Funcom’s supernatural MMO The Secret World sheds its skin and emerges as the free-to-play, shared-world RPG Secret World Legends on June 26, 2017.
Going from buy-to-play to fully free-to-play, Secret World Legends is a reboot of Funcom’s conspiracy-themed massively multiplayer game The Secret World. Now reimagined as a shared-world role-playing game, Secret World Legends puts more focus on the player’s experience uncovering the vast storyline and their journey through locations that spans the real, modern-day world.
Secret World Legends features a revamped combat system, newly designed progression system, updated visuals, and more. You can choose to explore and uncover the story by yourself, or you can team up with other players. In the game’s central hub, Agartha, you can meet and socialize with hundreds of other players, while player population in the adventure areas beyond will be tightly controlled to make sure that the experience is as immersive as possible and that the focus remains on you and your journey.
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.
Mark your calendars! Funcom’s shared world RPG Secret World Legends will hit Steam on June 26 this year. More information on Secret World Legends, including a detailed breakdown of the game’s features is available on the game’s website.
