The Secret World released a video today showing Game Director Joel Bylos contemplating the end of the world, and its implications. If you don’t know, December 21st marks what many feel is the Mayan calendar’s prediction of the end of the world. So what does his apocalyptic bucket list consist of? Making sure as many people as possible try The Secret World.
The video is quite entertaining, and I recommend you watch it in its entirety, but at around 2:50 Joel pretty emphatically tells a group of suits at a meeting table to “drop the subscription”.
What this means exactly we can not say for sure right now. This could very easily be just a free trial, or free weekend event. But what the video seems to imply is that on December 21st, The Secret World is going free-to-play. The video ends with a “to be continued…”, so there seems to be more info on its way in the future. Many folks have thought since its launch earlier this year that it is simply a matter of when, not if, the TSW would go F2P. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for what’s in-store in the coming weeks for The Secret World.
