The Secret World

Post by Guest on Fri Jan 25, 2013 11:47 pm

If anyone wants to join me, I'm:
-Maeloda, Illuminati, currently pistol/elementalism, main
-Maelady, Templar, sword/chaos, alt I play to keep around boyfriend's level

Both characters are on Arcadia (RP) dimension, but technically people can group and guild across the whole game. Game is B2P ($10-30 depending on sale), with cosmetic and convenience cash shop, as well as DLC that they will bundle and make free over time.

Guilds are faction only, so you'd have to all go Illuminati in order to be in the same one. Something tells me that 'blue' doesn't fit this group :P
(Though we could easily add each other to friends lists and group, and make a custom chat channel/voice chat program channel)





Any questions? Post here!

Also, the soundtrack is ace, especially for an MMO: http://youtu.be/oS_RERg9L1whttp://youtu.be/oS_RERg9L1w

EDIT: This game is suggested to Indoc Theorst forum specifically because it carries the same attention to story detail and theorizing that we tend to think Bioware is doing with Mass Effect.

Frankly, it satisfies the indoc theorist in me while waiting for DLC, so I don't go nuts about ME3 in the meantime. I mean this in the very best way. Hope I see some of you there!

(PS: Try to have good computer. Not so good on lower settings)

A little fun in anticipation of the next 'Issue', which will contain a DLC for Egypt that rewards a whip weapon and will almost certainly be 'Indiana Jones' themed sunny

New content coming! http://www.thesecretworld.com/news/issue_6_cover_and_preview

The darkness in Egypt is ancient and its malevolent tendrils work tirelessly to spread their influence across the world. Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo, will call upon you to contain this dire threat once again.

In this update you will play through a new, deep and revealing story within Egypt. Travel back in time to unearth powerful artifacts which can help you in the future, and see how the wondrous locations of The Scorched Desert looked in ages past.

Enjoy the Issue #6 cover here, and read more details about the upcoming content below.

The cultists and their dark prophet Abdel Daoud are working in the shadows under the influence of their god Aten. The Atenists seek to undermine and weaken the tireless Marya who bravely stand against them. You must come to their aid and free some of their captured warriors.

The enigmatic undead weapons dealer Said can also offer invaluable advice and guidance on how to best work against the cultists. Uncover the ultimate purpose of the Atenists and their prophet to see the true danger they present to the world.

Be sure not miss the climactic end fight on top of the train to Cairo, where you must stop its lethal cargo!

In addition to the many missions in the new story line, and their side missions which can be taken to gain powerful rewards, Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo, also offers the new and unique Whip Auxilliary weapon.

The vicious Whip can be used for great area damage, but also for buffing your team or sneaky crowd control. Use the Whip to encourage your team mates to run faster or snare tricky opponents and pull them towards you.

A new presence will also make itself known in Issue #6. The veil between worlds is tearing from two sides. Both the adventurous players, ever searching for new challenges, and the ominous powers beyond our dimension, ever looking for access to our world, have long been spoiling for a fight.

The most rare and powerful patterns found in Lairs can now be utilized to instigate an epic confrontation with an immense foe. Gather in groups of ten to take on this devastating Raid size adversary in a titanic struggle in a shrouded location somewhere in the South Pacific. The battle is surely a trap, but will you bite with Jaws of Steel?

But that is not all you get in Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo. A new Veteran and Recruitment system will become available. For each month you are or have been a member you receive points which can buy unique rewards. Every new person recruited also gives you an amount of points equal to a month of Membership.

A completely new ranking system will also be introduced to Player-versus-player combat. You gain PVP experience points and eventually ranks when you or your team kills other players. As you go up in ranks you are awarded with new tokens, which can be used to buy fresh PVP uniforms.

Check out the full size screenshots from the upcoming content in Issue #6 here.

Issue #6; The Last Train to Cairo is scheduled for release in the beginning of March. Members will get two days early access to the new content in Issue #6.

That's, probably, the best MMO I've played. Without levels, or specific classes, and very focused on the roleplaying, with investigation... It's really a nice game.

And the community is admirable, an example for every community out there. Nice, polited peolpe, who helps the newbies

Oh, and in two months FunCom will release the new content, a new urban zone, Tokyo :).

Um, two months? I don't think that's confirmed at all.

March = Issue #6, Egypt DLC

March-May = Issue #7, Transylvania DLC

April-June = Issue #8, Feature patch

Issue #9-11 --> Tokyo related.

So Tokyo is more on track for this early summer, at best.

Well, two months in theory. FunCom (again in theory XD) should make Issues monthly (that's what they say, but... It's not always true). So, if they actually make it monthly, yeah, two-three months. In may-june. If not, July-August.

Anyway, great news :)

They've already pushed aside their Monthly Issues rule. It's not even a factor anymore. They'll TRY to do monthly, but it just won't happen sometimes.

And even if they got monthly, Tokyo's not coming until May, at earliest, like you said.

It's far more likely to be middle-to-end of summer, and they'll spend the Fall adding to it and the game overall, and then if all goes well (when does it ever when them, though?), the second new zone by end of December.
