Funcom announced today that it would be bringing a new massively multiplayer title to both the PC and Xbox 360. Titled The Secret World, the game supposedly encompasses "history and mythology, modern conspiracy theories and ancient mysteries." Just how all of that will mesh into a cohesive MMO experience remains to be seen.
The game's premise presupposes that a secret world exists within ours, where monsters and ancient beings vie for control over all existence. In this version of our earth, modern cities house eerie secrets. Players will find themselves a part of some of the greatest conspiracies of the modern era as they wage war against the minions of evil.
"We believe there are millions of gamers out there who want to explore something beyond traditional fantasy and sci-fi games," said Trond Arne Aas of Funcom. "'The Secret World' is just that - a fantastic new setting that will fuel the imagination of online gamers, and keep players busy for years. We have a golden opportunity to bring something fresh and exciting to the genre, and we firmly believe the game is an ideal extension of Funcom's MMO portfolio."
"We started envisioning this contemporary online world more than ten years ago, and as the years passed the ideas grew and improved," said Ragnar Tørnquist, Producer and Director of 'The Secret World'. "We always wanted a different kind of online world, something scary and contemporary, something deeper and closer to our reality. Our goal now is to create a detailed world where players feel empowered and part of something big, something mystical and epic."
Produced at Funcom's studios in Oslo and Beijing, The Secret World has been in development for almost one year, and is currently said to be playable. No release date has yet been given for the game.
