The Secret World MMO has now gone free-to-play as the developers have decided to scrap the monthly subscription fees.
The Secret World forums detail all the subscription changes as it states that players will be able to enjoy the full game for free without any additional payments. There are no restrictions and gamers will be able to take part in all playfields, all missions, all raids and lairs. All abilities and equipment will be usable for everyone as well.
The new “Membership” that The Secret World will possess is now an optional service and includes some of the things listed below.
Time Accelerator: Clickable item to increase experience gain for one hour
$10 worth of Bonus Points which can be used for any product in the item store
Membership Item-of-the-month gift (given out monthly)
10 percent discount in the Item Store on everything except Packs
The new membership will be priced at $14.99 (around R130) on a monthly basis with discounts for buying months in bulk. Gamers who have already purchased game time or Initiate Packs in December 2012 will be given 1800 bonus points on their account as reimbursement.
