Funcom has revealed a brand new location from their upcoming MMO, The Secret World. Blue Mountain exists on Solomon Island in New England and features a dark history and much to discover. In a recent blog update, Funcom has given us some pretty exciting backstory on the area.
Located on Solomon Island, just to the west of Kingsmouth, Blue Mountain is no stranger to titanic struggles. The players must discover the epic history of the area and learn about the desperate battle fought here long ago. This can only be done through the wisdom and talents of the local Wabanaki Indian tribe.
The modern age has taken a heavy toll on the tribe and on Blue Mountain. The ancient values are waning, forced aside by spreading greed, both from without and within. Nature’s balance has been disturbed. Digging has resumed on sacred ground, stirring the evil which sleeps beneath the mountain.
In these destructive times unspeakable monsters overrun the area. The gruesome draug roam the beaches, the cursed wendigo prowl the forests, the mighty golems rise from the ground, the cold ak’ab awaken and the ghosts of the past haunt the living.
The events in Blue Mountain have attracted many kinds of attention from several sectors. Some representatives from the US Army and government agencies are desperately trying to understand what has been unleashed here.
The players must seek out and destroy malignant spirits and even enter the afterlife through a perilous ritual. This path they walk alone, and to finally cleanse the realm of the infecting Filth they must defeat a nightmarish horror at the center of it all.
The post goes on to discuss how players will have to relive old memories through a waking dream wrought by the magic of the Wabanaki. It is in this waking dream that player will fight in the war that was waged on Blue Mountain ages ago. The Secret World is steeped in history, so when you experience this waking dream you will battle ancient Mayans with the help of some bloodthirsty Vikings.
