The Secret World Celebrates First Year
In an address to the players of The Secret World, Game Director, and all around awesome guy Joel Bylos looked back at the year behind and looked forward, to what will come. Including an all new event called Guardians of the Gaia. From July 3rd massive creatures formed by primal elements will come alive throughout the world. These creatures can only be defeated by working together, and those lucky enough to bring one down will be able to capture a small portion of its essence, earning a Guardian of their own. There will also be a 30% discount across most of the store, new bonuses every day, and a little extra for Members and Grandmasters. Last but not least, anyone who has ever played any Funcom title is invited to check out TSW for free for an entire week. And as soon as the Anniversary fun is done, they’ll be jumping straight into Issue #7, A Dream To Kill.
