The monthly content update plan for The Secret World
is ambitious, and Funcom has made good on their promise thus far. The first update, titled "Issue #1: Unleashed" has introduced several new investigation missions and use of a marketplace similar to Diablo III's auction house.
To celebrate the new update, Funcom is allowing new players to play for free from August 3rd until August 6th at 7 a.m. GMT. Access can be obtained by using the form on the right hand side of the game's website.
