The Secret World looks like it’s trying hard to cast away the shackles of traditional MMO design. Good luck to them. It’s been put together the people behind Age of Conan and Anarchy Online and if you’re wondering about those acents – teams in Oslo and Beijing.
The game is inspired by mythology and some of the more modern conspiracy theories of our time and set in a world where magic is real, monsters prowl around and ancient enemies battle for dominance.
I agree with Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom, when he said;
“We believe there are millions of gamers out there who want to explore something beyond traditional fantasy and sci-fi games,”
What do you think? Is The Secret World the game that’ll reach out to these gamers?
