    So it seems the Norwegian based studio Funcom is continuing with their The Secret World MMO project.

    A new trailer is out and I have to say it looks quite cool:

    Some of you may remember the internet puzzle that lead to the release of the teaser from 2007:

    I am crossing my fingers and hoping they have learnt from their mistakes when it came to Age of Conan - the hype was better than the game, and now when the game is catching up with the hype a lot of potential players have turned their backs on the game already ...


    I hope that will not be the case with The Secret World. I will keep my eyes open for sure.

    For those hungry for information here are the official forums: http://www.darkdemonscrygaia.com/index.php

    I've been looking forward to this since I first saw the riddle two years ago.. and everything they say about it makes me nerdgasm. And the new trailer kicks ass... hopefully they'll do better with this than with AoC.

    Funcom has released more info on The Sercet World and this is starting to become juicy :)

    Second trailer:
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45aZFzCmjkc[/youtube]

    The gaming press was shown the game behind closed doors, and so far only 4 screenshots have been released, and while they are not too revealing this is atleast a start:





    Now what is a bit more interesting is the info about the game itself. No levels, no classes, just the player evolving according to your choices ...

    There are three secret societies though (factions), and players have been invited to take the initiation test to see what secret society would fit them the most. Upon completion of the test the players can choose a secret society to join, and by doing so become eligible to receive keys for the Beat test.

    I am Dragon - what are you? Take the test here (top left, second from the left - Initiation Test)


    A very good interview is also available at ZAM. They interviewed Ragnar Tørnquist (Producer Director) and Martin Bruusgaard (Lead Designer) and the whole thing can be read here

    I have to say an MMO based on our contemporary world (London, New York and Seoul so far as starting areas) but with the assumption that everything you have heard in legends and fairytales may be true to a certain extent is really getting me interested ... :)

    CGI teaser trailers for yet another MMO don't really pull me in, at all.

    It'll be an MMO which means, grinding, fetch quests, never-ending journeys for "phat loot," and assholes who gank you in PVP.

    I'll pass, thanks.

    It's the first MMO I'm really looking forward to.
    Sounds like a Nephilim rip-off : I love it.

    Hope they pick me for the beta-test.

    After the dreadfull releases that was AoC and anarchy online I take any annoucements from Funcom with a grain of salt. Unless I hear damned wicked awesome good things about this game I will not care. And I do mean after it has been properly launched. That is after the launch has been postponed a few times.
