The Secret World Issue #5: The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn has gone live now, and brings with it the Mayan-themed ‘End of Days’ event that begins tomorrow, December 21st. The update follows an ARG game orchestrated by Funcom that saw gamers hacking and solving equations to earn in-game items. We’ve got some more event details after the jump.
The ‘End of Days’ event will run from December 21st until January 7th, and sees hordes of undead Mayans infesting The Secret World, as well as three giant harbingers that need defeating. With them comes new missions, items, pets, challenges and a wealth of new challenges for you to tackle.
