Over at the forum for The Secret World, the new game director Joel Bylos has left a great big post outlining the new features in the game’s latest update, ‘Issue #4: Big Trouble in the Big Apple’. Chief among these are… well, to be honest, he talks about a lot of things. So I would recommend you check it out if you’re at all interested in the game. But let’s just talk about some of the main features of Issue #4.

This fourth update will feature one of the game’s most requested changes, namely reticule combat. If that doesn’t sound like something you want though, Bylos does mention that it’s entirely optional and not an overhaul of the combat system, so you’ll be able to freely switch between the two. Some other interesting new additions include the introduction of the game’s second auxiliary weapon, the Chainsaw, and the opening of the Albion Theatre in London, where we can all put on plays for each other for rewards.

Finally, there will of course be, ‘Big Trouble in the Big Apple’, in the form of the game’s first raid, battling an eldritch horror in the ruins of Times Square. You can “forget about trash mobs and gunning it to get to the end boss as fast as possible; in true ‘The Secret World’ style we will be using the raid to tell a story and immerse our players into our world’s rich atmosphere,” says Bylos.

If this at all interest you, be sure to check out the full post, because this really is the bare bones. Also, it would be a disservice to such an interesting and innovative game to not mention that it does have a free trial available to download (about halfway down on the right there). If you haven’t given it a shot, I do recommend trying it for yourself!

ftp is the future, NOT THIS

 

Honestly this game delivers really good new content every month – that is worth a subscription imo.

I don’t mind subbing for games that give you new content for the subscription.
