It’s finally here. The Secret World is having their first beta weekend event. Starting this Friday at 9am PST, the event will run through Sunday May 13 at 11:59pm PST.
For those who are wondering, access is only guaranteed to those who pre-ordered the game, achieved Secret Agent rank in The Secret War, or managed to snag keys at PAX East. However, Funcom has teamed up with GameSpot for an exclusive giveaway. So, if you don’t want to buy the game now, you can go check out the giveaway on their site.
Some people may have also gotten invites from Funcom for the closed beta phase of the game. Please note: this is not the same event and there are a few distinct differences –this is important for any of you who are planning on streaming.
The important things to note will be that the open beta will be limited to the times mentioned above. It will also only allow participants to play as Templar for this event and will restrict players to the areas of London and Kingsmouth — that creepy little New England town that looks like it popped out of a Stephen King movie.
I can’t wait for this. Thanks for planning my weekend for me Funcom.
