The Secret World's Three Secret Societies

Updated Thu, Sep 10, 2009 by Ethec

The pre-PAX reveals introduced us to the three overarching factions that, as Funcom says, are loosely united in their fight against evil, but divided in the pursuit of power. Basically, the self-righteous Templars, the bad-boy Illuminati, and the chaotic Dragons are vying to see who holds sway once the darker days have come to an end.

Players will have to join up with one of these factions right at the start of the game, so check out the video for an in-depth look at the three secret societies of The Secret World. When you're finished, check out the second video in the series: a first ever look at PvP in The Secret World!
