The Secret World‘s first monthly content update Unleashed hit this morning, bringing with it several new missions and dungeon modes as well as the new Marketplace and some new additions to the hub cities.
As of 7am EST/4am PST, the servers were brought down to implement the update. The servers are now back up and as expected there is a nice list of changes and additions made to the game.
This isn’t just good news for TSW fans but also for anyone who may have been wanting to try out TSW but hasn’t had the chance, because Unleashed has arrived just in time for the upcoming month anniversary celebration.
For those of you who may have missed that announcement, The Secret World team is holding a special event this weekend to celebrate the first month of fighting to save the world from the things we didn’t know really existed. During this event anyone who has any kind of TSW account — that includes early access, inactive, beta or even one you make today — will be able to join the game.
The weekend event starts at 4pm GMT (11am EST/8am PST) on August 3rd and ends on August 6th at 7am GMT (2am EST/11pm PST Aug 5th).
Aside from getting a peek at the new content, players will also be given the opportunity to win bonus points and a special in game shirt for completing missions. The number you’ll need to complete to get those items is 30, so be prepared to do some serious investigating.
As an added bonus, all players will be given 15 fireworks for free to use during the festivities.
So if you don’t have an account, go ahead and sign up. And be sure to check out the special leader board that will show the top 100 most dedicated mission solvers in TSW.
And as always, if you’re playing this weekend — or get to experience the new content today — let us know what you think.
