The Secret World is a new type of MMORPG. It’s had a bunch of different names – Cabal, The World Online, but now it’s out and the launch seems to be a success.
Wait. Different “type of MMORPG”? What do I mean? The change is in the setting. This is not a fantasy world sandbox. This is a modern, Earth-like, world with one big difference. In this world all the myths, legends and horror stories are true. In this world secret cults battle for control.
The Templars are zealots, the Illuminati are brutal realists and the Dragon, based in Asia, support neither group and cause trouble for both while they wait for their star to rise. The game can be played as a solo adventure or as a group.
