exclusive future beta access to the game. Initiates will also be kept

"The secret societies are integral to ‘The Secret
World‘," says
Producer and Director Ragnar Tørnquist. "Players must
eventually pick a
side in the conflict. By revealing the three societies - and at the
same time
keeping some exciting new features under wraps - we provide players
with the
opportunity to dig deeper into the conspiracies and urban legends, and
to learn
more about these famous secret societies, before making their final
when the game launches."
