Funcom is gearing up for anniversary festivities in two of its MMOs.
First up: Anarchy Online is turning 18. Feel old yet? “Beginning June 18th through July 9th, Ganimedes Personal Jetpack & Nano Crystal (Balloons) are available in the shop, and subscribers can also log in to pick up a Ganimedes Personal Jetpack MK II,” the studio says. Players can also expect the return of Loren Warr and The Tinker events. For folks on the progression server, there’s more in store:
“We’re happy to bring the level cap up to 200 and unleash Shadowlands during the anniversary! Level 200 on RK19 happens on June 26th, and Shadowlands opens the following day, on the 27th! Players on RK19 also have access to special daily login rewards, exclusive to the anniversary event – including special vanity gear on day 14!”
Secret World Legends, the festivities are a bit more of a stretch: Funcom is calling it the game’s second anniversary, referring to the relaunch, but of course The Secret World is actually turning seven in July. But hey, we’ll allow it, specifically because it’s called MEGAversary 2: Agarthan Boogaloo, which is so bad it’s looped around on itself and is now awesome. The studio is offering special daily event login rewards, special cache drops, new perma agents, a scavenger hunt, destructible piñatas, and the return of the Talos of Gaia.
“The Immaculate Machine gives you treats, sweetling. She excretes life into hulking husks of matter and energy! Discover and play with one of 11 Talos of Gaia through the event portals in Agartha. These golems will cycle in a fashion that will allow everyone to eventually see all 11 golems, even if you only have time to play for 1 boss fight per day. Defeating the Talos will allow you to open the Buzzing Hive, an extra item you get every day alongside event login rewards! Plus, the Talos have a chance at dropping items to fill out your Museum of the Occult!”
