The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn – Signature Story Arc
The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn is a series of quests added in content update 1.5. This is the first purchased download content in the Secret World “Buy to Play” business model. Once you buy the pack and activate it, you get an inventory item called VIP map, Freeborn. Activating that opens up a map near the Asylum in Blue Mountains.
Right near the Turner house, you find the first quest marker, an SD card sitting on the side of the road. Quests in the Tyler Freeborn sequence include:
- The Search for Tyler Freeborn – exposes some of the back information on the fog
- The Research of Tyler Freeborn – Tyler found a number of things after the fog hit Solomon Island
- The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn – What did the Orochi find out from Tyler’s investigations?
- The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn – Where we walk, together, as if in a dream…
…More to come!
