The developer will introduce a new update (or “Issue”) each month going forward.
What can one expect from the first Issue? Funcom has provided a very helpful list to answer just that.
– New ‘Carter Unleashed’, ‘Crime and Punishment’, ‘Funeral Crasher’, ‘The 3rd Age’, ‘Red Handed’ missions along with one as-of-yet unrevealed mission.
– Two new Nightmare mode dungeons: The Ankh and Hell Fallen.
– Increased challenges, increased rewards, and a chance to test new builds, new synergies
– Cross-dimensional Marketplace, allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players
Perhaps most verily is Funcom’s insistence on making The Secret World a living world, that will continuously evolve with future updates. As more updates and missions become available, it’ll be interesting to see how this world of fables evolves.
