As reported yesterday, Funcom is planning to have the third Beta Weekend for The Secret World from June 15th until June 17th. In this new beta, gamers will be able to explore a wealth of new content that was not available in the two previous Beta Weekends, including the Dragon and Illuminati starter experiences.
Along with the exciting beta news, Funcom is also excited to share that over 1.3 million gamers are now registered as potential beta testers for 'The Secret World', shattering all previous company records including that of its previous MMO 'Age of Conan'. The company is regularly inviting more and more from this pool of people into the ongoing and very successful Closed Beta. A recent survey among the tens of thousands of testers, who have played in the Closed Beta, confirms that the vast majority is enjoying the game and will play it at launch.
"We are very encouraged by both the numbers of beta registrations and the positive feedback we are getting from our testers," says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. "The fact that so many gamers want to play 'The Secret World' combined with the high purchase intent among testers is something we consider a very positive indicator."
The company can also share today that 'The Secret World' has now gone GOLD, and that production of physical units have started and that these will soon be rolled out to retail in preparation of launch on July 3rd. For those who have pre-ordered, Early Access will commence on June 29th as planned.
