Joel Bylos Teases TSW's Issue #5 Details

Posted Fri, Nov 23, 2012 by Martuk

Funcom hasn’t been wasting any time adding new content to The Secret World (TSW) over the last couple of months. With Issue #4 now fully live, Game Director Joel Bylos took some time in his latest missive to reflect on the latest content and the Halloween event.

The juiciest part of Bylos’ update takes aim at the upcoming Issue #5 update and the next event. Issue #5 will be an experiment of sorts and include a single, larger story arc featuring several missions centered around a single character to discover the fate of Tyler Freeborn, a conspiracy theorist within the game. Issue #5 will also see the addition of a new Auxiliary weapon, new Investigation missions and more.

The last thing Bylos touched on is the Christmas/Winter event, which he notes will have nothing to do with either.

"Okay... one more thing. I know people are eagerly awaiting the "Christmas" event and there is rampant speculation about what it will be. Time to fuel that fire."

My money is on the Mayan end of the world prophecy of December 21st, 2012. How can you not take advantage of that?
