Funcom celebrates successful Secret World Legends launch, reveals update roadmap
Secret World Legends is here and free to play! Unleashed just two weeks ago, Secret World Legends has seen a surge of new player activity in the two weeks since it launched. Now more accessible than ever and featuring revamped combat, progression, and a host of other improvements, Secret World Legends is the ultimate incarnation of Funcom’s modern day online RPG The Secret World and is an effort from the studio to put the game back on the map and give it new life that will see its epic story continued in future updates.
Today, Funcom has released visual update roadmap, detailing just what new content is coming in the months ahead and when players can expect to get their hands on it. View the roadmap here.
“This reboot is as much for the fans as it is for new players,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “This is our gamble, our best bet and our best effort, at making sure the Secret World universe can live on and hopefully even become something bigger and better than it was. It is not about replacing what was there, it is about giving it another chance to succeed so that we can keep the lights burning and add new content and continue the amazing storyline the game is so acclaimed for. It is still early, but we are very encouraged by the initial success of Secret World Legends these past two weeks. It has been years since we last saw a surge of player activity like this in the Secret World universe and it is a very good start leading up to Steam launch July 31st.”
Secret World Legends revamps the core gameplay experience to be more accessible to both newcomers and long-time fans, introducing stronger progression structures, streamlined quest flow, and improved visuals and UI. Combat is more dynamic than ever, redesigned from traditional MMO-style tab targeting to a more modern action-driven reticle system, and each of the game’s nine weapon types have been reengineered with new mechanics to offer a unique feel in battle.
Set within a dark and mature story universe, Secret World Legends plunges players into a sweeping adventure into the supernatural underbelly of myths and legends that exists in the shadows of our own realm. Travel the globe in pursuit of mysterious forces threatening the world, using your wits and abilities to solve complex investigations and uncover the truth. The game is fully free to play and available on www.secretworldlegends.com, and will also launch on Steam of July 31st.
