There’s nothing like dropping the news on a late Friday afternoon that a direly neglected MMORPG is getting a massive update in the near future to wake you up. We’ve seen so little movement on Secret World Legends over the past two years that one would be forgiven to assume that the game was effectively over, but perhaps not, as Funcom announced that “one of the biggest updates ever” is coming to the game on Tuesday, September 29th.
Funcom also announced “significant changes” to all of the game’s nine weapons, with special emphasis on healing and tanking. “Healers have been shifted to a more tactical playstyle to make their abilities and Elites feel more impactful while achieving new balance,” the studio said. “Tanking has received an overhaul and many tank-related abilities and passives have been redesigned or outright replaced to give each tank weapon a unique flavor and focus.”
