During the EA Press Conference in Cologne, Germany, it was announced that the mystical modern day MMO being developed by Funcom, The Secret, will ship and be digitally distributed for PC in April 2012. Funcom are best known for The Age of Conan MMO and The Longest Journey.
The Secret World pits secret societies against one another for total domination, but in a world where every myth, legend, and conspiracy is true, the three secret societies have a lot more to deal with than each other. Excited about the announcement, Senior Producer and Creative Director Ragnar Tørnquist had a bit to say about it:
“It has never been more rewarding working on The Secret World than it is now. The progress we are making in development allows the whole team to really enjoy just playing the game for hours on end. We are all looking forward to bringing in players through upcoming betas, and their feedback will be crucial to the further development of the game as we progress toward the April 2012 launch.”
They also announced they would open beta registration on August 26th thorough a unique social media campaign. So those interested, wait and keep an eye on their main site.
