Funcom has announced that its story-driven MMO, The Secret World, is being relaunched as the free-to-play Secret World Legends.
Secret World Legends is a “shared-world action RPG” and features revamped combat, a newly designed progression system, and updated visuals, according to the developer.
“Over the course of five years, The Secret World has created a truly memorable RPG universe that stands out to this day for the uniqueness of its dark setting and tone, the depth of its quest design, and the high quality of its voice acting throughout,” Rui Casais, CEO of Funcom, said. “Secret World Legends uses that foundation to mark a new era for the game, offering a fresh start for newcomers and long-time fans alike, delivering a captivating journey that can be enjoyed entirely on your own or with friends.”
“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,” Scott Junior, executive producer, added. “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.”
