A series of mysterious forum posts
might be a new alternate reality game for The Secret World
The posts show a honeycomb cylinder with a note and SD cards inside that was sent by a fan to Funcom
. The note reads, "To unlock the truths of the void, one must offset themselfs [sic] from the tenements [sic] of known reality." On the SD cards were very small files with a few letters and numbers in each
The studio made the files public
, and the players have responded by investigating what appears to be a community-led ARG. If a Massively reader can crack the code, make sure to share with the entire class!
[Update: This was sent in by a fan, not the developers. Made changes to the story accordingly.]
