The Secret World Preview | Not So Secret Anymore

Tucked away in the depths of the Koelnmesse, EA were previewing a number of high profile games to members of the press. Among the numerous titles on show was the upcoming MMORPG The Secret World from genre veterans Funcom. While quite a few cinematic trailers have been floating around internet for a while, in-game action was on display and Dealspwn was there to check out what Funcom had in store.

For the uninitiated, The Secret World is an MMORPG that takes place in a modern day setting where the numerous myths of ages and conspiracy theories are all true, filled with horrors clearly inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. In this world, secret societies work to preserve humanity’s place, although they all want to ultimately have power and be on control. Players will be able to choose from three such factions; The traditionalist Templars, the extravagant Illuminati, and the manipulative Dragon, and it is down to the players to help fight for their faction whilst keeping the forces of darkness at bay.
