to play.
It is marketed as a “conspiracy themed shared world” RPG. According to the developer, the transition to free to play is due to a desire to have more players experience this title. The pay-upfront model was proving to be a hurdle for the developers so the best course of action was to remove it to bring new players into the mix.
Now, Funcom has confirmed that the game is releasing on PC on June 26, 2017. In celebration of the release date announcement, Funcom ha shared a new trailer to discuss the game and let the community know what it is about.
Secret World Legends plunges players into a shadowy war against the supernatural in an adventure that crosses our world with the realms of ancient myth and legend. As players traverse the globe unraveling complex investigations into the unknown, they’ll need to uncover clues and use their own wits as much as their characters’ abilities. A highly extensive and customizable arsenal of firearms, weapons, gear and otherworldly powers will give players the strength to battle the forces of darkness as they dig deeper into these vast and mysterious lands. Players can go at it alone and enjoy the over 100 hours of story at their own pace, or team up with others as they explore the world and unravel its mysteries.
The concept seems promising and we do suggest that you hive this game a try.
