Funcom announced today that Dawn of the Morninglight, the first expansion update for Funcom’s shared-world RPG Secret World Legends, is now available. This expansion is fully free to play, meaning that gamers can download the base game with the new story expansion now and play for free.
Dawn of the Morninglight adds another region to the already impressive roster of real-world locations in Secret World Legends. In addition to visiting New England, Egypt, Transylvania, and Tokyo, players can now jump on a plane and head to South Africa where the Morninglight, a cult that prides itself as being the “fastest growing spiritual movement in history”, has set up shop. Your job? Infiltrate them, rise within their ranks, and uncover the cult’s sinister truth.
This free story expansion presents the continuation of Secret World Legend’s story set after the events of Kaidan and players’ recent ascent through the Orochi Tower. Those who have completed the Tokyo storyline will finally see their story continue.
Producer Josh Mills said:
“We’ve been saying ‘to be continued’ for quite some time now. Finally, here it is, this is where it continues. We have introduced hours of new and fully voice-acted missions, new characters, new cutscenes, new monsters, and of course tons of new loot to discover. Secret World Legends has always been about digging into local folklore and urban legends, from the vampires of Transylvania to the Lovecraftian horrors of New England, and this time we have had the opportunity to take inspiration from the rich folklore of South Africa. Players have a lot to look forward to!”
