    Surprise! The Secret World's Issue #10 out, and while it's true that Massively's MJ got a sneak peek, she's itching to explore the new area on her own. If you're hoping to avoid story mission spoilers, don't worry: This trip is all about scouting out the lay of the land. (And quite possibly just to find as much lore as possible!) Besides the infamous Love Hotel, what new sights are there to behold? What death lurks behind which corner? Join us live at 9:00 p.m. to see!

    The Secret World : Issue 10 Nightmare in the Dream Palace Preview

    Posted Dec 05, 2014


    The Secret World issue 10: Nightmare in the Dream Palace is live, and we recently had the chance to run around the other side of Tokyo in a look at the brand new content. When we last left issue 9, there had been a huge explosion that conveniently reduced the quarantine wall that had been blocking off one side of Tokyo from the other, to more of an inconvenience than an obstacle. Issue 9 worked to lay down the foundations of new systems and new strategies, specifically having to do with Aegis.

    The Secret World nerfs Tokyo mobs and buffs rewards

    Players struggling to progress through The Secret World's Tokyo zone will now find it a more pleasurable experience, thanks to today's hotfix that makes mobs easier to kill while increasing rewards across the board.

    Mobs in Kaidan will now have reduced damage and health, making them easier to kill. Better yet, TSW is increasing AEGIS XP from containers, lowering the cost for memory expansion modules, and giving AEGIS peripherals as part of the Issue 9 and 10 story missions (and will retroactively award these to players who have completed them).

    [Thanks to Tyler for the tip!]

    The Secret World game director Joel Bylos has penned an end-of-the-year/beginning-of-the-year producer's letter. The first half of his post serves as a tidy summary of TSW's content releases in 2014, while the second half focuses on how Funcom will complete the Tokyo storyline, improve the new player experience, and release new multiplayer content over the course of 2015.

    "There is a significant backlog of planned Tokyo content that we need to evaluate," Bylos explains. "We have material for a few more side stories as well as a new scenario map, auxiliary weapon, and lair content."

    The Secret World adds four side missions and two rare bosses

    January 13, 2016 Justin Olivetti 6 Comments
    [​IMG]




    Update 13.1 has landed with an ominous thud in the middle of The Secret World’s Kaidan, and players can only shudder at what unholy visions they will see when the patcher gets to 100%.


    The first small patch for Issue #13 adds some more content to the game in the form of four side missions in Tokyo: “Furious Road,” “Pieces of Jack,” “The Corpse and the Key,” and “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit Jung.” The patch also includes two rare bosses in the area and several bug fixes and balance tweaks.
    The Secret World and its single-player spin-off The Park are both on sale this week on Steam.

    The Secret World vows to put more mobility in combat

    January 15, 2016 18 Comments
    [​IMG]
    An unpopular change to one of The Secret World’s ranged abilities in the last patch might end up benefiting the game’s population as a whole.
    Lead Designer Romain Amiel wrote a post yesterday acknowledging that the new required cast time (or “snare”) for anima shot and other builders hasn’t gone over so well, despite it being a move to give ranged attacks a small drawback in comparison to melee. Ultimately, he said that the discussion got the team to meet together and agree that movement should be freed up as much as possible instead of hindered.
    “In the very near future, we will be removing the casting snare effect from every builder!” Amiel announced. “Additionally, all melee dashes and charges will have their cooldown reduced, to allow melee characters to get in the action faster, both in PvE and PvP.”Read More

    MassivelyOP’s MJ has taken a break from Issue #13 in order to gorge herself silly on AP and items during the latest Gilded Rage event. What has her grinding her heart out? The chance for a variety of golden goodies, of course! There are tons of cosmetics and even some pets that are only available through tonight, so if MJ wants them, she’s going to have to hurry. She already got one epic item in her first bag; tune in live at 8:00 p.m. and find out if her luck holds out, or join her in-game to get your own goodies. One viewer will even win a free 30-day trial key!

    Tomorrow’s The Secret World patch adds new PvP scenario, new group finder

    January 27, 2016 23 Comments
    [​IMG]




    Ready to quite literally fight to be king of the mountain? The Secret World‘s Shambala scenario tasks players with doing precisely that with a new style of PvP match. After extensive testing, said scenario is ready for prime time and will be deployed with a patch tomorrow. It’s important to note that this is completely free, so as long as you own the game, you can jump right in and start enjoying what the new PvP style has to offer.




    Do you prefer to work with your fellow players rather than against them? That’s fine too because this patch is also adding in the group finder functionality. Now you can just queue and go into one of the game’s dungeons without so much as a by-your-leave. Any way you slice it, it’ll be easier tomorrow to sit down and get in some play time with your fellow players.

    The Secret World’s new membership rewards launch tomorrow

    February 8, 2016 47 Comments
    [​IMG]


    Game Director Romain “Tilty” Amiel has just informed MassivelyOP that The Secret World’s new membership reward system will be launching tomorrow, February 9th. That means that subscribed players will receive their reward goodies depending on which tier of membership they’ve paid for, from 30 days all the way to Grand Master. Those who are still debating on whether or not they want to purchase the GM pack (and get all the goodies up to the one year tier delivered immediately) have only until tomorrow to decide before the pack disappears forever.




    Amiel also announced that the Valentine’s Day item store update will also launch at the same time, so if you are in the mood for love — or you just want that dance that you missed last year — you’ll have that chance.

    Chaos Theory: In The Secret World, membership has its benefits

    February 12, 2016 33 Comments
    [​IMG]


    By now, you’ve probably heard me mention a time or three that The Secret World overhauled its membership benefits and loyalty rewards. As a TSW fan, I was very excited to see these changes heading our way; I am totally in favor of getting more bang for your buck, and the new system is meant to deliver just that.


    As a Grandmaster myself, I couldn’t wait to log in and get my hands on all my cool new goodies. Bring on the bling! It all sounded pretty dang cool on paper, and anything that brings in more players and makes current ones happier is a total win/win. But we all know things don’t always go as planned. Now that the new system has launched, how did it play out in practice? Here’s a look at the good, the bad, and the golden.

    Chaos Theory: Tomb-raiding The Secret World’s Issue #14 with Funcom

    March 31, 2016 39 Comments
    [​IMG]




    Remember that Indiana Jones-inspired outfit from The Secret World’s Issue #6? Today is a great day to dust it off and slip it on because Issue #14’s release returns us to the tomb-raiding life, complete with temples and doom!




    Called Call of the Nameless, this newest adventure not only returns to Egypt but returns to the epic self-contained story line style found in Issues #5 through 7. There is little argument that those issues are some of the best storytelling in TSW and encapsulate the heart of the game, and it is precisely this that Game Director Romain Amiel wanted to return to.




    So how does Call of the Nameless measure up to to the likes of The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn? Is it dark? Oh, yes — it is quite literally dark. Does it have story? Yes — it even has a literal story. Although I haven’t experienced the full thing (that’s saved for my OPTV stream series starting tonight at 9:00 p.m. EDT!), I did get a decent taste of the story, the atmosphere, and the mechanics during yesterday’s tour with Amiel and Community Manager Andy Benditt. And yes, I am hungry for more. Read on for my impressions of Issue #14 before it launches today, sans significant spoilers.

    Last time in The Secret World, MassivelyOP’s MJ investigated the Aten cultists and their drilling to try to discover the cause of the earthquakes in Agartha.



    However, the cultists weren’t the culprits, so now the wizened statues are sending her to talk to the human-hating Jinn. Yah – that’s going to go over well. Join us live at 9:00 p.m. as MJ continues the Issue #14 adventures by appealing to the elementals. Warning: Total and complete spoilers ahead!
