The Secret World drops subscription fee, moves to paid DLC model

As of only minutes ago, occult horror MMO The Secret World has gone free-to-play. The change was hinted at in an “end of the world” video starring Game Director Joel Bylos yesterday, but now has been officially confirmed.

Explained in this forum thread, the F2P transition places no restrictions on free players, but you are still required to purchase the game (Guild Wars 2-style). Those who do purchase ‘Membership’ can accelerate their experience gain for 1 hour every 16 hours, get discounts in the Item Store, and occasional free stuff.

Check out all the details below. (PC, The Secret World)
