Funcom has announced that their beloved MMORPG The Secret World will be relaunched as Secret World Legends, a kind of remaster, if you will.
The relaunch is a completely revamped and newly designed game, including everything from graphics to combat and levelling up. All in addition to brand new story content and adventures for both n00bs and seasoned veterans of the game.
Legends will continue to be free to play, and according to executive producer Scott Junior, “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.”
However, your The Secret World game progression will not be erased, as Legends exists on an entirely different server. That said, you can still retain your “vanity items like Mounts, Pets, Vehicles, and other customizations that have been purchased through the item store from The Secret World to your characters in Secret World Legends” through a free transfer process.
As to why Funcom has decided to relaunch the game, Junior has stated that:
“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.”
