Time travel can be a pretty weird and whacked-out thing, and alternate timeline stories are just a part of that experience. It would appear that Secret World Legends is dipping its toes into that sort of narrative trope with their upcoming Dark Agartha update.
There’s not much to go on for now, but the game’s official Twitter account and Funcom’s YouTube page offered the same small bit of context to the update’s story with the following blurb:
“A mysterious path in Agartha has opened. Initially discovered by the Lost Conquistador, the question isn’t just where the portal led, but to when”
The tweet also features a video showing off this “when” — a future where the darkness has apparently overtaken the Agartha world tree location. The video shows a player character traveling through this newly infested form of Agartha, which provides a quick look at a couple of battles and even hints at a possible confrontation with a Filth-corrupted Gatekeeper.
The Dark Agartha update is due to arrive on Wednesday, November 14th. You can take a look at the teaser trailer below.
For those who don’t play SWL or TSW, perhaps a bit of context is in order: Agartha is the primary social hub, the safest location in the entire game. So with that in mind, seeing it besieged in this way is pretty jarring and exciting. We’re looking very forward to hearing more.MMO, MMORPG, News, Preview, Secret World Legends, Update, Video
