FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

The Secret World Goes "Free-To-Play" After 5 Months, Sets New Record

Posted on Wednesday, December 12 @ 12:11:34 PST by Jonathan_Leack

Paying for things is so overrated. Especially subscription fees. Those are just silly.

Funcom has announced that The Secret World no long requires a monthly fee to play. However, a purchase of game box is required to create an account and jump into its horrific world—see what I did there?

Unlike other MMOs which have gone free-to-play recently—*cough* Star Wars: The Old Republic *cough*—no content will be restricted. However, membership is available for the continued price of $14.99 and will carry some exclusive benefits. The benefits as listed on the official site are the following:
  • 'The Time Accelerator'. This clickable item increases experience gain for defeating monsters by 100% for 1 hour and has a 16 hour cool-down. This item can only be used by Members and Grand Masters.
  • $10 worth of Bonus Points given out every month which can be used towards any product in the Item Store of The Secret World (bonus points are valid for 6 months).
  • Membership Item-of-the-month gift (given out every month).
  • 10% discount to everything in the Item Store except Content Packs or other Packs (discounts to the Item Store do not stack with other offers).
Those are some truly stupendous perks. Looks like I'll have to reinstall the game now.
