Myths, Mystery, and the Modern World

This week the press embargo was lifted regarding the hands-on event for The Secret World. As a result, a lot of articles are coming out on gaming review sites. Each new tidbit about this game gets me more excited (if that’s even possible). The Secret World is an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). It’s set in the modern world, but a world where everything is true. All the myths, the conspiracies.

It’s not your traditional kill-10 quest system. There will be those, but there will also be investigation missions, sabotage missions, 3 faction PVP. And all saturated in deep, intriguing story telling. The man behind it is Ragnar Tornquist, who did The Longest Journey and Dreamfall games.

The release date has finally been announced: June 19, 2012. I know what I’ll be doing this summer! Will anyone be playing with me?

PS: I’m approaching 500 blog posts! I have an idea for something to giveaway in celebration, so stay tuned.
