The Secret World Trailer


The makers of the Conan MMO are trying their hand at a conspiracy MMO. This looks pretty cool.

I just wish it wasn’t an MMO.

  1. This does indeed look pretty cool. But, as you said, MMO…and I swore an oath never to play MMOs after I quit wow (again). It’s odd though, I enjoyed the trailer and the atmosphere of this a lot more before they started showing the giant mutant critters. The monsters sort of made me lose interest; the haunted, creepy island felt more imaginative.

  2. I love the concept, even for an MMO. The faction backstory, and art on their website is pretty enticing too, so props to their concept folks.

    The gameplay footage they’ve put out so far is pretty underwhelming though. It’d be tough to incorporate real world weaponry, alongside all the magical/melee stuff they’ve got going on… but it doesn’t really look like either are well done at this point.

    Coming from the same folks that made Conan, I’m also worried they’ll focus too much on PvP … folklore, myth, conspiracy theory ect ect is rife ground for tons of great game content. But if there’s constantly two other factions of players looking to gank, well, PvE fans might not get to enjoy any of it.
