Funcom has launched a new ARG (Alternate Reality Gaming) for The Secret World community, as introduced in the teaser above.
Following the end of the five week long The Secret War social experience, participants were treated to a brand new page inviting them to join a new mission.
On this page, participants can choose to view three videos, one for each secret society that makes up the struggle for power in Funcom's upcoming MMO The Secret World. Each of these videos lead to a unique puzzle that must be solved by going to 'fake' websites and piecing together important information. But this puzzle is just the beginning. During the next few weeks participants will be treated to new mysteries, puzzle and an intriguing storyline told through videos and websites.
Can you solve these mysteries put forth to the community? Head to funcom.com, click anywhere on the page background and type '33' to start your journey.
The Secret World is an upcoming, modern-day MMORPG from Funcom (makers of Anarchy Online and Age of Conan). To be released for PC on July 3rd, 2012, the game blends elements of MMO gameplay with alternate reality gaming and social networking in an original setting with contemporary elements.
Imagine if every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend was true. Imagine a world where you can become anything you want to be, without restrictions such as classes or levels. This is the premise for The Secret World, Funcom’s upcoming massively multiplayer online game set in the modern-day real world.
