Funcom's MMO The Secret World has re-launched as shared-world RPG Secret World Legends, and there's a new trailer.
Funcom launched The Secret World, a supernatural MMO, back in 2012. Although the game showed promise, it failed to find the commercial success that Funcom was hoping for. Rather than ditch the game, Funcom decided to take the premise, rebuild and rework it, and re-launch it as Secret World Legends. You can still play the original MMO, and now you can play Secret World Legends as well.
The new shared-world RPG launched today, and Funcom says it features "well over 100 hours of story-driven content." You can play through the game on your own, or you team up with friends.
Executive Producer Scott Junior says of the new game, "From the ambitious scale of its storytelling to the quality of quest design and voice acting, Secret World Legends delivers an experience unlike any other you can find in gaming. It's a captivating journey into the unknown with an adult setting and tone perfect for fans of deep, rewarding RPGs. And if you want, you can experience all of it with friends and strangers in this huge online world we've built. Or you can go at it alone - it's completely up to you."
You can get all the info on Secret World Legends, sign up to play for free, and download the client over at the game's official site. It will also be available on Steam, but not until July 31.
