Continuing the doom and gloom for the supposed ending of the world tomorrow (as predicted by a Mayan calendar), Funcom has today revealed that Issue #5; The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn has gone live for their recently subscription-free MMO The Secret World. The update introduces various new content, however the main feature seems to be an "End of Days" in-game event to celebrate the impending doom on December 21st.
End of Days Event
  • In addition to all the new and already live content in Issue #5, an in-game End of Days event will start on the 21st of December and will last until January 7th (if the world survives). During the event hordes of Mayan zombies will rise, three giant Harbingers will walk the earth, and the God of the Nine Underworlds will come to end this age. The players get new missions, face new challenges and can earn many unique rewards, such as pets or special weapons.
End of Days Contest
  • A competition will be running during the event. Players earn points by defeating these new threats and gaining their special loot. The top thousand players will be rewarded with a unique title, and the top hundred will get an exclusive pet. Players will be able to track their standing in the competition through The Secret World’s special Chronicle system.
The fifth issue also adds a new auxiliary weapon, new missions and continues the existing story arc of Solomon Island blogger Tyler Freeborn. You can find the full details of the update over at the official blog post and also a preview trailer below.
