Lookie here, a name change. The Secret World is becoming Secret World Legends.
[quote]First and foremost, given the sweeping extent of the changes being implemented, Secret World Legends will reset story progression for anyone who joins, offering a fresh start for all players.
This will not erase your progression in The Secret World though! Secret World Legends will exist on a different server than The Secret World, meaning you will still be able to play your old character on The Secret World server. But we hope you consider starting anew in Secret World Legends to experience all the new content and updates coming to the game. We’ve made some major improvements to the game and server, so Secret World Legends will have its own client. You can have both Secret World Legends and The Secret World installed on the same computer and play either game at any time.[/quote]
My first reaction is that this is a terrible idea. Splitting your player base in an MMO is pretty much always bad, and the extra effort required to maintain two separate versions of the game is going to cut into their development resources. But hey, maybe they’ll pull it off!
Anyway, lots of details yet to come. They’re starting a beta soonish, which you can sign up for if you’re interested.
