TSW announces Guardians of Gaia event to celebrate the game's one-year anniversary.
Since launching last year, The Secret World has seen a number of successes and speedbumps. To celebrate making it through its first year, Funcom has announced a new special event, Guardians of Gaia beginning July 3. The event includes free gifts for anyone participating, a 30 percent discount to most of the store, and daily bonuses (double experience, double AP and double Skill Points). Oh, and for the entire week, the client and game will be free to anyone who has ever played a Funcom game before.
Imagine if every myth and conspiracy was real. That's the madness inherent to The Secret World. Lovecraftian horrors battle massive government conspiracies, all with you in the middle. Featuring a fully-voice acted storyline, free-form class development and an innovative quest system, The Secret World peels back the MMO as you know it and reveals a world of possibilities inside.
Guardians of Gaia revolves around massive Guardians, who have been awakened to defend against the Filth. Though it's unclear why you would want to kill such seemingly helpful creatures, players who do band together and bring one down may be lucky enough to walk away with a Guardian of their own. A full rundown of the event can be found in this month's Game Director Letter from Joel Bylos.
Funcom isn't letting off with the festivities, however. Directly following the end of the Guardians of Gaia event on July 8, the Issue #7 patch, A Dream to Kill, will go live. And the team is already pumped about Issue #8. It's going to be a busy few months for anyone who plays The Secret World.
Check out the teaser for A Dream to Kill below, and don't forget to jump into Guardians of Gaia on July 3!
