I’ve not been tracking The Secret World updates as diligently of late as the upcoming Issues seemed to be of no real interest. We did log in during the Hallowe’en event to get some missions done but since that we’ve been busy in other games. So it was with mild surprise and some delight that I read, over at Massively, that there will be new story missions added in Issue 14!
The article mentions that the update with the missions is due before the “end of the year” according to a quoted developer live stream. Since the Krampus Christmas festival is to follow “soon after that” I would hope this means the missions will be out possibly before Christmas Day even?
The thought of new story missions for The Secret World is always exciting as they are very well crafted. However two of our trio, myself and our healer, still haven’t invested the time in respeccing and gearing enough to get past a blockage in the Kaiden storyline (the Nightmare in the Dream Palace mission) – we became stuck back in the summer and hadn’t returned to the game at all up until the week of Hallowe’en. Perhaps having had a break from the game I’ll feel motivated enough to make it past this mission this time around.
[edit: to correct the update number references; thanks for the heads-up on this mistake]
