The Secret World will reprise its Cat God event in October, and will add new, urban legend-flavored content with Stories From Solomon Island.
Funcom has announced that its MMO The Secret World will be revisiting some of its spookier content in October to celebrate Halloween. Primarily, the developer will be re-enabling the Cat God event it ran last year, as well as introducing a new mission series that it has dubbed "Stories from Solomon Island."
Stories from Solomon Island will center on a "series of scary stories from residents across the island." Players, will be tasked with investigating the various tales and discovering the truth behind them. "Did Tyler Freeborn really die because he failed to forward 'that' email to 15 friends? What really happened to the Groundskeeper at Innsmouth Academy? Who is the Lantern Man, and what does he really want? Return to Solomon Island to become reacquainted with old friends and new terrors during Halloween this year." These and more will be fodder for the Solomon Island experience when it launches during the Halloween season this year.
In addition to its Cat God and Solomon Island reveals, Funcom took some time to discuss the status of its in-development scenarios feature. Scenarios, once finished, will be "random event driven simulations" and are currently "in their testing feedback phase internally." According to the developer, it has recently implemented changes to the feature's difficulty as well as a soft cap on grouping in solo scenarios.
