Funcom has today officially launched early access for The Secret World, giving any player who pre-ordered an early glimpse into the modern world of myths, legends, and conspiracies.
“To say that we are shaking things up is an understatement,” says Funcom SVP of Sales & Marketing Morten Larssen. “With ‘The Secret World’ we are showing gamers as well as the gaming industry that MMOs can be taken into new, exciting directions and that innovation in this genre is definitely not dead. Judging from the fantastic feedback we have already received from hundreds of thousands of beta testers, innovation is clearly the way forward and Funcom is excited to be breaking new ground."
If you didn't pre-order, there's still time to get in early - just head to the official site to pre-order, and you can play during what's left of the early access weekend.
The Secret World 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.
