The Secret World: Last Train to Cairo Previewed

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

A new post has cropped up on The Secret World's official site that brings Indiana Jones to mind. Players are given a hint to next month's update called "The Last Train to Cairo". The update will feature new main and side quests and a new weapon, the whip. Lastly, the final battle will take place atop a speeding train. If that doesn't scream Indiana Jones, nothing does!

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.

Read more about Issue 6 on The Secret World's site.

    Funcom and TSW does quest content better than anyone in the biz; this game is woefully underrepresented and praised.  Their last content release was amazing as well.

    Snakes.....why did it have to be snakes?

     

    >_>

     

    Just kidding     ^_^

     

    I think this sounds neat....this will be the fourth auxilery weapon......I just wonder what the other ones will be.

    Looks good :)

    Awesome only how many months late? How many more  months until next update? Worst lifetime purchase ever made SMH

    Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.

    Looks very good.  Love the Raiders of the Lost Ark look, with the whip.

    Definitely looking forward to it.

    So whatever happened to the monthly updates? They ever going to keep that promise?

    Read the official forums. They restructured all of Funcom's offices, consolidating personnel under one roof, so real life takes time to move xxx qty people together from the four corners of the world, they don't have access to Argatha portals (that we know of).

    They just had to release a ton of their staff, have a little common decency.

    They have been laying off since launch its no excuse, obviously they have no intention to keep their promise. Sad.

    They have been releasing staff since launch. They will be releasing more for failing to hold up to their promise of service.

    Instead of kvetching, do a little research, like I did.  Almost all studios release people once the game is released.   The people released are ones no longer needed; not because the studio is having financial problems.
