The Secret World Drops Subscription Fee

Posted on December 12, 2012 AT 04:47am

Funcom has removed The Secret World‘s subscription requirement, allowing players to play the full game after buying the box.

There will be “optional” paid content packs released, with the first expected in January. Anyone who signs up to the game before the end of December will get the first pack for free. There will also be the usual free issue updates as well.

A Membership option is available for $15 a month (bulk discounts available) which will grant users a Time Accelerator–doubling the amount of experience gained for one hour, one every 16 hours–$10 worth of points to spend in the cash shop a month, a mystery gift on the first patch day of every month, and a 10 percent discount on all items in the store except content packs.

Grand Master Lifetime subscribers will get all this plus an increased 20 percent discount in the cash shop. Anyone who is currently a subscriber will be granted 1200 bonus points to use in the shop and can claim the Time Accelerator for free.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
