The Secret World livestream teases new PvP minigame, Issue 13

Today’s Secret World dev stream may not have delved deeply into details, but it did tease some upcoming content players can look forward to. Issue #13 is bringing a brand-new, self-contained story like Issues #5, 6, and 7; set in Kaidan, it introduces a new NPC and fleshes out other familiar faces in the city.  Coming alongside Issue #13 — but not in it — are a string of PvP updates. Not only are El Dorado and Stonehenge getting some love and new rewards, but an entirely new PvP minigame was teased. Soon players will be able to duke it out on the snowy slopes of Shambala.

Also revealed on the stream were the new Lucky Bags, called Professional’s Satchel. Going live next week, these contain the chance for nurse, policeman, and fireman outfits as well as a police motorcycle and a police or fire dog. If that motorcycle isn’t your thing, some current sprints are getting updated by adding custom jumps. Or you might be interested in the upcoming new holiday event bags which will feature a brand new mount type. And speaking of the holiday events, there won’t be any new missions for Christmas 2015 as the team is focused on getting Issue #13 completed. All previous events, however, will return.

At the closing of the stream, all players were invited to come to the test live server to help test the dungeon finders with devs; folks who end up on a dev team will get a special, exclusive T-Shirt reward. Check out the reward, some of the new outfits, and the concept for the new PvP zone in the images below.

kimowar TheKingInYellow It only seems expensive because they aren’t stealth-withdrawing the funds from your bank account. Well… they will if you subscribe, but not if you buy a-la carte.

So story and new missions in 13? Good. Glad to hear the rumors it was an entirely PvP focused issue weren’t true. Didn’t pick up 12 due to just dungeons, but I’ll be picking up 13 now.

mbbrazen  Best I recall it was originally intended to be a pvp zone. Definitely a good looking zone.

I don’t PvP but Shamballa is so beautiful I might just have to get a PvP build to get back in there. The brief time we got to see it (in a completely hard faction mission!) I thought it was stunning.  Hopefully the mim game will be of sufficient quality to match the surroundings.

They also teased a Kaidan lair, a Kaidan scenario, more scenario types and a new Aux weapon in the past. Just saying …

Not getting a new christmas mission is somewhat of a letdown too. Last years “Mozart & the freemasons conspiracy” themed mission was as excellent one. At least we get to play that again :)

I was hoping that if they added a new PvP map it’d be Shamballa. It was apparently originally designed as one and it’s just a beautiful map that’s only used in one mission. Really a shame.

Its great to see that despite all shit that universer is constantly throwing at Funcom this game is still alive and kicking. Its very unique. I played it some time ago and i own all issues up to Tokyo. I will definitely return after they amass bigger pile of content and when there will be another Steam Sale with some bulk promo. (sadly i think buying DLC separately is definitely too expensive).

For me, PvP was always the ‘mini-game’.
