Funcom, the developers at The Secret World – recently announced that Secret World Legends’ beta has arrived as the game is set for relaunch this spring:

“Over the course of five years, The Secret World has created a truly memorable RPG universe that stands out to this day for the uniqueness of its dark setting and tone, the depth of its quest design, and the high quality of its voice acting throughout. Secret World Legends uses that foundation to mark a new era for the game, offering a fresh start for newcomers and long-time fans alike, delivering a captivating journey that can be enjoyed entirely on your own or with friends.”

The Secret World Legends will will have its own client and will reset the story progression however it will not erase progression for The Secret World players as the two will exist on separate servers: ”we’ve made some major improvements to the game and server, so Secret World Legends will have its own client (and) you can have both Secret World Legends and The Secret World installed on the same computer and play either game at any time”.

Moreover,  a free transfer process is planned to allow the move of vanity items like Mounts, Pets, Vehicles, and other customizations that have been purchased through the item store from The Secret World to the new characters in Secret World Legends and more information will be available on this process closer to launch; also, players which are part of the Membership program can copy their membership from The Secret World to Secret World Legends – with any time remaining on the membership turning into Patron time in Secret World Legends and Grand Masters that link their account will be a Patron for life.
