The wizards of mayhem and destruction at Funcom have been hard at work to bring you more great gaming. The Secret World — a wonderful new MMO full of myth, legend, and twisted conspiracies — is about to introduce the latest expansion, Issue #4: Big Trouble in the BigApple.
Arriving at the end of November, Big Trouble in the Big Apple, is a dream come true for anyone who has ever fantasized about fighting gigantic monsters in the streets of an abandoned, ravaged New York City. If that isn’t enough to make you happy, players will be able to journey into the hundreds of miles of tunnels under the city to face the evil lurking below. Only the bravest of the brave will summon the courage to enter the sewers and subways to battle the vilest creatures yet unveiled in The Secret World.
The expansion introduces an extremely challenging new 10 man raid. Players will face the immense horror behind the destruction of the once proud city and the legions of life draining minions at the beck and call of the beast. Enter The Manhattan Exclusion Zone with nine other fearless warriors and defeat the tentacled behemoth who hold sway over Times Square. Are you skilled enough to survive the battle and reap the rich rewards of this awesome new raid?
Many MMO’s would be content to offer a new raid for an expansion and call it a day, but not The Secret World. There is much more great gaming ahead in Issue #4: Big Trouble in the BigApple. Take a break from monster slaying and journey to London to stage you own theatrical presentation. Complete the twisted quests for a mad scientist and be rewarded with a gut ripping chainsaw weapon. Try the new optional combat targeting mode or join the action of revitalized and enhanced Player Vs. Player warfare to win respect and great PVP gear.
Here are some of the cool features that await you in the Big Trouble in the BigApple expansion:
The Manhattan Exclusion Zone – the game’s very first raid set in the middle of a devastated Times Square, offering a massive challenge for groups of 10 players.
The Albion Theater – in this London theater venue, players can put on their own stage plays, control everything from props to lighting, and invite others to sit in the audience.
The Chainsaw – a brand new and extremely powerful auxiliary weapon that opens up several new abilities for players to acquire.
Reticule Combat – a new, optional combat mode that allows you to use your mouse pointer to aim for targets.
Massive PvP Enhancements – this update revitalizes parts of the player vs. player gameplay, particularly the large-scale secret society warfare in Fusang.
The Secret World is a unique and exciting new MMO that takes players into an apocalyptic near future unlike any seen before in online gaming. If you haven’t already played this great game, you owe to yourself to give it a try and enter the thrilling and mysterious universe of The Secret World.
