Funcom has released a new trailer highlighting some of the things in Kingsmouth - ground zero for their new mmo The Secret World.
Here's a look at what Funcom has to say about this new title:
"There are darker and far more terrifying things in Kingsmouth than the walking dead," says Senior Producer and Director Ragnar T'rnquist. "The video simply scratches the surface and reveals only a tiny glimpse of what this location is all about. Kingsmouth harbors ancient secrets and dark conspiracies that players have to work together to uncover - along with a menagerie of evil, including creatures from myth and legend, and horrors from the sea. A mysterious mist has enshrouded the entire Solomon Island, and it will be up to the players to figure out what's happened and to stop this terror from spreading further."
"The video consists entirely of in-game footage, except for the obvious color modifications and distortion effects," says Erling Ellingsen, Director of Communications at Funcom. "One of the reasons why we have chosen to reveal the footage in this unique way is because we are saving the undistorted, full color in-game footage for the Game Developer Conference in March. Our plan right now is to showcase actual gameplay for the first time ever to the media at GDC, as well as releasing all-new footage to the public at the same time. Of course, much can happen before March and some of the gamers out there might want to keep their tin foil hats on and their eyes keenly open for more mysterious clues to appear."
`The Secret World' is Funcom's third massively multiplayer game, having previously developed the award-winning `Anarchy Online' and the best selling new MMO of 2008 `Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures'. The game features a modern-day, real world setting where every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend is true, and where thousands of players from all over the world must join one of three secret societies in the fight against darkness and each other.
