READ ME - An intro to Secret World Legends' forums




If you’re reading this, and we certainly hope you are, you’re now a part of the new Funcom community forums. Our goal with these forums is to unify the information by which we can communicate with our friends and fans, no matter their particular game of interest.

Please acquaint yourselves with the following:

In the future, the forums will expand to include the rest of our online titles, including Conan Exiles, Anarchy Online, and whatever lies beyond.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to speak with a Community Manager (such as myself–@andyb). Thanks, all!
