The Secret World Relaunching As Free To Play Game

thesecretworld_logo

Several years ago, Funcom, the creators of Anarchy Online and Dark Age of Conan, created one of the most innovative Massively Multi-player Role Playing Games in The Secret World. That game had some problems, but also had one of the most unique gameplay loops, with genuinely interesting detective missions as well as your regular MMO fare, all set in an extremely unique backdrop of secret societies and things that go bump in the night.

Now they have decided that there is a lot to love in that game, but that maybe they did a few things wrong and maybe got a little too “out there” with some of the gameplay aspects, such as no levels or classes. Well now they have gone back to the drawing board and have fixed a lot of that games issues, and along the way decided to make it free to play in Secret World Legends.

Now anyone can go to their website, download Secret World Legends and enjoy, what is in my opinion, one of the best, most often overlooked MMO’s that has now been made even better.

Albion Online Headed Into Final Beta

Albion_Online_Final Beta_Art_s

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG in a similar vein to Ultima Online. They are creating a game similar to that, but with a new modern twist on the formula.

Currently the game is in beta until mid July, then it will be offline while they add in the final changes, before heading into the final beta on August 1st.

Albion Online is a giant open sandbox and thanks to a system of “you are what you wear” you can truly transform yourself into anything you want, just by changing the clothes you are wearing. In this way you can be a farmer dealing with your crops, to a bad ass archer just by changing your clothes. Thus allowing any player to truly play however they want.

They will be adding in three new, bigger biomes (area’s) for the final beta, as well as a reputation system. In the reputation system, if you are not nice, that could hold consequences such as guards hassling you or even arresting you depending on your reputation.

When the Final Beta of Albion Online goes live, all accounts will be reset to zero, with all Founders getting the perks from their Founder’s Packs, as well as the gold bought through the website credited to their game account.

If you are interested in learning more, or signing up for the beta, you can head over to their website Albion Online
