Funcom has broken the silence on its latest MMO, The Secret World, which is inspired by history and mythology, modern conspiracy theories and ancient mysteries. PAX was the show of choice for the firm, who also passed over all the info and first movie to your friendly neighborhood CVG.
Three secret societies will play a fundamental role in The Secret World and this is part of the PAX reveal. Players will join one of three secret societies when they first start playing. These are the Illuminati, the Dragon and the Templars. Each secret society will have their own morals, ambitions and ways of pursuing power. What secret society you choose to join will not only determine where your adventure starts in the world but it will also have several other major gameplay implications.
