Hello everybody

This great little gem of a MMO - The Secret World (TSW) has gone B2P with NO sub.

Of course there's still the opportunity to subscribe in different ways, but if that's not your cup of tea, then it's totally FREE to play with NO restrictions!

AMAZON has the game on SALE right now for around $15 - normally it's more around $50-60 - so go get it if you feel like trying it out. laugh
I think STEAM too has it on sale.

The playerbase are definitely more mature and the tone on the forums too.
So far we have been blessed with almost no trolls :)

It's VERY different from other MMO's - no classes etc.
You are just you, who can dress ANY WAY you like.

YOu start out in a training area, where you get to pick 2 different weapons.
These 2 you can actually use for the rest of the game if you like, lol

The skills you get from a wheel which contains different features for each kind of weapon.

SP points goes to add the amount of damage/healing/survival etc for each weapon.
AP goes to unlock different damage/healing/AOE effects for each weapon.

You get to add 7 active skills and 7 passive skills from the AP wheel.
The active skills HAS to be from whatever weapon you have equipped - the passives you can also pick from weapons you don't have equipped.

Eventually you'll have ALL skills for ALL weapons unlocked and can "respec" into whatever role/weapon you like.

Some weapons are clearly meant for healing, others more for tanking or DPS - but it's really all up to you, HOW you want to put it all together and play.

Really a new and refreshing look at an MMO.

EDIT:
Forgot the most important part.
Some of the missions(repeatable) they have are VERY adventure like.

Thanks for the info.

I played the free 3 day demo, and enjoyed it.

Bought the hard copy today, and some killer gaming headphones so Diane will quit telling me to turn it down.

I'm totally involved in Guild Wars 2 right now.

Try to do one big game at a time, to stay focused.

Really like the game. Level 36 right now

I am looking forward to Secret World.


Thanks Dunn

Well, mayan zombies, huge ugly and deadly harbingers, mayan witchdoctors spawning everywhere and dropping stuff like great weapons, special Ki'n points(money), mats and runes, which can be used to open the gates to a dungeon with even more fun challenges.

Needles to say I haven't been in the dungeon, because I'm too scared and haven't gotten all the runes required, lol.

There's tons of people running around killing, kiting and whatnot.
Very busy.

It has absolutely nothing to do with christmas though :P

There's Lore to be found and achievements to be...well achieved laugh

Remember this is not an MMO like any other - it's FILLED with story. Great story.

The lore and achievements has great writing in them.. really fantastic writing, if you take the time to read it.
One can tell it stems from Ragnar...

Forgot to add, that I have 5 "Buddy keys", which gives you free access to try the game for a 24 hour period.

You'll receive an email with instructions - so PM me your preferred email address and I'll send it to the first 5 I receive laugh

Be prepared for a long download - it's around 30GB - and the downloader can be a little tricky...
But just close it and reopen it and everything will be OK again.
