Last fall, devs asked The Secret World players to submit their most burning questions about the game, and then the community voted on which ones they wanted Lead Designer Romain “Tilty” Amiel to answer to most. The top five winners have now received their answers!
Tilty explained more about the Third Core Capacitor and Supernal Diode (they were “a part of a design for a very particular end-game quest chain,” which isn’t in-game yet) and plans for the AEGIS (namely, the introduction of more colors in some new locations).
If you’ve found yourself wishing that Seoul and New York were as feature-rich as London, don’t hold your breath. London was always meant to be the real hub for players old and new to congregate, though Agartha seemed to have stolen that title. However, while banks, barbers, and post offices won’t be appearing in those other two hubs, future features will be spread among all three faction hubs going forward.
Titly also explained the “Vault Data Access Authorization” perk: Players who reached the top rank in their factions were intended to receive access to faction vaults. However those vaults involve the Puzzle Raids that are not ready for release. Never fear — Tilty is considering other ways to grant access to the vaults early.
If you want more details on these answers, including one decision Tilty would have changed during development, check out the full post.
