The Secret World has been on my radar for a while now, but it has been in development for many many years. I haven’t yet gotten into any online MMOs, but this one is looking like it is going to be my 1st. The thing that sets The Secret World apart from just about all other MMOs, is that there is no linear path for your character. Watch the video below to find out exactly what I mean.
As you can see you have limitless possibilities. And from the variety of characters you can see throughout the video, I’m assuming there will be some sort of massive character creation. Screens and more past the break. “It is truly exciting for us to show gamers just how much freedom they will be able to enjoy in ‘The Secret World’,” says Director and Producer Ragnar Tørnquist. “The video perfectly encompasses the four important pillars of ‘The Secret World’: the modern-day setting, the freeform character progression, the dramatic storyline, and the unique secret society conflict. It feels great to reveal new details on the ‘The Secret World’ as we continue to make strides in the development of the game.”
“We are very pleased with the current state of the game,” says CEO Trond Arne Aas. “We had the opportunity to show the game live to the press at last week’s Game Developers Conference, and we look forward to start testing the game with an external audience in the next couple of months.”
The Secret World will be for the PC, AND Xbox 360. No release date yet.
