The Secret World Beta Update
WELCOME TO THE BETA TESTING OF THE SECRET WORLD
You have been selected to participate in the closed beta phase of Funcom's upcoming MMO, The Secret World. You will automatically be included in all
future beta events for The Secret World.

To set up your account:
1. Visit the following site: register.thesecretworld.com...
2. If you already have a Funcom account, log in and enter the Beta Access Key in the Key Registration section on the bottom left.

After registering your account you can download the client from the account page by clicking the "Game Download" link and saving the tsw-en.exe file
to your computer. When it has finished downloading you need to run the executable and following the installation prompts. After the game has installed
the TSW Patcher will automatically launch.
The beta is currently open and we are doing invites in waves. Your account will be activate from Tuesday May 8th at 5pm EST, however you are able to
create you account, install and patch the game before this time. For more information, please see the beta forum or the game launcher. We have chosen
to conduct the tests targeted towards specific areas and/or features of the game we want testing and feedback on. As the beta progresses you will have
access to more content than these targeted tests and the length of when the beta will be open will also increase.
Please keep in mind this is a beta and that the primary function of a beta is to uncover technical and gameplay related issues so that we can iron
these out and improve the game before release. This means that there will be issues with both content and features that will be detrimental to your
experience. Your role as a beta tester is to identify these and report them to us so that we can fix them. Also keep in mind that we are currently
testing only specific content and features, and as such you will only discover a portion of the finished game's content. Over time as we get closer
to the release of the game, we will be adding more and more features and content that you will be able to discover, test and help us improve.
You account will be activated for the PvE Tech test scheduled for Tuesday May 8th. For more information, please see the beta forum or the game
launcher. We have chosen to conduct the tests targeted towards specific areas and/or features of the game we want testing and feedback on. As the beta
progresses you will have access to more content than these targeted tests and the length of when the beta will be open will also increase.
During registration you will automatically be added to the TSW Beta Forums. You can find the forums here: forums-beta.darkdaysarecoming.com...
You should use the forums as your main means of giving us feedback. We will use the forums to organize test events, give news about new content
arriving on the beta, and much much more! Be sure to check it and participate in the conversations as much as possible.
