If you’ve been waiting for a really good deal to check out The Secret World, it doesn’t get much better than this! Now you can dip your feet into the Filth for free; Funcom has implemented a free 10-day trial. That’s 10 days of secret societies to explore, conspiracies to unravel, mysteries to solve, and spooky ambiance to soak up.
If you already have the game, you might be interested in the other news Game Director Romain Amiel announced during today’s Streaming Ones dev livestream — Issue #15 is coming in “a couple of weeks.” Yes, that was fast! All three Sidestories are being bundled together into an issue, and a whole new investigation mission is being tossed in to create The Sleuth’s Gallery. Amiel explained previously that the format of Sidestories didn’t go over as well with players as hoped, and many skipped them thinking that they weren’t a part of the story. Since the team is no longer making Sidestories, bundling them in a more recognizable format makes sense.
The best part is that any players who purchased any or all of the Sidestories previously — Further Analysis, Love & Loathing, and/or The Last Pagan — will receive Issue #15 for free when it releases. And like all other issues, any of those folks who want the special outfit that comes with the collectors edition just needs to just pay the difference between the two versions. We let you know when there’s more info, but for now you can enjoy the new cover art below.
