Funcom needs you to take part in ‘The End of Days’.
One of the many things that separates The Secret World from other MMORPGs out there is its inclusion of real-world myths and the occult, and it seems Funcom aren’t done with emulating the darker elements of human culture.
Following a similar vein Funcom has announced a new alternate reality game titled ‘The End of Days’ centring on the Mayan prophecy or more appropriately their ancient calendar ending on Friday, December 21st. Four days before Christmas…bummer.
“Mankind has been warned. On December 21st there will be a cataclysmic event that marks the end of time as we know it. It is time to prepare,” states the official website where you can register to be part of the event.
“Leading up to the end of days is a unique Alternate Reality Game (ARG) set in and around The Secret World universe that will prepare you for this inevitable cosmic event. Register now to take part in the ARG – and to give yourself a fighting chance to survive!”
Wannabe players have to add their email address to register, but they can also plonk down their Twitter handle and mobile phone number to be properly immersed. Interestingly you don’t have to be a subscriber of The Secret World to take part, but if you happen to already be playing the MMORPG, you will unlock a in-game monk outfit, XP potions, gear and an invite to a special celebration event with the devs if you take part.
The End of Days ARG is set to begin over the next few days, so register now if you want to be a part of it. We’ll be giving it a miss as frankly the registration page for this event alone gives us the creeps!
