VIDEO | Sexy Demons & Tokyo Terror: The Secret World Issue #9 Brings The Horror!

The Secret World is still the most atmospheric MMORPG ever made. Or, to put it another way, it's bloody terrifying when it wants to be.

I'm currently polishing off our review of The Secret World's long-awaited Tokyo story arc, which has now begun courtesy of Issue #9: The Black Signal, so figured that I'd share some of my misadventures with you in video format. Having recently run through Outlast on Xbox One, I was confident that a quick jaunt through an abandoned parking garage would be a piece of cake, only the cake has already been eaten by murderous ghostly children-that-aren't-any-more oh god no THEY'RE FOLLOWING ME DON'T BLINK

Apologies. Beware major spoilers and disturbingly sexy demon overlords, since this is a story mission. Stay tuned for our full review -- and perhaps some videos narrated in coolly-assured confidence as opposed to nervy adrenaline-soaked rambling -- later this week.

Be sure to pore over my recent love letter to The Secret World if you're unsure about what makes Funcom's Lovecraftian adventure one of the most extraordinary MMORPGs to ever release.

I think you missed the best part! The dying man, after you've examined him and turn to leave, the car horn goes off again. If you turn back at this point, you'll find that he's slumped over even more, and the sword is gone! Dun dun DUUN.

Haha, awesome, sadly I was too busy freaking out like a massive wuss (and trying to avoid the corpse as much as possible, to be totally honest!). I'll keep an eye out next time. 8)

Looking forward to the new mission pack, which I'm told is one of the most "unique" and innovative to date. Should have the issue #9 review finished off by then.
