Upcoming Content & Bylos Moving to "New Initiative"

Upcoming Content & Bylos Moving to "New Initiative" -

Funcom's Joel Bylos has penned what may be one of his last Game Director's Letters for The Secret World. In it, he mentions that he will be moving on to a "new initiative" within Funcom. Bylos does not offer any further details but does mention that it will require his full focus and, as a result, he will be (and has been) handing off many of his TSW duties to others on the team.

Prior to that, Bylos lets players in on what the TSW group has been working on and what can be expected to work its way into game in the near future.

First off, the Enhanced Player Experience is working its way on to the Testlive server so players can check out the changes made to Elite Abilities. According to Bylos, those changes include more effects and a sincere effort to make them more powerful. In addition, Elite Abilities that have seemingly been underused, will be given a new location on the player hotbar in an effort to bring them into wider usage.

Lastly, Bylos writes about Issue 11, the Orochi Tower and how this content will bring the Tokyo storyline to its conclusion. Players will learn much more about the Orochi Corporation and will run into some old friends as well as meet up with faction contacts.

As of this writing, the Enhanced Player Experience will be released to live servers first with Issue 11 to follow.

Read the entire letter on The Secret World site.
