All Grows Up: The Secret World Turns One
The Secret World will be celebrating its 1-year anniversary this week. Starting July 3 (Wednesday) and going through July 8, there will be a bunch of cool stuff happening in celebration: epic world bosses; item store discounts; bonuses to XP, AP and SP; special gifts to participants. I don’t see anything on the official site yet, but I’m sure there’ll be something soon. If you haven’t played it, it’s worth checking out. It’s a flavor of free-to-play…you have to buy the game ($30) but the membership is optional. Membership has some nifty perks, but the game is a ton of fun without having to drop membership money. The mechanics/interface remind me a lot of Guild Wars. The setting is a cool mashup of Supernatural, Buffy, X-Files, and pretty much every other nerdpop IP out there.
