The Secret World “Issue #1″ Update Today, and Free Access For Your Friends This Weekend

TSW Issue1

Servers are coming down Tuesday morning, July 31st in preparation for the launch of The Secret World’s first montly content update, Issue #1 “Unleashed”.

This update is bringing a sizable chunk of new content to the game including lots of new missions, new Nightmare Mode dungeons, and more.

Funcom has also announced that in celebration of The Secret World’s first month, your friends will be able to share in your adventures with free access beginning on Friday August 3rd and running through Sunday August 6th. You can sign up to participate in this weekend’s event by heading over to the official site, and filling out the Celebration Sign Up box on the right hand side.

Here’s a rundown of the new content coming today:


  • Carter Unleashed: An action mission set at the Innsmouth Academy on Solomon Island, where the player gets to know more about the exceptionally gifted student Carter. Exploring the hallway below the academy, Carter will need help controlling her powers — before they get completely out of hand.
  • Crime and Punishment: Bestselling horror author Sam Krieg came to Solomon Island to write his latest novel — but there’s more to it than that. Through this investigation, the player will dig into Krieg’s works and the mind of an obsessed fan to learn more about the dark and hidden history of Solomon Island.
  • Hell & Bach: Daredevil reporter Daniel Bach is working on the story of all stories, his shot at finally winning a Pulitzer. For years, he’s been chasing the ghost of Theodore Wicker, only to end up trapped at the Overlook Motel outside Kingsmouth Town. But Wicker’s story doesn’t end here — nor did it start here. Following the bread crumbs back in time, the player will investigate the mystery of Wicker, and learn more about what brought him to the gates of hell…and beyond.
  • Funeral Crasher: Eleanor Franklin only has her cats and her ghosts to keep her company at her mansion in Blue Mountain — and now the ghosts are getting restless. When the dead themselves are spooked, the living must pay heed.
  • The 3rd Age: There have been Ages before ours, and the evidence lies beneath. In Egypt, the sand is thin, and the remnants of past Ages are beginning to spread their influence across the world. The Seven Sentinels hold the key to an investigation that begins in the present, and delves deep into the distant past.
  • Red Handed: It wasn’t chance that brought Dr Varias to this distant part of the Carpathians at this particular point in time. Following in his father’s footsteps, Varias is attempting to unravel the mystery of the Red Hand. Why did they build a vast facility beneath this desolate region? What were they doing here? And how was Varias’ father involved? In this investigation, we answer some burning questions about this secret Soviet era genetic research project — and how it ties into the events of the present.

But that’s not all! Another mission awaits observant players on Solomon Island — one that explores a character that may be more than she pretends to be…


Two dungeons are receiving new Nightmare modes: The Ankh and Hell Fallen.

Increased challenges, increased rewards, and a chance to test new builds, new synergies and to put your team to the test against some of the toughest and fiercest challenges in The Secret World!

Who will be the first to conquer The Ankh and Hell Fallen in Nightmare mode? When ‘Unleashed’ is unleashed, we will find out!


Unleashed also contains the brand new, cross-dimensional Marketplace, allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter where they’re playing. The Marketplace will be an integral part of The Secret World’s growing economy, giving players more flexibility when it comes to how they equip their characters, and how they procure PAX.


Of course, issue #1 is jam-packed with other updates and changes — and astute players may even notice the ongoing construction in New York, London and Seoul, as new tenants prepare to move in. The Secret World is a LIVING world, and it will keep growing and changing through this issue and all upcoming, monthly issues.


And this is only the beginning. Issue #2 is already on its way, and if you like this month’s content, you’re going to LOVE what’s next! Dr Aldini is sharpening his scalpels, the Ockham triplets are readying their scissors and razors, and the first auxiliary weapon is being assembled — so stay tuned for August’s major update, to be revealed soon!


The Secret World issue #1: ‘Unleashed’ goes live on July 31st, and is available for free to all players.

    choosing the cash flow values of an asset within the future and discounting it on
    the present. The significance of their role continues to be missed like other critical components in our economic issues.

    but in addition a terrific video player. If you’re a novice to playing poker online or not used to poker period, then what’s
    a greater way to obtain a feel for your game compared to playing with
    free poker money.

    There are several criteria to judge the quality of treatment and minimization of side effects.

  20. Sex Roulette rooms supply you with a lot of space for camouflage and this is not a direct license if
    you are obnoxious. Area five – Russia (alright,
    previous Russia), Eastern Europe, India, nearly all of Africa, North Korea,
    Mongolia. Hours and hours use, chores aren’t getting done, children and spouse are neglected, books go unread, the glory of the sound of music is muted.
    Some ADDers have seen the negative impact of ADD on social adjustment.
