Funcom and EA Partners have proudly announced today the official worldwide launch of The Secret World, punctuated by this amazing launch trailer! Those who pre-ordered were able to enjoy online world of myths, legends and conspiracies over the weekend, and reviews so far seem to be quite favorable for this fresh take on MMORPGs.
"We are incredibly proud of what we have created with The Secret World,” says Creative Director and Senior Producer Ragnar Tørnquist. “This is exactly the game we wanted to make, our vision has been fully realized, and we have never compromised on that vision. When the whole team uses their spare time to play a game they have spent their entire day working on, you know you have created something very, very special."
The Secret World blends elements of MMO gameplay with alternate reality gaming and social networking in an original setting with contemporary elements. The game is now available on PC worldwide for $49.99 USD, and comes with a free month of game time as well!
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.
