The Secret World is getting closer and closer to launch, and this Friday we’re kicking off the very first Beta Weekend!
Starting Friday May 11th at 9am PST and running until Sunday May 13th at 11:59pm PST, you will be able to jump into The Secret World and play the game yourself. The best way to ensure that you get to play this weekend is to pre-order the game, which grants access to this first one as well as all upcoming Beta Weekends.
This Beta Weekend, titled Kingsmouth Calling, will allow you to experience the game as an initiate of the Templars. After being instructed on your task in your secret society’s headquarters, you are sent through the Hollow Earth to arrive on Solomon Island, a small place off the coast of New England.
Here the small town of Kingsmouth is under siege and you must discover what dark force lies behind it all. A strange fog has come in from the ocean and death has followed in its wake.
The dead are rising. The monsters of the forest are stirring. An ancient and terrible power is awaking.
Some brave islanders are still fighting for survival against the dark forces, but they are completely cut off from the rest of the world. You can help them in their struggle, or investigate purely for selfish reasons. Team up with any of the thousands of other players also joining the Beta Weekend, or go solo and enjoy it at your own pace. The choice is yours.
