With a week left before launch as of the date of this writing, Secret World Legends is counting down to launch the best way it knows how: with the Kiss of the Revenant ARG. This series of puzzle and mystery challenges will serve both as a way to stir the pot for the shared RPG’s launch as well as grant in-game items.
The ARG tells a tragic love story of two people from the Savage Coast area of the game and will challenge players with a variety riddles and puzzles leading up to SWL’s launch on Monday, June 26th. Those who finish the ARG will be rewarded with nine unique in-game weapons, each with a 20% chance to summon a Revenant that delivers an attack to enemies.
“This is a fantastic throwback to the early days of ‘The Secret World’ when we ran massive ARGs with thousands of players involved,” said director Romain Amiel in a statement. “We wanted to give fans an opportunity to experience that excitement again, and it is really the perfect way to get into the spirit of the Secret World universe as enter the final days before launch.”

The Secret World and ARGs go hand-in-hand so perfectly together. We’re going to try to not be too distracted by the puzzle ourselves because we’ve got a fair bit of work to do, but it’s certainly going to be challenging for many of us. We also sincerely hope that there are more ARGs to come.
