The Secret World | The Massive Final Beta Weekend is Upon Us

The Battle Begins this Friday, as Funcom’s final beta weekend for The Secret World brings the focus down on player versus player content (finally)! If you played in any of the previous beta weekends your character progress will be carried over and you will now be able to queue for any of the player versus player instances that were previously inactive. El Dorado and Stonehenge are just a couple of the fabled places that the secret societies can battle out with each other. All previous content (including the two new dungeons revealed last beta weekend) will also be available. Last weekend’s Hell Raised, which included a dungeon that saw players entering the depths of Hell itself, saw the largest turnout for a beta weekend thus far for the highly anticipated modern MMO.

“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.”

If that’s not proof enough that The Secret World may very well be the next big thing in MMO’s, the pre-launch Facebook game “The Secret War” had gathered over 250,000 participants. In this final beta weekend players can play as a member of any of the three secret societies and experience their starting content and individual hub worlds. The chaos obsessed Dragon start in Seoul, Korea, the shadowy Illuminati in New York and the ruthlessly noble Templars in London.  Developed by Funcom and published by EA, The Secret World will launch for PC on July 3. Beta Weekend 4, titled The Battle Begins starts at 9am PDT on June 22 and runs for almost three entire days until 11:59pm PDT on June 24
