Issue #1: Unleashed, the first update for Funcom’s modern-day MMO The Secret World, has gone live today. Also celebrate the game being live for one month by playing for free this weekend.
Issue #1: Unleashed introduces several new elements to the game, including several new investigation missions – Funcom’s unique and innovative take on MMO questing. Players will now also be able to use the marketplace, a brand new, cross-dimensional feature allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter what dimension they are playing on. Visit the official website for more information on the update.
From August 3rd at 4pm GMT until August 6th at 7am GMT, anyone will be able to join the celebrations by registering and playing the game for free. Even players with beta accounts, early access accounts or simply inactive accounts will be able to enjoy The Secret World this weekend.
To fuel the celebrations, Funcom is also giving away in-game fireworks to everyone – up to 15 per character! And not only that, players will also be tasked with a special challenge this weekend: complete 30 in-game missions to help those in need and receive a special in-game t-shirt as well as 1200 bonus points that can be used in the in-game store! During the celebration weekend there will also be a special leaderboard showing the top 100 mission-solvers in the game!
