Halloween Comes to The Secret World, New Video Available

The team at Funcom is excited to announce the very first seasonal event for the company's recently launched modern-day massively multiplayer online game  'The Secret World'. The event went live on the game servers today and include an all new storyline, new characters and even a special secret society competition that players can take part in.

For a massively multiplayer online game based on myths, legends and mysteries many would say that Halloween is  The Secret World's Christmas. As such the developers have pulled out all the stops to make sure this is a seasonal event to be remembered!

The Halloween event is part of  Issue #3: The Cat God, the third content update in  The Secret World's ambitious post-launch update plan. Besides Issue #3, the team has already released two major content updates since launch in July, adding new weapons, missions, areas and all new gameplay mechanics to the game. With Issue #3 out the door, the team is already hard at work wrapping up  Issue #4: Big Trouble in the Big Apple which will include the first raid set in a monster-ridden New York City. The team remains fully committed to supplying  The Secret World's playerbase with fresh, exciting updates on a regular basis.

In the unique Halloween event which went live today, players must pursue a challenging storyline that will take them back to the wondrous Stonehenge where they must face off against the Cat God himself. Though everything is true, the truth is often not what it appears. The real truth is yours to discover. Of course, Halloween would be nothing without costumes, and in The Secret World players will not be able to dress up as a pretty princess, a pillaging pirate and much more with all new costumes available in-game.

Last but not least, the team has also put together a special, server-wide Halloween competition. All who take part in this special Halloween event will be rewarded and can earn unique costumes and pets, but you can get your hands on even more prizes as The Secret Societies themselves will face off in a competition for Halloween dominance.
