For those not in the know, The Secret World touts a very interesting form of gameplay, breaking all MMORPG style guidelines.
“Imagine if your worst nightmare came to life. 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. This is the premise for The Secret World, Funcom’s upcoming massively multiplayer online game set in the modern day real world. Enter an online world where every conspiracy theory, myth and urban legend is true. Enter The Secret World.”
Experience a game that has no classes or levels. In-depth and continuous character customization allows you to create the alter-ego that you want to play, and gameplay that goes beyond the usually rigid MMO structure allows you to play the game the way you want to play it.
Join the Illuminati, the Templars or the Dragon – the three secret societies that pull the strings of our world. Work your way to the top, earn titles and rewards, and play a key role in the battle for world domination as you engage in furious player vs. player battles throughout the world.
