In just over two months after launching The Secret World, the development team has already delivered two major content updates for the myths, legends and conspiracy themed MMO. These updates are part of a post-launch content plan aimed at serving subscribers with new content to explore. ‘Issue #3’ has already been in development for some time and the content of this update will be revealed later this week.
Here is an overview of some of the content and features of Issue #2: Digging Deeper:
New Game Systems - The first of many completely new Auxiliary Weapons – the Rocket Launcher – is now available. Players can acquire the Rocket Launcher through a special new mission and upgrade it as they defeat greater and greater challenges in the game. This also means the introduction of the new Auxiliary Wheel, where players can develop new abilities for the Auxiliary Weapons. In addition they have gotten an extra active and passive ability slot to take advantage of their newfound power.
New Content - Issue #2: Digging Deeper offers plenty of new content for players to enjoy. With four new Investigation missions and an Action mission there is plenty of new stuff to do. But that is just the beginning; all Lairs in the game have been revamped, receiving a mission each - with much more to come! All of them now also offer increased rewards to the persevering players who hunt in these dangerous areas. Two new Nightmare dungeons have become available, The Facility and Hell Eternal, and these extreme challenges will give even the most experienced dungeon crawlers the fight of their life.
New Opportunities - Players are now be able to visit a barber shop, Ockham’s Razor, and a plastic surgeon, the Modern Prometheus, to alter their appearance as they see fit, with a host of new options for looks and hairstyles. A completely new Group Finder tool is another fresh feature included with ‘Issue #2: Digging Deeper’. With this tool players can easily team up with anyone, from any Dimension anywhere in the world, and play together in any dungeon or playfield throughout The Secret World.
