The Secret World Launches Final Beta Weekend

Post Thumb:


The Secret World will launch its third Beta Weekend starting June 15th to allow you to explore tons of new content. Join the horror today in the MMORPG The Secret World, which is overrun by dark creatures and where nightmares have become reality!

From the Press Release
Funcom is thrilled to invite thousands of gamers from all over the world into the bowels of hell itself, in the third Beta Weekend for the company’s highly anticipated modern-day massively multiplayer online game ‘The Secret World’. Starting on June 15th at 9am PDT and ending on June 17th at 11.59pm PDT, gamers will be able to explore a wealth of new content that was not available in the two previous Beta Weekends, including the Dragon and Illuminati starter experiences.

Whereas players in previous Beta Weekends got to sample only the Templar starter experience and the troubled town of Kingsmouth, this weekend the game will be opened up to include the massive region known as The Savage Coast, as well as two epic dungeons: The Polaris and Hell Rising. This represents only a fraction of the content available at launch, but still spans over dozens upon dozens of hours of pure gameplay. The best way to gain access to the Beta Weekend is to pre-order ‘The Secret World’. This grants access to all Beta Weekends leading up to launch. Funcom is also teaming up with major partners all over the world this week, including world-leading hardware manufacturer NVIDIA, to conduct a massive giveaway of keys that will enable play for this weekend only.

The company can also share today that ‘The Secret World’ has now gone GOLD, and that production of physical units have started and that these will soon be rolled out to retail in preparation of launch on July 3rd for PC and Xbox 360. For those who have pre-ordered, Early Access will commence on June 29th as planned.

    Love you guys, but you are WAY behind on reporting on this game. I mean the original launch date was June 19th and this is the only story you have about it. I know that there have been press betas, I suppose you could look into that if anybody on staff is interested in playing and getting more to write about…

    I know MMO’s are kind of their own breed, but horror fans owe it to themselves to at least check this out.

      Hey better late than never!

    • The Woman In Black

      I’m confused. How are behind if the launch date is the 19th and today’s only the 15th?

        Sorry if I sounded overly harsh and critical, and did not really explain myself well. This is really late responding on my part, but the beta weekends had started in early May (the weekend of the 11th) and this story titled “The Secret World Launches Beta Weekends” was for the final beta weekend. I kind of feel like “launches” implies that they are starting as opposed to wrapping up.

        Sorry for being a bit of a dick about it, and like UC said, better late than never! I really love the game and think that a lot of readers of the site will love it too so it is good to see you guys reporting on it.
