 Post subject: The Secret World - new MMO
PostPosted: Mon Oct 10, 2011 9:24 pm 
I don't know if anyone else mentioned this upcoming MMO yet (I haven't found anything posted about it). I have only recently learned of it's existence and I have to say I am most excited about a MMO than I ever was. I think the release plan is for April 2012.

Although elves and dwarves and general fantasy settings are my likings, this one seems quite revolutionary in story and setting.

The first time I saw anything related to it was the 2011 gamescom video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKdGI2rXKYg) , but I had no idea that's a MMO.

Recently discovered these 3 videos that made me search for more about this game:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A4i12-yhAA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsLXQEeLiI0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDj7ojo0j4U

This is a video about the game - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQQq7qNgZMQ

If you find this interesting, this is the official website with more info on factions / gameplay and much more - http://www.thesecretworld.com/

And this is some actual gameplay footage that reveals some of the world, npc's and gameplay mechanics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk57oisDDJ0

Also a very good game FAQ can be found here - http://kairava.org/ref_display.php?id=10

This game looks so promising, I hope it won't be a disappointment as many others (I have to say I am quite picky and did not find anything worth spending more than a month on than WoW so far; plus I don't have as much time as I would like for MMO's :)).

Yes I have and I love the idea of the setting and the complete freedom the game is supposed to give.

I am already signed up for the Templars :)

I agree that the Secret World is one of the most promising MMOs coming out there.
So far the pre-release spotlights by magazines and websites have been good, even if not actually enthusiastic. I guess time will tell. FunCom disappointed me so much with Age of Conan that I am now somewhat more prudent when it comes to them...
That said, I certainly hope to be surprised and I would go straight away for a Templar!

Main problem I guess, is that there are too many extremely promising games coming out within the next year, and many of them MMOs. Too bad I have such little time to play, as most other Elders, actually!
My best bets still go hands down to Guild Wars 2, anyway. All those who are trying GW2 demos at Gaming conventions say it's mindblowingly high quality and innovative. But only time will tell, I guess! :)

I've been following this MMO ever since they first started talking about it publicly. To be honest I have mixed feelings. Like Lyrael, I am also doubtful towards Funcom after the Age of Conan fiasco, however at the same time, I really enjoyed Anarchy Online back in it's glory days (Funcom's first MMO). So we'll see. A refreshing theme to be sure though!

I am also thinking this game looks promising. It reminds me of Anarchy Online with the skills system and no Levels.

I have a Templar character on the RP-Server.

Just FYI to those of you who are not in Facebook, quite a lot of our Elders have created a guild for us in The Secret World. I myself am not playing it since my machine refuses to run it, but from what I can tell in our Facebook group, those folks are having a blast :-)

Templar guild on RP server Arcadia

I've asked those folks who know best to come and give more info for y'all who don't use FB. :-)
