The Secret World Issue #1 July 2012 “Unleashed” Revealed!

Contents of the new July update which Funcom calls Issue #1, has been revealed! So far, in depth explanations of the new missions is included and it’s going to take us back to familiar places and faces. There was also a sneaky little hint dropped about expanding the story revolving around a female character in the Solomon Island that will reveal more about her, or who she pretends to be..I wonder who that is.

Also, two new Nightmare mode dungeons are coming out which are The Ankh and Hell Fallen. Good news for all NM raiders in TSW and within my Cabal ( We have some dedicated NM raiders in Bloodpact ) as this offers them more options whenever they are locked out from farming the existing dungeons. That also means more Nightmare mode loot!

Apparently, on-site construction in game is already taking place within New York, London and Seoul in preparation for the update. Keen gamers have been noticing this, and I’m curious to go exploring to find out for myself!

Finally, we are getting a cross dimension Marketplace! This allows us players to buy, sale, trade, and ship items across to fellow players and start building the economy within The Secret World! So it’s a good idea to hang on to your PAX Romana for now.

All in all, everything sounds great and is setting up to be a great update at the end of this month so hang on and enjoy the ride folks! PS, Awesome Issue #1 poster!

Full announcement here.

Cheerios.


Fresh Press: Ragnar Tørnquist Says TSW To Get Monthly Content

Some great breaking news has come in today from Funcom producer Ragnar Tørnquist as posted in his announcement The Secret World State of the Game update.  Reading through it, it’s definitely some awesome news for dedicated players of The Secret World including myself, because there is a ton of things promised to come out soon. Let’s take a look at what’s on the list.

1)New Content On Monthly Basis

Hell yes! It’s always fantastic when MMO makers try to keep the hype up of a newly released game by pumping out more content to keep gamers happy. It’s a sure fire way to help convince us that there the future of TSW is bright and that there is definitely longevity for The Secret World. The first of these content updates will be unleashed on Tuesday, July 31st. Stay tuned for more details on that!

2) Said Content Updates Will Include Mission Packs!

Hell yes again! According to Ragnar, these mission packs will include more investigation missions for every zone in the game. I cannot tell you how glad I am to hear this, because I am a huge fan of investigation missions. The thrill and satisfaction of solving something puzzlingly difficult is like a drug to me, and I welcome more of them! More action and sabotage missions are also lined up, so worry not you Leroy Jenkins fans.

3) Shiny New Weapons

Boom! New weapons are always a welcome addition. This game has so many of them currently that I feel like I need a gallery on the net with pictures of every one of em for my own viewing pleasure. There was also a clue about a new auxiliary weapons to be released, and my sharp guess would be a Bazooka. Remember, you read it here first.

4) Raids

Hell yes yet again! Having been a dungeon whore thus far I cannot wait to get into my first TSW raid! Teaser mentions that the raid will be going down in New York. Oh no. Kirsten..

5) Two Large Adventure Zones In The Making

The bomb has been dropped! Two new regions are in the works for the future! But where are we off to next? Let the speculation begin.

6) PVP Dungeon Planned

Say what? My thoughts exactly. I will be keeping a close eye on this. Curious. Very curious.

7) TSW Will Celebrate Seasonal Events

Mentioned events are Halloween and Winter Solstice. Interesting, can’t wait to see how this goes. Cosmetics and more freebies please?

8) A combination of  news regarding Cosmetic Stores, Pets, Combat, Chronicle tweaks and more.

All in all, it’s an anouncement that has sure peaked interests and raised eyebrows as well as made players squirm in excitement, as I have, and I’m eagerly waiting for more news because The Secret World is love. For the full anouncement, visit the announcement thread here.
