The Secret World’s Christmas Conspiracies event takes the stage

conspiricy+headere The Secret Worlds Christmas Conspiracies event takes the stage

What’s Christmas without a clown and a chainsaw? Nothing — if you’re in The Secret World. The game that excels as conspiracies has turned one into a holiday event for players to unravel. It all starts with attending a show at London’s Albion Theater and winds its way through gathering clues and solving Musical “Magic Flute” puzzles, even discovering Old Saint Nick’s tomb.

And what’s a Christmas without gifts? TSW offers new pets like an undead polar bear, funky hats, and more outfits and costume pieces — including a carrot nose — in the Rucksacks of Saturnalian Delights. The bags are rewards for finishing the holiday missions as well as available in the item shop. As during the Halloween event, players who purchase a special bag (this time the Bag of Wassail) in the shop to share with players will be rewarded with an all-new dance.

As in years past, previous holiday events are also live and running. However, the launchpad warns players that the End of Days event is currently experiencing issues and the team is working to resolve them.
