Funcom announced that over 500,000 people have registered for beta for their upcoming mysterious MMO, The Secret World. Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas said, “We are thrilled to see the amount of interest ‘The Secret World’ is generating among gamers and the press, and exceeding half a million beta registrations six months before release is definitely something we are proud of.”
The Secret World aims to create an unique environment that players haven’t seen before in the genre.
Taking place in modern day, The Secret World explores all the hidden truths, myths, and the power behind the scenes while giving players total control over their characters development with multiple skills to level up and explore with no restrictions.
