Funcom has eliminated the mandatory subscription from The Secret World, assuming a model not unlike Guild Wars 2. Those that maintain their subscription will receive points to spend on virtual goods, while all missions, abilities and equipment will be available to all players.

“Everyone who has purchased (or will purchase) the game can now enjoy the full game without being required to sign-up for a monthly fee,” said Funcom senior community manager Tarib. “This means that all of the heralded story-line and all of the game content available right now can be played as you please without requiring any additional payment.”
