The Secret World is a massively multiplayer online world with a unique modern-day setting and unparalleled freedom of character progression.

What works

The game installs fine and once past the flashing login screen everything appears to work fine. Was able to get 20-30 fps depending on location which is only a small drop from what is obtained with similar hardware in Windows using the same settings.

What does not

As others have reported there is UI flashing in the login screen and when loading new areas start, otherwise the UI seems to be stable.

Lighting seems to be off. Surfaces seem to be either lit or shaded entirely. For example on characters one half of the front of the character will appear to be in full darkness while the other half appears to be in full light.


What was not tested

pvp, 5-man instances, raids

Additional Comments

As has been mentioned in other reports this game currently requires d3dx9_43 and d3dcompiler_43 to be installed via wine tricks. There are several issues with the X11 drivers on MacOS, including patcher transparency and update issues, and multi-monitor using Yosemite. The Mac drivers work well however.
