The Secret World: Latest Game Director's Letter Details Issues 8 & 9

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The latest Secret World Game Director's letter has been published on the official site. In it, plans for both Issue 8 and Issue 9 are revealed, including the new Augment and Scenario systems. Scenarios will challenge players who think they've "been there, done that" and will come in Normal, Elite and Hardcore modes with accompanying rewards.

I had a chance to test the most recent iteration of the scenario system and I was incredibly pleased with how it is coming along. There was a moment when my character, attempting to herd survivors into the Hotel Wahid, was caught out by a sandstorm which swept in: reducing visibility in the entire area and damaging my character. I was forced to find cover to survive, but the survivors I was escorting weren’t so lucky!

The random elements create a powerful difference in the experience and force you to adapt strategies on the fly. During one game, half of the survivors I was protecting revealed themselves as cultists and began slaughtering the rest. Not knowing exactly what is going to happen creates a level of challenge for even experienced groups.

There is much, much more to read so head to The Secret World's site to check it out.

    Sounds like a lot of survivors are not going to survive.

    I have an entitlement delusion - because I have this strange idea that my 50$ should have the same value as anyone else's 50$
    "Your account is not entitled to the same value as a new account. Just saying you are entitled to the same as someone else because you said so is exactly what expresses your entitlement issues."

    i hit ctrl + f  and searched for pvp ... nothing came up, I closed the browser window ... maybe next time you'll talk me into reinstalling the game secret world, but probably not.

    i havent finished issue #7 yet as i was side tracked with dead island series now heading back to it!

    I never mind how long this game takes on their issues because this game is so brilliant and so much content to explore all the time.

    glad to see new agent missions coming and it looks like ctheyre gonna amp up the combat -as if the gatekeeper was sooo easy!!

    just glad i can do these new things in normal mode!

    Dang that sounds cool. It was just my pve side decided it couldn't live without pvp :((( It's been long enough I could maybe casually restart, maybe play different. Treat the game like a weekend interactive movie? No new game of thrones episodes, hmmm. TSW is written better than most movies. image

    What are you talking about Vinterkrig?  The game has pvp.  Is it the best, no, but typical for an MMO.  Just watch out for the glance tanks, healtanks, etc.  All three versions can be fun if you want total chaos.

    Its Buy to play.


    So, you have to buy the game to play the game but you also have to buy each Issue separately, I think they are around $9.

    You'd possibly be interested in this forum thread that was posted yesterday.  It's an update on the state of PvP and discusses their future plans for it as well.  It's kind of a bad news/good news sort of thing mostly.

    If they do not remove that silly 7 buttons limit I'm not coming back. And know few more that do not like button mashers. Otherwise I'm really sorry because I started to like game. But maybe we are in minority so nobody will miss us. :-))
