If you're unaware of Funcom
's newest project, The Secret World
, it's about time you knew that the secret is about to be unveiled. Forget the stigma associated with Funcom and Age of Conan
, and consider the fact that The Secret World
comes to us from Ragnar Tørnquist
, the man behind The Longest Journey
. The unraveling of clues that lead up to this game's reveal is impressive, but not as impressive as the fact that The Secret World's community
is comprised of some of the most intelligent gamers you'll find this side of EVE
. We have games that are hardcore for strategists, games that are hardcore for economists, games that are hardcore for the combat-savvy, but with The Secret World
, we will finally get an MMO that was made for the hardcore conspiracy theorists, history buffs and puzzle solvers out there.
Case in point, a recent teaser video
was released showing certain decipherable codes that led to a new Alternate Reality Game website called Sanctuary of Secrets
. Leave it up to the TSW
community to crack the codes and discover the hidden secrets. Of course Funcom has not officially commented on their involvement with this site, but it goes to show the passion brewing in the people anticipating this game. Ever since our demo at GDC
last month, we've been itching to let our readers know what's in store. Tomorrow the embargo will lift and everything we know will be revealed, so stay tuned!
