Today Funcom launched the first content update for The Secret World, bringing new experiences to the recently launched modern-day massively multiplayer online of myths, legends and conspiracies. The update, called Issue #1: Unleashed, is the first of many updates - or Issues - that are part of Funcom's ambitious monthly update plan where the company will bring one major content update to the game once every month.
Issue #1: Unleashed introduces several new elements to the game, including several new investigation missions - Funcom's unique and innovative take on MMO questing. Players will now also be able to use the marketplace, a brand new, cross-dimensional feature allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter what dimension they are playing on. For more information about Issue #1: Unleashed and what it contains, please see the information article on the official website.
