The Secret World is back with new content, having released a new pack of Side Stories in their latest patch. I had to delay my return to the game for a week because I was out of town, but now I’m back and together with my usual Secret Monday crew consisting of Syp, Tententacles and my husband, we rocked more quests in Tokyo.
Side Stories: The Last Pagan includes six new missions, and seeing as big updates from Funcom seem to be so few and far between, once again stretching out the content by doing one quest per week feels like a pretty good idea.
For our first mission, our party hit up new NPC Ricky Pagan in all his pompadour glory, and sought to reunite his lost gang by using THE ALL MIGHTY POWER OF ROCK! Oooh yeeeaaaah…
Like any mission, The Pagan had your fair share of fighting and kicking ass, but as you can see, much of it was also spent rollicking and jamming out to my swanky boombox. I ask you, what other game lets you do that…as part of the mechanics?! Oh look, my teammates are in combat and getting killed, but eh, let me just finish this song, okay?
The mission even ends with a dance party…with ghosts. If this first quest is any indication, looks like we’ll be in for some wild, whacky fun for the rest of this mission pack.
