    TSW is a themepark with certain elements of a sandpark, like no classes and levels. It's content is more open than regular themeparks, but there are still quests to do.

    Dreamworld. It was originally developed for AoC and then they made quite a few changes to it for TSW and have backported some of them to AoC. It has for instance dynamic lighting which for instances changes the aggro range of mobs. All textures and such are really high-rez, so you won't hearing the complaint from SWTOR about blurry textures. I have tested it on a low-end cpu and mid-end graphicsard and get around 40 fps. I have a friend who has a Radeon 6970 and a 3 year old cpu and he gets 60fps with everything at max at 1920x1080. In other words: low requirements for very good performance.

    The newest version of the Dreamworld version, look at AoC's graphics, its like that.

    Not quite true. Most of AoC is designed for the older version of the Dreamworld engine which doesn't take advangate of the much better lighting model in the new version. Only the newer parts of AoC like House of Crom uses all the capabilities of the engine.

    I have heard that 1/3 of the game is "endgame" at launch, typical MMO's has something like 10% of the game as "endgame" at launch. The Secret World will probably get more and more "sandboxy" in nature as new content is added to the endgame.

    As one of the developers said it: ''Its all endgame and there is no endgame''. What i meant by open is that you can start doing some missions in Kingsmouth, then some in Egypt, then some in Transylvania etc. There is no themepark train guiding you through the content, you decide yourself where you want to go. Ofcourse you may run into some content that is too hard for you, but then you can just do some other things. Something similiar to Skyrim.

    This is quite a necro, but I did post in it earlier saying I would take a wait and see approach to both GW2 and TSW, and I did.  I'm happy to say that I'm very happy with GW2 and TSW.  Both are much better than I expected and have been fun.  I probably won't ever go back to AoC, but I'm more than happy with TSW.  It also has a great community.  It has one of the best global chat channels of any game I play.

    Well odd, the person above me deleted his post.  Was it accidental necromancy? :p

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.
