    Today an announcement was posted revealing that The Black Watchmen universe will once again appear in The Secret World through NITE Team 4. We are excited to be partnering with Funcom again for this project and the new opportunities it will bring for further expanding the Alternate Reality world we have been building over the years.

    We're expecting an increase in players with this partnership, so please extend a warm welcome to any new agents you see wandering the halls. We also invite everyone from the community to share with us their questions, concerns and excitement regarding this announcement!

    NEW MISSION! Look at my new thread on suspected missions.

    This is indeed impressive. How exactly are the crossover missions going to work? Are we talking locked content in TSW because that may not go down well...

    Hi Kle!

    The mission starts in The Secret World (Quest giver, NITE Team 4 terminal, etc) and will continue in NITE Team 4 (aerial recon from TSW location, hacking of terminal unlocked in TSW, etc) with the ARG components attached to our online investigation (background check, fake website, virtual dead drop, NPC interactions).

    The mission will only be available when NITE Team 4 launches, mostly because we have to build all the components to properly fill the TSW universe and bridge the experience in both games. The pledge helps us pay for the voice cover, creative content, etc…

    It's a really unique approach, we never pushed an ARG mission in the past to a point where you had to integrate the narrative in two universes and I think we can make something very compelling and immersive.

    If you don't buy NITE Team 4, you will still get a free reward in TSW (Military Backpack) and as you know, anyone can join our open Live Events! (we have done 18 in the last 2 years)

    Any plans to allow pledges via PayPal instead of Kickstarter? :)

    You guys keep pushing the limits and always experiment new creative ways to connect and tell stories. That's this level of risk-taking and ingenuity that really makes this game company unique.
