The Secret World Subscriptions Now Optional

Following a hint on Monday, Funcom announces it has removed the subscription requirement from The Secret World, and the MMORPG can now be played online for just the cost of the game. "With this recent change there is no reason not to join and take part in ‘The Secret World’," says Game Director Joel Bylos. "Most players end up having a ton of fun once they delve into the myths and legends of 'The Secret World,' and we believe the game has the potential to be even more successful without the subscription entry barrier. It is an ambitious and very exciting move for us!" Word is: "There are no complicated rules or restrictions, no complex matrixes telling you what you can and cannot access. Pay Once, Play Forever – it’s that simple." They note that purchasing the game now will include all the content from the upcoming Issue #5, and this FAQ explains that future content packs will be optional purchases. There is also still the option to purchase a membership, which offers monthly bonus points and game store discounts. Players' remaining subscriptions will be transferred to the new membership program.

ETA: My mistake! This is the opposite of what I want, which is free trial.


As I am an employed engineer, I have no issues with purchases or monthly fees. However, since City of Heroes closed, I have only been playing Tera. Free trial is helpful as I have been burned on stupid new MMORPGs many times. More often than not, actually. For every CoH, WoW, Eve, or EQ, there's two or three Horizons or Vanguards. (Or Star Trek or Star Wars: Old Republic)
