The Secret World Unveiled, Fact Sheet Published
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.
Enter 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 future.
Be 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.
Play 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.
Enter 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.
