An interview with the Star Wars Battlefront II Designers on Loot Boxes, Criterion’s input, and chickens
Funcom, a world-leading game developer and publisher of online games, has unveiled a brand new trailer video as well as a new website for the upcoming, modern-day massively multiplayer online game The Secret World. The new video offers gamers a unique glimpse into the world, the monsters, the myths, and the gameplay of the much anticipated online game. In The Secret World players get to play the character they want to play without being limited to classes or levels, as they adventure through modern-day, real-world locations.
This gorgeous looking MMO from Funcom and EA seems to be getting a lot less “Secret” recently. Let’s hope the trend continues.
Funcom today also launched a brand new website at www.thesecretworld.com, which offers both newcomers and veteran community members new and exciting material. Funcom will continue to update the site with news, information and media as the development of the game progress.
“We are very pleased with the current state of the game,” says CEO Trond Arne Aas. “We had the opportunity to show the game live to the press at last week’s Game Developers Conference, and we look forward to start testing the game with an external audience in the next couple of months.”
The Secret World is due to be released for the PC at some point within the next year. Judging from the trailer, it certainly looks like something worth waiting for.
By day I play video games, test video games or just simply write about them. By night I fight crime on the streets of London as a masked vigilante known only to a select few ... damn SECRET identity. Could never get the hang of that.
I've been writing about video games for about 10 years now, and playing them for even longer, starting off with a Spectrum ZX passed down to me in about 1988. Yes, I used to play games that came on cassettes. Yes, they were AWESOME!
I've been writing for God is a Geek since October 2010 and loving every minute of it, aside from that I write for my own website and work as a video game tester for Testology. So, yeah, I'm pretty much living the life of a gamer, and I don't intend stopping anytime soon thank you very much.
Unless I run out of money, then we might have a problem.
