Today Funcom launched the first content update for the MMO The Secret World.
The update, called Issue #1: Unleashed, is the first of many updates - or Issues - that are part of Funcom's monthly update plan where the company will bring one major content update to the game once every month.
Issue #1: Unleashed introduces several new elements to the game, including several new investigation missions. Players will now also be able to use the marketplace, a brand new, cross-dimensional feature letting you sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter what dimension they are playing on.
This weekend - from August 3rd until August 6th - Funcom will be celebrating that The Secret World has been live for one whole month. During this time, anyone can register and try out The Secret World for free.
Funcom is also giving away in-game fireworks to everyone - up to 15 per character. Players will also be tasked with a special challenge this weekend: complete 30 in-game missions to help those in need and receive a special in-game t-shirt as well as 1200 bonus points that can be used in the in-game store.
The Secret World launched last month for Windows PC.
