Funcom Answers 'What Is Free to Play?'

Funcom Answers 'What Is Free to Play?' -

Funcom has posted an extensive article on the Secret World Legends site to answer the question, "What is free to play?" The team wanted to lay out in detail exactly what is meant by the term, particularly in light of more than a few questions from the community. 

The discussion takes part in several sections:

  • The goal is to share the game with as many players around the world as possible. This is best done by being F2P.  "Every story, every mission, every dungeon, every region–all free for everybody. This also means that any and all future content will also be free! "
  • Anything in the game can be obtained by playing the game. "Every item, skill and ability in the game can be obtained without needing to pay real money for it". There will be options, of course.
  • Marks of Favour: "These are a flexible currency used for a variety of things, such as purchasing items from the Auction House, additional weapons, potion refills, dungeon keys, fusing items, cosmetic options, social items, and more. "
  • "Aurum is Secret World Legends’ premium currency–you purchase Aurum with real money and use it to acquire various items, conveniences, and services."
Marks of Favour may be used to obtain Aurum, and Aurum may be used to obtain Marks of Favour. That’s where the Exchange comes in!  The Exchange is a currency market where you may trade Aurum with other players for Marks of Favour, and vice-versa.  You set the price, and you create the exchange rate.  This is your economy.

If you want the tl;dr version, click the image below. In short, everything is free to play and free to all players.
