In a blog post prefaced with a spoiler alert, Senior Designer Tanya Short
delved into The Secret World's
upcoming Halloween event that was initially mentioned when The Cat God
went live. Players already know that Halloween plays prominently in the game, as holiday decorations abound throughout Solomon Island, and Ragnar Tornquist
himself likened it to Christmas in terms of holiday importance for TSW
The official spook day content will be released around October 15th. According to Short, players can look forward to a more light-hearted experience than the main plot. In fact, she states, "Halloween should be more like 'an episode of Buffy
.'" The storyline will begin in Kingsmouth and will flesh out a couple of cat characters who have been waiting in the wings as well as add depth to the stories of two known characters. Stonehenge is also in the spotlight, and players can get a Head-O-Lantern for a limited time.
