Secret World Launches Persistent Alternate Reality Game
For those of you that remember the years leading up to the launch of the Secret World and the ARG that we all played during that time, it looks like the ARG is coming back and it'll be an ongoing thing for the game. For those that never played the Secret World ARGs, the acronym stands for alternate reality game and is about providing a story and missions in real life as opposed to within the confines of the game. So you'll probably be given real clues and puzzles to further a fictional story.
The ARG is created by Human Equation, who brought the Secret World community The End of Days ARG in December 2012 and the first Black Watchmen ARG right before the launch of the Secret World. The new ARG will be persistent and will be coming in September 2014.
I actually only participated in the original ARG and never played the MMO game, so I find that I'm intrigued by the idea of an ARG being a persistent game.
