ARG Teases Secret World Legends Launch Next Week

Funcom announces Secret World Legends will launch next week, kicking off this free-to-play reboot of The Secret World, their conspiratorial MMORPG. Most ARGs pop up without explanation, but they point the way to secretworldlegends.com to play, and this redirects to fan-site MMORPG.com. They also reveal the third-party who developed this, so it seems The Secret World boasts the least secretive ARG ever. Here's word:

One week to go! On Monday June 26th Funcom is launching 'Secret World Legends', its Free-to-Play reboot of its conspiracy themed massively multiplayer online game 'The Secret World'. With fully revamped combat mechanics, a redesigned progression system, visual upgrades, and with a greater focus on the player's journey through the world and its massive storyline, 'Secret World Legends' offers a better and more accessible entry into the world myths and legends.

With only one week to go, Funcom is counting down to release by kicking off a mystery ARG (Alternate Reality Game) titled ' Kiss of the Revenant'. Focusing on the solving of intricate puzzles and mysteries, in this ARG an unsettling storyteller invites players to take a second look at a tragic love story on the Savage Coast. Players will be challenged to decipher and perform a ritual that crafts an exclusive set of weapons for use in 'Secret World Legends'. The ARG is free and accessible to anyone on www.kissoftherevenant.com.

"This is a fantastic throwback to the early days of 'The Secret World' when we ran massive ARGs with thousands of players involved," says Game Director Romain Amiel. "We wanted to give fans an opportunity to experience that excitement again, and it is really the perfect way to get into the spirit of the Secret World universe as enter the final days before launch."

'Kiss of the Revenant' has now started and will run up to launch of the game on June 26th.

For this event, Funcom worked with the gaming studio Alice & Smith. The companies have a track record of teaming up together to make innovative, compelling alternate reality games and puzzle events, including crossovers between ' The Secret World' and Alice & Smith's own property, 'The Black Watchmen'. As part of this event, a special edition of 'Secret World Legends' will also be available soon on Steam in an ARG bundle including various exclusive in-game items and a copy of 'The Black Watchmen'.

What was that game EA made about this. I remember when these were supposed to be the next big thing, much like 'Teh Cloud!'. Fucking marketing people. The only industry that has to constantly make shit up to justify its own existence.

You've got to be cruel to be kind...in the right measure.
