The Secret World: Dungeon Preview - The Facility

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,659MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Funcom has partnered with MMORPG.com to bring our readers the first information ever revealed about dungeons in The Secret World. We've got never-before-seen images and information about a Transylvanian dungeon called The Facility. Find out all about it in our exclusive preview.

In the 1950s the Soviet space program was in full gear. The imperative to be first in exploring new reaches was fueled by national pride and dreams of distant galaxies. But not every branch of the program was dedicated to traditional forms of rocketry and exploration.

Not all stars are in the sky.

    I really like the graphics for this game, I have to click on the images above to see if they are concept art or ingame graphics. They usually are ingame graphics.

    Looks like TSW will have plenty of interesting dungeons at launch, looking forward to trying them out.

    You know what, I think that I may give it another try. With a friend this time around. Maybe I can pass on questing with him while doing instances. Will see.

  • JaedorJaedor Denver, COPosts: 1,140Member Uncommon

    Yeah this sounds very cool. Really looking forward to launch!

    Looks pretty darn good, can't wait to try it out after release. Different is definitely good <imo> and I did enjoy my time in CB.

    Currently I having fun in tera, but this game is next on my list.

    OMFG this sounds like a wet dream to the power 10!!!

     

    This strikes me as a really innovative game on a number of levels, the most obvious being the setting.

     

    I'm VERY tempted to try this game but have kinda been put off by reports that it's very involved. In the past I'd have loved that but these days I don't have the time to spend 5 hours figuring out a puzzle and tend to primarily use my brain at work, lol! The ones in DDO are just right but anything more challenging and I'm gonna lose interest.

     

    Still, I think I'll give the beta a shot if I can free up room on this titchy SSD...

    It's definitely involved, but if you're good at puzzles they take just as long as a normal mission in the game.

     

    PvP will be the deal breaker for me. If all's good this weekend, I'll pre-order!

  • RohnRohn Saint Peters, MOPosts: 3,740Member Uncommon

    This sounds pretty involved, and has a good story to it.  Looking forward to giving it a shot.

    Don't worry. if you're stuck the community (at least in beta on my server- Chimaera) is very helpful and there is actually a player-help channel.  Instead of spoiling things, all the people who answered me PM'd me, not ruining the game.   Or you can open the ingame browser and get answers on the internet.

    Really looking forward to this as well. Each beta has impressed me more and more. :)

    the Official Forums?

    I don't think there is an official game forum that isn't full of QQ

  • millsdomillsdo Arlington, TNPosts: 18Member

    Yeah, I was skeptical. However, I played the last beta and ordered right away. The graphics are really amazing and  the puzzles are very cool as well.

  • DannyGloverDannyGlover Portland, ORPosts: 1,277Member

    Man I might actually run some dungeons in an MMO again.

    I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

    One of the things i enjoy most about this game is the possabilitys.  There are so many and it gets completely off the hum drum of WoW and Rift grind ..so over that.  Its gotta whole Silent Hill light feel.  That in its own right is refreshing.  VERY sucked into the story line.

  • hkharpsterhkharpster PA Furnace, PAPosts: 11Member

    Funcom needs to make the combat and movement animations better, they still look so bad robotic and clumsy. Just? doesn't look like a natural moving person. And that jump dear lord :/ Everything about this game seems and looks awesome other then the combat and the animations. It would be one thing if you weren't fighting a lot but its an MMO lol combat has to look and feel good cause your going to be doing it all the time.

    Did you try the latest beta? cause from the first two, and to this latter one, there are many improvements to animation and combat. To me it felt like a whole different game to be honest... Time will tell come friday though, if this game is worthy of a pre-order, but I have a feeling it is
