The Secret World reveals the housing-esque Museum of the Occult
After hinting about a new Secret World feature with the monster T-shirt contest and letting players speculate for a week, devs finally revealed their plans during the latest Streaming Ones episode. Called the Museum of the Occult, this new feature is an interesting mix of almost-housing and the long-ago mentioned bestiary. Basically, each player is given the task to repopulate the now empty museum that sits in London. The right to display creatures is earned through collecting lore, kill achievements, and exploration, and different levels of display pedestals allow for different poses. With these poses, players will be able to customize their personal museum space, then invite their friends to come on in and admire it!
The livestream also touched on the upcoming Fusang improvements that are expected to hit the test server next week. These include changing to one offensive and one defensive kill mission to pull people into battle in the facilities, adding dynamic events (like supply drops) as an incentive to run outside of the facilities, and new minigames to keep people engaged. Also introduced was the new elite vulnerability system, where weapon type will determine what type of debuff a player can add to the target that will benefit group members. All the juicy details are available in the full episode below.
