Today Funcom launched the first content update for The Secret World, bringing new experiences to the recently launched modern-day massively multiplayer online of myths, legends and conspiracies. The update, called Issue #1: Unleashed, is the first of many updates – or Issues – that are part of Funcom’s ambitious monthly update plan where the company will bring one major content update to the game once every month.
Issue #1: Unleashed introduces several new elements to the game, including several new investigation missions – Funcom’s unique and innovative take on MMO questing. Players will now also be able to use the marketplace, a brand new, cross-dimensional feature allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter what dimension they are playing on.
In addition, this weekend – from August 3rd at 4pm GMT until August 6th at 7am GMT – Funcom and all our players will be celebrating that The Secret World has been live for one whole month! During this time, ANYONE can register and try out The Secret World for FREE!
To fuel the celebrations this weekend, Funcom is also giving away in-game fireworks to everyone – up to 15 per character! And not only that, players will also be tasked with a special challenge this weekend: complete 30 in-game missions to help those in need and receive a special in-game t-shirt as well as 1200 bonus points that can be used in the in-game store! During the celebration weekend there will also be a special leaderboard showing the top 100 mission-solvers in the game!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
