The Secret World delayed slightly

Funcom have announced a slight delay to The Secret World; previously on for June, the MMO is now on for an early July launch. July 3rd, specifically.

The company feels that the early July release will be a “more positive launch window which will benefit the launch of the game.” Early access will still fit into June though, the 29th.

Two of the remaining beta weekends have been detailed as well. Official word on those below:

  • 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 massive region known as Savage Coast, where they will soon find that the very gates of hell itself have opened up! This will allow players to experience the epic ‘Hell Raised’ dungeon where you will have to battle the demons of hell itself!
  • 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.
