The Secret World will be celebrating 'Black Weekend' from Friday June 14th (tomorrow) until next Monday, offering double XP potions and some free gear to those who log into the Lovecraftian MMO. Its new buy once, play without subscription model is paying dividends for the player base, which has significantly increased since the ropey launch. Carl heaped praises on the project in our 8/10 The Secret World review.
We've got the Black Weekend details below.
Every day you log in during the event you receive an XP potion. These potions increase your XP gain from defeating monsters by 100% and lasts for 8 hours. Claim the potions in the Item Store.
Free Black Boots
Merely log into the game during the event and claim the Black Heavy Buckled Boots from the Item Store! Tough guys and gals wear black!
Bonus Black Bullion
Every time you would receive Black Bullion from any source, you will receive one extra! This means every boss defeated in a Nightmare Dungeon and the Condenser of Quintessence will give one extra Black Bullion!
Free Membership Months for Recruiting!
For every new player you recruit from today and until the end of the Black Weekend Event you get a free month of Membership in addition to the Veteran Points you get normally (if you are a Grandmaster customer you receive $15 worth of Bonus Points instead). (To receive the month of Membership or Bonus Points you must invite between now and the end of the Black Weekend and the recruit must purchase The Secret World within 30 days.)
