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.

You can check out the launch trailer for Secret World Legends below

New Assassin’s Creed Leak May Have Revealed The New Main Hero

A leak from earlier today from the Le Verità dell’Animus Facebook fan page (Update: it appears they have taken down the photo) looks like it may have revealed the name of the protagonist in the new upcoming Assassins Creed game. In the image, shown above, we see that he is refered to as Ba Yek and what appears to be Egyptian hieroglyphs above it. There has been much talk that the new Assassins Creed game may be set in Egypt, and this is looking to be helping those rumors.

To lend credit to this leak, Ubisoft’s Ashraf Ismail, who was the director on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, earlier today on Twitter appeared to reference the leak by saying “Nice t-shirt.”

Ubisoft took last year off from Assassins Creed, but stated earlier this year in an earning call that there would be another one coming this fiscal year. So far that is all that has been released, but you can be sure when they do, we will let you guys know.

Boss Key Productions First Game, LawBreakers, Also Coming To PS4 This Year

lawbreakers-4

Announced as a PC exclusive almost two years ago, Lawbreakers; a competitive multiplayer shooter, from Cliff Bleszinski and Boss Key Studio’s has now officially been announced that it will also be coming to PS4.

lawbreakers-3

Lawbreakers will be coming out later this year, as a digital-only title on PC and PS4 with a starting price of $29.99. They are not releasing a “seasons pass” and there will be no “pay to win” mechanics. That base $30 will entitle players to all future “content upgrades” for free. That includes things like new characters, maps, and modes, all of which will be available to the entire player base. Among other things, this has the benefit of not harming matchmaking by splitting up players, which Bleszinski believes is particularly crucial for a skill-based game.

Cliff also revealed during a round table interview that it will be playing at 60FPS on PS4. He also stated that it would not be coming as a cross-play title across PC and PS4 as “cross-play is dumb,” so PC vs PC and PS4 vs PS4, no PC vs PS4.

You can take a look at the trailer announcing the PS4 version of Lawbreakers here

No release date has yet been given for the PC or PS4 version of LawBreakers yet, but the PC is currently in Closed Beta, and Bleszinksi did say there would be at least one PS4 beta upcoming. We will fill you in when we know more.
