Funcom's ambitious modern-setting MMO The Secret World is being offered by Steam at a 50 percent discount, for one day only.
The subscription-free game is priced at $14.99, down from its usual $29.99, but the offer is only good until 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 20. Funcom has continued to support the game since its launch last year, with regular content updates
The Secret World is set in a modern world impacted by myths and urban legends. Players travel the globe vanquishing monsters and solving mysteries. Polygon's Emily Gera scored the game 6.5 when it launched in July 2012, saying that despite a "unique and sometimes powerful" environment, it suffers from core MMO gameplay problems.
