Players who logged in this week to The Secret World
might have noticed that there was a new male costume option in the game store: a neon green mankini that covered very, very little. However, those who purchased said mankini discovered the costume gone today, as Funcom
pulled the April Fools' Day
outfits from characters' dressing rooms, refunded the points spent on them, and gave each previous owner a free mystery box.
While there was no explanation as to why the outfit was removed, Funcom apologized for the handling of the joke
on the forums: "You may or may not be aware, but the mankini was removed. Anyone that purchased the item has been refunded points and has received a mystery box for the inconvenience. However, if you had purchased points in order to buy the mankini, you can contact customer service for a refund of those points. We're terribly sorry for the trouble, folks. Our CS staff will be happy to help."
