Prepare yourselves, because the modern horror extravaganza known as The Secret World has been unveiled. At GDC '09, Funcom developers lifted the veil of this MMO to a select group of press, and Ten Ton Hammer was lucky enough to get a peek of the upcoming content as well. Although we didn't see a demo, we do have a vast selection of content to bring your way. To start, make sure you read the following TSW fact sheet, which depicts exactly the type of content you'll be seeing in the future MMO. Keep following Ten Ton Hammer as we gradually release all our TSW content!
An ancient, dreaming evil stirs. Dangerous creatures awaken. The Earth
is in mortal peril. The wonders and horrors of the secret world are
re-emerging into our reality. The time has come to take up arms in the
war between good and evil. Warriors and champions of Gaia, your
training is about to begin. Rise. You have been chosen.
the real world:
Discover the hidden places of the present-day world. Enter the thriving
urban environments of New York, London and Seoul, and enjoy the social
bustle of modern life. Then leave the cities behind and plunge into
epic adventures that will take you through grand locations across the
globe, from Egypt to New England, from ancient past to an apocalyptic
who you want to be:
There are no classes or levels. Experience the freedom of complete
character customization at every stage: flexible character creation,
unrestricted and almost limitless combinations of clothing and
accessories, and skills directly shaped by your actions during play.
Experience a reactive, fast-paced combat system that allows you to
defeat enemies using anything from martial arts to black magic, from
legendary armaments to modern firearms.
how you want to play:
The Secret World begins where other MMOs end. Start out as a modern-day
hero and fight terrifying monsters - and feel powerful and in control
from the moment you begin. Select from open-world missions that are
tailored to your play style, whether you want to simply kill monsters,
sabotage their lairs, embark on high-stake bounty hunts or investigate
the hidden mysteries and dark conspiracies behind the secret societies
that rule the world.
the secret world:
The divide between reality and the supernatural is weakening. What
begins as an evening at the local nightclub can become a night of
terror now that ancient creatures stalk the streets. Face unspeakable
horrors and explore unknown worlds beyond our own, or fight for control
of the hollow-earth as you unravel the truth behind the legends and
myths of our world.
