The Secret World Returns as Secret World Legends This Spring
Closed beta currently on-going.
Remember Funcom’s The Secret World, the fantasical MMO from 2012 that didn’t quite pan out? The studio behind Conan Exiles and The Park has announced that it will be relaunching this Spring as Secret World Legends.
Executive producer Scott Junior made the announcement recently and also revealed how things would be changing. “One of our biggest goals in relaunching the game has been to reimagine the core gameplay experience in a way befitting a modern-day action RPG.
“Secret World Legends features combat that feels more natural, deep systems that are more intuitive, better structuring of the early game for new players, and improved mission flow to strengthen the pace of progression for players.”
If you were dedicated to the original, your progress sadly won’t carry over. “Given the sweeping extent of the changes being implemented, Secret World Legends will reset story progression for anyone who joins, offering a fresh start for all players,” said Junior. Since the game is on a separate server, it will be possible to play with an existing character.
Furthermore, if you have an existing membership, this can be transferred over to Secret World Legends. “Any remaining time on your membership will turn into Patron time in Secret World Legends. If you are a Grand Master and link your account, you will be a Patron for life!”
Head here for the closed beta in-progress. Secret World Legends will release this Spring on PC.
