PSA: The Secret World is Free This Weekend

Funcom’s newly released MMO The Secret World is free this weekend, so you can give you Illuminati/Templar/Dragon character a whirl for free, and kill some zombies (among many other freaks).

You’ll need to register here to take part in the free weekend, which is actually part of a celebration of the first month of The Secret World being live and running. Once you’re registered, you can download the game client and play for free from Aug. 3 through Aug. 6. More info is on Funcom’s post on the event here.

As part of the celebration, you can also get some exclusive in-game stuff.

Your task, if you choose to accept it: During the celebration weekend running from August 3-7, solve 30 in-game missions to help those in need and receive a special in-game t-shirt and 1200 bonus points.

“Free fireworks for everyone! During the celebration weekend, you will be able to claim fireworks – 15 per character – in the in-game Item Shop for free! Brighten the sky and lighten the mood in these dark days, it’s time to party!

We know our players are dedicated, but we want everyone to see it! During the celebration weekend, we will have a special leader board, showing the 100 most dedicated mission solvers in The Secret World universe.

This weekend will also see the launch of The Secret World Issue No. 1, the first of the game’s monthly content releases that adds new story and missions in which players can take part. More details right here.

I’ve given The Secret World a go and had a good time with its story so far, echoing a lot of what our CJ Miozzi said in his review. Are you taking part in the free weekend?
