The Secret World at GamesCom: New Trial, First Raid Instance Revealed, August Update Details

Sign-up online for three-day trial or collect a four-day trial card on the GamesCom show floor.

Funcom is excited to announce that a limited time trial for the company’s recently launched massively multiplayer online role-playing game  ‘The Secret World’ kicked off today. The trial coincides with this week’s GamesCom show that is taking place in Cologne, Germany, where Funcom is conducting press demos and showcasing exclusive new content that will be making its way into the MMO in the coming weeks and months.

The Secret World’  has struck a cord with the MMO crowd and is currently the highest rated recent PC game on MetaCritic by user score and is also the highest rated game on by reader vote. Needless to say, the trial is a great way for everyone to  see what all the fuss is about!

The trial offer is open until Sunday August 19th and to participate all you have to do is visit <gp_link type=”http” loc=”//”> and register. Registering will allow you to play for three days for free (no matter when you sign up as long as you sign up by August 19th), and players who manage to complete at least thirty missions during that time will also be awarded with two extra days of playtime! Also, during GamesCom, secret society agents clad in their iconic red, blue and green uniforms will also be roaming the show floor giving away scratch cards that enable four day trials.

Among the content being revealed for the very first time at GamesCom is the first raid that will be introduced to the game in a couple of months time. The raid, set in a devastated New York City, builds on the story focus in  ‘The Secret World’ to create a truly unique raid experience. Starting out, players will be introduced to the story by listening to the accounts of characters that have taken refuge in the New York subway system, and eventually players will battle a monster that towers over the skyscrapers in the middle of Times Square
