    Got an email today regarding Funcom's supposedly upcoming MMO - set in the real world and somewhat up to date happenings. Took the online "test" and .... I am an initiate of the Illuminati...

    Here is a cut on the game from FuncOm:

    Imagine if every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend was true. Imagine if your worst nightmare came to life. Imagine a world where vampires hunt for mortal blood in dingy London nightclubs, where werewolves lurk in the sewers beneath Seoul, and where the undead prey on the living in the shadows of New York City. This is the premise for «The Secret World», Funcom's upcoming massively multiplayer online game set in the modern day real world.

    It certainly is a different idea - and it has caught my attention.

    Looks kind of interesting actually.
    Frankly, i'm quite sick of the whole elf and dragon MMO thing.

    Agreed - theres just so many elfs you can kill before it becomes ho hum :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :p. The limited in game screen shots have the dark themes of L4D. I havent seen any game play though.

    Hoping i get some Beta Keys for this, i would like to try it out


    :D

    I'm one of the dragon thingy. The modern time setting together with magic and horror stuffs really intrigue me

    I preferred the first three cinematic trailers, especially the dragon and templar ones, but this one still had a nice atmosphere and the giant monster was cool.

    Also good to finally have a release date from the developers.

    As have I Pinkeh. Not releasing until mid next year tho I think.

    Heres hoping the bland character faces will be greatly improved by then too, cause at the moment they look like androids :)

    Read the AOC forums if you want an indication of how it'll turn out.

    Yeh test gave me Illuminati twice so thats what I chose. If the games good then I'll probably try all 3 factions anyway. Facebook sign up is lame but w/e heres hoping we get some OCAU's in the beta :)

    I'm in as a Templar. I took the test the last time they had the personality checks, hopefully they didn't change the questions :paranoid:.
