Funcom will be launching a new "cosmic horror game" called Moons of Madness at Halloween this year. While cool in and of itself, it's also got a nifty tie in to Secret World Legends.

Moons of Madness will be out for PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC in October.
From today through March 27th, Secret World Legends players can take part in the seasonal mini event called Envoys of Avalon.

Players will "travel the world and unravel the Numbers Station phenomenon".

Every time players launch the scenario, they can begin where they left off due to the infinite scaling.
