The Secret World News

Latest Headlines for The Secret World

  • The Trouble with Item Stores

    Item Stores are a funny thing. Some people love them, some people hate them. They offer a players the opportunity to get new items, and often even new content. They help keep the world of the MMO you're in looking fresh. Or they can give you a boost to heal faster, or gain experience more quickly. The item store for The Secret World does all of this and more, and yet...there's something missing.

  • The Last Pagan Series of Missions Debuts

    The Secret World has a series of new missions for players in the just-released "Side Stories: The Last Pagan". The six missions are said to bring hours of new game play opportunities into TSW and, on completion, will reward players with a Deep Mystery Box and a spiffy teleport item called the "Lorenzian Fabricator".

  • Starting Over

    Now that convention season is coming to an end MMORPG is slowly getting back to the normal routine. This means we're back to our every other week schedule! And just in case you missed it I got to interview Joel Bylos about all things related to The Secret World. This of course happened before he released his August Game Director's letter which came out at the end of last week.

  • Joel Bylos on the Past, Present & Future of TSW

    Getting the opportunity to interview developers is one of the highlights of my career. Getting the chance to meet them in person is really the only step up from it. I've had the pleasure of not only interviewing The Secret World's Joel Bylos before but I also met him at Gamescom a few years ago. He is passionate about TSW, and loves a good joke. So when the anniversary for The Secret World was approaching I reached out to get an interview.

  • So You Don’t Like TSW? I Don’t Care

    Opinions are like...I'm not going to finish that sentence for the sake of the future of my career. But you know how it goes. And it seems a lot of people have opinions on The Secret World. In fact a lot of them are bad. So bad they bear repeating at least every two weeks. Or so they seem to think. So I'm going to break down a few of the ones I keep seeing over and over.

  • Bee Yourself

    While doing my regular forum browse on the official forums for The Secret World I came across someone who was looking for a roleplaying group. They laid out their character concept and called it boring. But I don't think it is boring, in fact I think it could possibly be one of the most interesting ideas out there. You see, his character is himself.

  • Two Years of TSW

    Two years of The Secret World. It hardly seems true. Though it is still a baby next to its Funcom brothers Age of Conan and Anarchy Online The Secret World has certainly had an exciting life so far. We've faced the end of the world while cowering in our basement, there has been controversy, there has been terror, there has been joy, and artists have been given freedom to run wild. All of this happening while the MMO is still learning to walk.

  • Investigate This

    I recently had the most meta experience of my entire gaming life. There I was, relaxing after the insanity of E3 and ready to settle into The Secret World's Tokyo. Then I learned, you need to earn access to get there. It makes sense, they don't want any noob to just wander in. So I started doing a bit of research. I had two options. The first and possibly most popular was to do scenarios. They aren't really my thing though, so I opted for the second way.

  • A Hands On Visit to Tokyo & What’s to Come

    As you might be aware, the game underwent some transition and the team became a smaller one. Yet the dedication to the promised content prevailed, and it is finally ready. We got a peek into the new content with Game Director Joel Bylos this week, who took us through what players can expect when they finally enter Tokyo.

  • Paying Tribute to the Redshirts

    As we enter the final stretch before Tokyo I'd like to pause for a moment to pay tribute to our favorite Redshirts, the Orochi. We will be heading straight to the heart of Orochi headquarters to find out what exactly happened. There is no doubt that we will meet many Orochi along the way. And maybe, just maybe one will survive. But we aren't going to hold our breath.

  • A Message from Kaidan

    While The Secret World's Tokyo expansion isn't ready to launch yet, the team hasn't forgotten how anxious its players are and have sent out a typically cryptic video called "A Message from Kaidan". Check it out and let us know what you think.

  • A TSW Wish List

    While we continue to wait for the moment when we can get into Tokyo I thought I would take a bit of time to skip ahead and look at things that would in my mind take The Secret World from fantastic to out of this world. These are all things that would keep people playing or improve the quality of life and could possibly be implemented post Tokyo. So in no particular order here are seven things I'd like to see introduced to TSW.

  • The Characters of Tokyo

    Fans of the lore behind Funcom's The Secret World will want to check out the new page dedicated to the characters that players will encounter, the movers and shakers, of Tokyo. These characters will be revealed in Issue #9: The Black Signal.

  • What to Wear in Case of a Demon Invasion

    Mankini gate is done and gone. However in all the coverage, there's never really been enough said for me about the in game store available to The Secret World players. I have choices to be making. Do I want to fight evil while dapper in a suit? Do I want to wear a pretty little off the shoulder number? Do I want to be a cosmonaut? Admittedly some of the choices are stranger than the others, but the choices remain.

  • What is TSW?

    Hot off the back of the mankini-gate scandal a discussion has been born asking what the IP of The Secret World actually is. How do you define something with such broad reaching strangeness? The discussion on the official forums has been going on for 19 pages now with everyone from fan to developer chiming in. Can there really be one solid definition of what The Secret World is? And do outfits like the Mankini and Sight for Sore Eyes really detract from the intellectual property?

  • Mankini-gate Explained

    The Secret World's Joel Bylos has taken to the official game forums to participate in a thread with specific regard to last week's April Fool's Joke where a "mankini" was being sold in the in-game shop. The mankini, a poke at gender equality and revealing outfits, created a veritable storm of indignation when the item was not only removed from the in-game shop, but also from players who had purchased it. In the letter, Bylos goes over the timeline of the issue and offers a word of apology.

  • Mankini-gate and More

    When I was considering the various topics I could cover for this week's TSW column I was faced with so many options I really didn't know where to start. First Joel announces new content, then there Mankini-gate, and finally there has been ARG activity. How could I pick just one? I couldn't. So we're breaking it down into four parts.

  • ARGs Are Back

    For many the first time they ever heard about The Secret World it was thanks to an ARG. Funcom spent years leading up to TSW with a series of ARGs meant to engage, entertain, and sometimes terrify. After the launch sadly ARGs were all but abandoned, with only two since July of 2012. Now the alternate reality games are getting a bit of a boost. Last week, on the 14th a new ARG started, dealing with Division 66.

  • Why Don't More People Play TSW?

    Go to any forums for MMOs and you will eventually find people bemoaning the fact that every MMO out there is the same. Maybe they use words like "WoW clone" or "copycat" but the idea is always the same, there just isn't enough variety in MMOs. And yes, the industry is filled with one fantasy game after another. But there are other games that get over looked. Whenever I see someone complaining all MMOs are the same I ask them, "What about The Secret World?"
