"The Secret World" is being developed by Funcom.
Funcom's long-awaited modern-day massively multiplayer online game The Secret World officially launched worldwide as of Tuesday July 3rd.
The game unofficially launched Friday of last week when early access began, opening the doors to the online world of myths, legends and conspiracies for all pre-order customers to enjoy during the weekend. The company says the MMO's official launch happened smoothly.
"We are incredibly proud of what we have created with The Secret World," says Creative Director and Senior Producer Ragnar Tørnquist. "This is exactly the game we wanted to make, our vision has been fully realized, and we have never compromised on that vision. When the whole team uses their spare time to play a game they have spent their entire day working on, you know you have created something very, very special."
The Secret World presents players with a modern-day alternate reality where all the myths, legends and conspiracies of our world are true, and where hellish monsters threaten real-world locations such as Transylvania, Egypt and New England. When first entering the game players must enlist in a secret society - the Illuminati, the Dragon or the Templars - and engage in a battle not only for the future of our world, but also for the power to control its governments and corporations to further their cause.
The PC game was developed by Funcom and co-published by EA.
