Funcom has detailed the next monthly content drop for beleagured MMORPG The Secret World. Issue #6: The Last Train To Cairo takes place in – where else? – Egypt, and involves time travel.
Players will be tasked with freeing catured warriors of the Marya from Atenist cultists. Good old Said, the undead weapons trader, has advice to offer, and by following his guidance through main and side missions, you’ll uncover the truth behind the Atenist movement. It all culminates in a showdown on top of the titular train racing towards Cairo with a lethal cargo.
The update also adds a new auxiliary weapon, the whip, which is good for buffs and crowd control, and opens up a new ten-man raid in the South Pacific for those strong enough to tackle lairs.
Issue #6 is due in early March and kicks off a Veteran and Recruitment program which rewards long-term members and those who bring in newbies, as well as a new PvP ranking system.
