Funcom is excited to announce that the third content update for the company's modern-day massively multiplayer online game 'The Secret World' is now live. This is the third content update following the launch of 'The Secret World' less than three months ago, and it is part of the development team's ambitious post-launch content plan.
Since launch, the developers have added many new missions, the rocket launcher weapon, a plastic surgery clinic and a barbershop, a looking-for-group-tool and much, much more. And the latest update doesn't just contain new content, but it also sets the stage for our first seasonal event!
The event and the Cat God himself will make their appearance in October as we are getting closer to Halloween, so look forward to a phone call from an old acquaintance to set you off.
Here is the cover for Issue #3: The Cat God (you can download a full resolution image from our press FTP):
The Halloween event will run through the end of October and into the first week of November, so there'll be plenty of opportunities to take on the challenge and learn what's behind this new, dark threat to The Secret World.
Halloween will offer several missions which set off a brand new storyline and a brand new villain, both of which we'll get back to further down the road.
In addition to fresh content, such as new locations and monsters, our Halloween event also brings with it tricks, treats, cool new costumes and special pets.
But, of course, that's not all we're bringing to you with Issue #3. There are also several new missions available right now:
'The Binding', which brings you to the City of the Sun God in Egypt to learn more about the Seven Sentinels. This truly epic investigation mission is definitely one of the most challenging and extensive in The Secret World and will offer even the most hardened puzzle solvers a run for their money.
The werewolf Traian gets a brand new action mission in the Carpathian Fangs. 'Dogs of War' plays on the mounting conflict between the vampires and their allies. Use your wits and battle prowess to instigate a war between the werewolves and the vampires, and exploit the ensuing chaos to defeat enemy commanders.
We are continuing our updating of Lairs in this Issue. We are adding a full set of Lair missions; to let the process of gathering up the last few pieces you need to finalize those patterns go even smoother. Besides there will be several more updates to Lairs in the near future.
In the coming weeks you should also look forward new outfits available in the in-game store and a completely new awesome pet with a jet pack on its back!
