The Secret World, a new MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game), came out this week and the game is already raking it loads of excellent reviews. Players are loving the detailed locations, the ferocious beasts to battle (including vampires) and the stories and quests. Only a few days on the shelf and The Secret World is already a gamer favorite.
“The Secret World is a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) set in a modern Earth environment, but incorporating a wealth of mythological, magic-based and urban legend elements into its action. Gameplay revolves around the struggle of good vs. evil, and is designed for in-depth and enjoyable play for all players, dispensing with traditional RPG levels and character classes. It instead utilizes a skill-based system for character building. Additional features include, a blend of real-life and imagined locations, a variety of secret societies to join, thousands of weapons and powers, and so on.
Imagine if every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend was true. Imagine a world where vampires hunt for mortal blood in dingy London nightclubs, where werewolves lurk in the sewers beneath Seoul, and where the undead prey on the living in the shadows of New York City. Imagine a world where you can become anything you want to be, without restrictions such as classes or levels. This is the premise for The Secret World, Funcom’s Massively Multiplayer Online RPG set in the modern-day real world.
Imagine a world where entire governments are swayed by the hidden hand and word of secret societies. In The Secret World you get to join these secret societies. The Illuminati, the Dragon and the Templars – each stand united in their war against the rising darkness, but divided in their pursuit for power. What secret society you choose to join will have profound, long-lasting effects on your gameplay experience.”
