The Secret World is the perfect game for any horror fan, and after participating in one of its Beta Weekends, I can enthusiastically tell you that the game is kick-ass! The next Beta Weekend will run from June 22nd-24th. One final chance to get a glimpse into the darkness that is The Secret World!

From the Press Release
‘The Secret World’, the highly anticipated modern-day massively multiplayer online game of myths, legends and conspiracies, draws ever closer to its July 3rd release date. In preparation for launch, Funcom is excited to announce that the fourth and final Beta Weekend – titled ‘The Battle Begins’ – will be made open to all of the more than 1.3 million gamers who have signed up to beta test ‘The Secret World’. Guaranteed access to the final Beta Weekend will also be given to everyone registering via the game’s official website by June 22nd (use the beta sign-up form on the right).

‘The Secret World Beta Weekend #4: The Battle Begins’ starts at 9am PDT on June 22nd and runs for almost three entire days until 11.59pm PDT on June 24th. During that time players will be able to experience all the content that has been included in the three previous Beta Weekends, such as all three secret society starter experiences, the town of Kingsmouth, the Savage Coast and the Polaris and Hell Raised dungeons. Brand new this weekend is the inclusion of player vs. player gameplay, where the secret societies must duke it out in legendary locations such as Stonehenge and Eldorado. Participants will also get to experience the persistent player vs. player war zone of Fusang Projects, where over two hundred players clash together in a massive struggle for server-wide power. The outcome of these battles affects all players belonging to the victorious secret society, across the server.

The previous Beta Weekend – titled ‘Hell Raised’ – ran from June 15th to June 17th and saw the highest number of players yet participating and is undoubtedly the most successful event yet.

“The game is definitely living up to our expectations, and it appears this is a sentiment we share with our testers as well,” says Funcom SVP of Sales & Marketing Morten Larssen. “The playtime per participant during the last Beta Weekend was very impressive, shattering all records from previous Beta Weekends or even beta events from our previous games. This is a strong indication of the engagement and depth of the gameplay experience. Beta surveys have shown that four out of five players will recommend the game to their friends, something we find remarkably positive and a true testament to the quality of the game and the amazing work the team has done.”

‘The Secret World’ is consistently mentioned as one the most highly anticipated MMOs in development. The highly engaged and active community surrounding the game continues to grow quickly, and hundreds of thousands of community members have already sworn allegiance to their secret society through online initiation tests as well as ‘The Secret War’ Facebook-powered pre-launch social experience that saw over 250.000 participants actively engage in the conflict for their secret society.

The Secret World will be available for PC on July 3, 2012.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Published

on

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

Synopsis:
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld.
