The Secret World Issue #9 out now for members, finally adds Tokyo playfield


By on June 7, 2014 at 7:44 am

The Secret World launched with three major realms and the promise of at least one more to come – Tokyo, a location seen briefly in the opening moments and apparently deeply involved in the still-unfolding story of mysticism and conspiracy.

Over the past two years developer Funcom has seen massive changes, downsizing and refocusing, but despite the consequential slowing down of new content it has never stopped working on the unusual MMO. Fans’ patience has now been rewarded, as Issue #9: The Black Signal adds Tokyo as the first all new playfield since launch.

Players will return to the mysterious subway where it all began, advancing the main storyline by continuing on from the Venice events. You’ll face ghosts, the demonic Oni mercenary group, and even the corrupted remnants Orochi, who seem to have spent the entire game so far falling victim to the Filth and intend to continue this trend.

The update also introduces a major new gameplay system, the AEGIS. This allows you to add three different controllers to each of your weapons to cut through various forms of shield used by the creatures of Tokyo. Enhancers are also available to augment existing builds.

Issue #9 is available all members from the Item Shop for the equivalent of USD $10. If you become a member now, you’ll enjoy this early access period plus score enough points to purchase the issue outright immediately. If you prefer to stay free-to-play, the issue will be available for purchase shortly. In either case, a collector’s edition is available with various bonuses.

I should really jump back on this, I have grandmaster after all


I want to get back. Especially since I have a lifetime account. But I since I am a casual player it is hard to find groups. Just really wished they had a proper auto grouping tool.
