Is Santa Bringing The Secret World's Open Beta for Christmas?
If Funcom does make that target it will be interesting to see how well that plays with the upcoming launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic on December 20th, which is also published by The Secret World's co-publisher, EA.
But dont get too hopeful, Caron does state that the beta may arrive a bit later, which would stand to reason given that you wouldn't expect to have such a long open beta phase for a game like The Secret World that's scheduled to launch in April 2012. This could also be a simple case of mistaken communication. Either way, stay tuned and we'll update you if more news becomes available.
Caron also stated that The Secret World will retail for around $50-$60 and that the subscription fee will be around $15-$17 per month.
