Secret World Legends Launch Day

Secret World Legends' proper release date is roughly as murky and unclear as the intricate plots and conspiracies within the game itself. Officially, the game comes out today, on June 26, 2017. However, a few days back, Funcom has announced a Head Start that allowed The Secret World's owners to begin playing a bit early. This offer then was extended to everyone, which promptly led to some server issues, that have since been resolved. And on top of it all, the game's Steam version won't be available until July 31, 2017.

However, since the game is pretty much playable already, here's the new Launch Trailer:

And a short description:

Secret World Legends is a story-driven, shared-world action RPG that plunges players into a shadowy war against the supernatural, where ancient myths and legends cross over into the modern day.
