Secret World Legends is a revamp and relaunch of Funcom’s acclaimed shared world action RPG, The Secret World, that features a new free-to-play business model, snazzy new visuals, a redesigned progression system and an updated combat system that should make beating the crap out of occult monstrosities that much more enjoyable.
The Secret World is a popular massively multiplayer role playing game that gained a large fan base due to its occult modern day game world, fast paced combat and wide selection of monsters to fight – from mummies to robots. In it players join one of three secret societies (factions) and fight their way through zombie infested fishing villages, battle mummies in Egypt, take on vampires and werewolves in Transylvania and deal all manner of weird shit in Japan. Secret World Legends looks set to retain the globe trotting monster slaying action, but with a significant upgrade to the game world and gameplay, with enhanced visuals, better quest design, a more intuitive UI and an updated combat system that is designed to feel more natural.
The move to free-to-play promises not to be too intrusive, with all equipment being unlockable via in game play and all present and future game content available for free. The premium currency is mainly just used to purchase additional character slots, weapon slots, inventory slots and vanity items. The Secret World is a great game but Secret World Legends is a welcome relaunch that should help breath new life into a game that was starting to show its age. Sign up for the Beta now to join in the monster hunting fun.
