Funcom today announced that the company has made a small adjustment to the release date for The Secret World.
Said to be due to market reasons, the ship date has been moved by two weeks to July 3rd, with Early Access starting June 29th.
Also announced is the third Beta Weekend, titled 'Hell Raised', will begin on June 15th and run until June 17th. In this Beta Weekend players will be able to experience the Illuminati and Dragon starter experiences as well as the Templar experience. Players will also get to leave Kingsmouth and venture into the region known as Savage Coast.
The fourth and final Beta Weekend will begin on June 22nd and run until June 24th. This event will focus on the player vs. player experience in The Secret World, and players will get to sample both the Eldorado battlefield experience as well as the massive warzone gameplay where over a hundred players clash together in persistent battle. Here the Illuminati, the Templars and the Dragon will get to duke it out and hone their battle skills on each other before the real conflict begins when Early Access opens on June 29th.
The Secret World is set to launch on Windows PC.
