New Character Customization, Missions and More in August
A number of welcome changes are coming to The Secret World with the Issue 2 update.
I have a lot of respect for the quest system, narrative design and world design in Funcom's TSW. Though already one of the most interesting games in the MMO space, with improvements to combat - which has been improved markedly since the early betas - and character design, I really think TSW could be a bit special.
With that in mind, it's good to see the direction the game is headed with the latest announcement regarding the upcoming content in Issue 2.
New character customisation options will be coming in this month's update, as well as new weapons - the first auxiliary weapon, the rocket launcher - missions and plastic surgery.
A quick trip to London and a stop in at Ockham's Razor - tee hee - and you can also sort out that unmanageable hair or your unfortunate moustache choice - who do you think you are, Borat?
The Facility and Hell Eternal will also be receiving nightmare modes so you can merrily join your friends in driving each other crazy.
