The Secret World Reveals Illuminati Backstory and Ranking System Details

Posted Tue, Jan 10, 2012 by Martuk

Day 2 of Week of the Illuminati has arrived for The Secret World. Today’s reveal offers a look into the backstory of one of the better known secret societies – the illuminati. Considered to be the “invisible puppet masters”, the Illuminati manipulate governments and events from behind the scenes and enjoy being in control.

The Illuminati recognizes the importance of history, but does not dwell on the past. It’s ushering in the New World Order. The future is nothing but a bright frontier ready to be conquered and controlled.

Along with the backstory reveal, today’s update also offers a look at the Illuminati ranking system and what kind of challenges players can expect to face under the banner of the Illuminati.
