Funcom rolls out "The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn" to The Secret World
Any purported stumbles at launch or the free-to-play transition have done little to slow down the gang at Funcom. In fact, it seems that content updates for The Secret World have somehow been accelerated -- Issue #5 hit the servers today, entitled "The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn."
Along with general fixes, this storyline serves as the first DLC for the game since going free-to-play earlier this month. This means that "All current players and all players who purchase the game in December 2012 will receive it for free," however it will be a for-pay mission going forward.
Also included are three other new missions:
- The Uncertainty Principle – the mission to the new Auxiliary weapon ‘Quantum Brace’ has now been activated. To get started in this mission, talk to Moose in Kingsmouth.
- From Carthage to Cairo - Tanis in the Scorched Desert needs help in covering her tracks in her involvement of a certain shipment.
- Obstructive Persons – help Alina Florea in The Shadowy Forest with her plans to leave Morninglight.
I can't help but cheer at what Funcom is doing here. The Secret World deserves all of the critical acclaim it gets, and most certainly deserves more players. It's free now, why not give it a try?
