The Secret World
« on: 12 August, 2012, 12:36:57 am »
A new MMO set in the modern day.

Players belong to one of 3 factions : The Dragon, The Templars or The Illumati. Each has its own agenda, but this being an MMO all things lead to the same places.

Nice touches are that the first are is Kingsmouth...read Innsmouth , filled with zombies and deep ones. The music is atmospheric and suitably creepy.

Where this game deviates from the normal cookie cutter idea of skill trees and levels is that there are no levels!
Characters must decide on 2 weapons: sword/shotgun, pistol,chaos magic and so on to make unique attacks. Each weapon is capable of setting different states, wounded, impaired etc and do more damage when these are in place. This is no WOW rip off but a game that requires a bit of thought as a pattern of attacks against one group of enemies may not work on another.

A simple crating system allows players to make their own weapons, so powerful in some cases that they need to "grow" into them.

all in all the best MMO in a very long time.....(i say that now)
