The Dragon is perhaps the most mysterious of the three in-game secret societies; based in Seoul, the focus of the Dragon is to orchestrate change through chaos. Throughout the week Funcom will reveal something new about the Dragon secret society, ranging from articles, artwork, screenshots, video and an exclusive Q&A session hosted on the official  ‘The Secret World’ Facebook page . These exclusive items will be available on select media sites, as well as on ‘ The Secret World’ official website. 

“Revealing new things about the Dragon is exciting for us, as the very nature of the Dragon is to stay hidden and create chaos behind the scenes to reach their ultimate goal,” Says Ragnar Tørnquist, Senior Producer and Director for  ‘The Secret World’. “Not only is this a great opportunity to shed some light on the Dragon, but for a huge number of people who have already joined the Dragon through our initiation test, it’s an opportunity to find out more about their chosen secret society.” 

Funcom kicks off the Week of the Dragon by releasing six new exclusive screenshots. The can be found on the  Funcom FTP and on the  website.
