Watch Secret World Legends’ official launch trailer

If you’re a The Secret World fan who hadn’t already given Secret Worlds Legends a shot — and given this weekend’s exploits and downtime, we wouldn’t blame you — today is your day to get in there, as the first of the game’s two planned formal launches begins today. (The second, on Steam, is later this summer on July 31st.) Do note that this version of the game is indeed free-to-play.

Funcom has released a new trailer to go with the launch; we’ve tucked that down below. If you’re still on the fence, consider both Larry’s and MJ’s very different first impressions of the game to push you over.

Mostly loving it TBH.

Same. I finally returned home and linked accounts. Set up my controller and am having a blast.

Just learned Funcom has region blocked Japan from access to SWL on steam. I’d thought about waiting to try it once all the dust settles from their issues but nope. Even if they open it up later, I’ll not bother.

So with the AH closed, where can I buy a chaos focus ?

Hopefully this morning’s hotfix is to get the AH / exchange back up.

I don’t think you can. You’ll either have to trade with another player, if you and they both have Patron status, or hope you get one from a weapon loot bag.

Well, that’s a bugger, what with being restricted to just the archetypes on character creation.

The game has drawn me in in ways I wanted the original to do. I hit so many walls of frustration playing TSW, and finally gave up on it. I couldn’t even do holiday quests because I never got through the requirements needed to do them.

All I wanted to do was enjoy the storylines, puzzles, and other types of missions, and looks like now I’m getting that. I’m enjoying the heck out of the game.

still a very below average game… the combat is just not good at all. nice trailer though. this wasnt a “relaunch” – it was a patch. clever of funcom to try to get new players in this dead game. might work.

This was a real shady attempt. I am never touching anything they publish again after this straight up lie.

I gave it an honest shot. I made a character that uses pistols. The combat is the definition of ‘clunky.’ Not smooth in the slightest, no feeling of feedback and I had to keep clicking instead of being able to hold down the left mouse button. No option to change this as far as I could tell. It’s very transparent they just slapped a reticle on the screen and tied some hotkeys to the mouse buttons.

Combat is like TERA, NWO or Skyforge but much, much worse.

I forgot how much I loved this game. Hooked me in big time, can’t wait to play thru the game again. Illuminati is pretty neat too, loving some of the flavor text on the mission reports.

Don’t have a huge opinion on the new combat system aside from it being very weird to have player character levels. I am liking the weapon specializations, really nice touch to make each weapon unique.

Sadly, we’re probably not going to continue with it.

We’d played TSW through Tokyo (aagh, aegis was the worst idea ever), and were really looking forward to going back through old content as a refresher, with better play, new talent structures…just hoping there would be enough different to justify basically doing it all again.

I simply don’t think there is. It’s a FINE game, if you’ve never played TSW you should take this opportunity to do so. But for those of us that have done it a few times….nah, not enough there to motivate me to do it again

This is fair.

The main story and questing components of the game haven’t changed really at all. It is all the gameplay around it that has. If you have already done the storyline a few times with all of the factions or such, you probably won’t get much out of SWL unless you want a character for new story content (whenever that may happen).
