Secret World players can still access an optional monthly membership at the same cost of the game’s subscription, and will get several benefits including:

- $10 worth of Bonus Points (given out every month)
- Item-of-the-month gift (given out every month)
- 10% discount to everything in the in-game store
Grandmasters can purchase a special pack that grants these benefits and also get an additional 10% discount in the in-game store (20% total discount).
Funcom will offer a 30% discount on the first purchase of 3, 6, and 12 month Membership plans throughout December.
