'Secret World Legends' Content Update Adds Tokyo City Location

Secret World Legends plunges players into a shadowy war against the supernatural in an adventure that crosses our world with the realms of ancient myth and legend.

An ancient, dreaming evil stirs. Dangerous creatures awaken. The Earth is in mortal peril. The wonders and horrors of the secret world are re-emerging in our world. The time has come to take up arms in the war between good & evil. Warriors and champions of Gaia, your training is about to begin. Rise. You have been chosen.

As players traverse the globe unraveling complex investigations into the unknown, they’ll need to uncover clues and use their own wits as much as their characters’ abilities. A highly extensive and customizable arsenal of firearms, weapons, gear and otherworldly powers will give players the strength to battle the forces of darkness as they dig deeper into these vast and mysterious lands. Players can go at it alone and enjoy the over 100 hours of story at their own pace, or team up with others as they explore the world and unravel its mysteries.

Funcom has just updated Secret World Legends with Tokyo: Back to the Beginning, the first of three major content additions that expands the game world into a disaster-ridden and monster-infested Tokyo City. Offering hours more content and story, a host of new enemies from Japanese folklore to battle, and dark places in Tokyo to explore, this is the first of three massive Tokyo updates that will take players up to where the story in The Secret World left off. Once these updates are out, the developers can begin weaving an entirely new story; the story of Secret World Legends.

“The Tokyo updates represent the final part of the storyline that was The Secret World,” says Executive Producer Scott Junior. “Secret World Legends has opened up the game to an entirely new audience who will experience the Tokyo storyline for the very first time. But there is much more to come, and we especially want our veteran players to know that as the storyline of The Secret World ends, the storyline of Secret World Legends is about to start. This winter, a brand new story will be revealed. Players will get to go to new locations, meet new characters, and experience adventures they never have before.”

Tokyo: Back to the Beginning offers many hours of new content and story, a host of new enemies from Japanese folklore and several new characters with their own motives and agendas. It continues the critically acclaimed game story in a new chapter and brings players back to where it all began.
