The lights are on
The Secret World – Funcom's modern-day MMO about competing secret societies the world over – is dropping its subscription fee.
There is still a membership option, which will get you money to spend in the in-game store, a way to get double experience for a period each day, and an in-game story discount. But once you buy the game, it's free to play forever.
For more on The Secret World, check out this trailer for the game's latest update, which includes its first raid.
Note: The original article incorrectly stated that the game was going free to play. The correct distinction has since been corrected. We apologize for the mistake.

I'll try it....
Great! Now I can actually try this MMO out.
It's buy to play NOT free to play.
YAY!!! This was the only thing keeping me from going back. I shall now be returning. People should really try this game now and see, I loved it.
I hate subscriptions!
Not worth subscription so they made a good decision
I was waiting for this!
I called it when I was invited for alpha testing, and later beta. The game wasn't up to snuff and I didn't see it competing with other subscription based mmos. I think that dropping the subscription fees was a good move, now they might get more users.
MMos are learning
FunCom hasn't done wrong by me so far, so I'll probably have to check this out. Now I just need Ragnar to give me Dreamfall Chapters.
No complaints here.
