The Secret World Goes Indy in Issue 6
The Secret World Director, Joel Bylos revealed a few details on the upcoming Issue 6 update. It will mostly take place inEgypt, bringing back some fan favorite characters including Said and Nassir. And then there’s the whip auxiliary weapon. If we don’t see a hat and far too many snakes (and Nazis) I’ll be somewhat disappointed. Right up until I get my first whip power, then I won’t care. The first vet rewards will also be released, and Grandmaster account holders will get access to the DLC 48 hours before anyone else.
SMITE Enters Open Beta
Funcom on the Move
The Funcom developers working on Age of Conan, The Secret World, and Anarchy Online will all be making a move to the Raleigh,North Carolina offices which previously only held billing and customer service. This allows the development teams from all three games to be in one central location instead of spread across the world as they are now.
