As we line up for the end of the “real” world (rapidly approaching, December 21st), The Secret World is lining up something a little bit special itself. The conspiracy MMO Funcom launched earlier in the year is preparing an all-new alternate reality game, this one focussing on – what else? The Secret World and the end of life as we know it.
Mankind has been warned. On December 21st there will be a cataclysmic event that marks the end of time as we know it. It is time to prepare.
You are invited to sign up for the project by handing over your email address. Your cellphone number and Twitter handle might help with the experience, but we can’t guarantee anything. You do not have to play The Secret World to participate in the ARG, but if you do, then you’ll be rewarded with a handful of cool items:
- An exclusive Monk outfit will be rewarded to any participant which can be worn in-game once the ARG has started
- Experience potions that will allow you to progress faster in the game
- Special items when Issue #6 launches, including an unique end of days survival outfit and other powerful items
- Invitation to an online end of days celebration event with members of the TSW development team
Head to the Secret World website if you’d like to know more, but at this stage – beside some creepy whispering – things are being kept awfully quiet.
