More than just a name change, Funcom says it will feature "a redesigned combat system to make action feel more natural, more intuitive systems to interact with, enhanced visuals, and an improved flow of the quests, as well as the structure of the early game for new players."

In Secret World Legends, players fight against supernatural enemies in a story where "ancient myths and legends cross over into modern day." Players have weapons and superhuman abilities at their disposal. You can read more about the game on its Steam page and through its official site.
