Preview: Reinventing the MMO with The Secret World
by Daniel Starkey

The MMO space has been steadily filling up since people realized just how much money Blizzard is actually making. Many have tried to break into that space, but most have failed. Funcom has a pretty consistent history of bringing solid titles to market -- nothing necessarily groundbreaking, but they work.

When The Secret World was announced, though, people got legitimately excited. Here, we had an MMO taking place not in space or some generic fantasy land but in the modern day, with a story running parallel to our own world. Here are a few of my initial thoughts on the The Secret World.

Funcom's The Secret World is distinguished by the fact it's an MMO that I actually care about. I was drawn to the title as soon as the early trailers rolled out, intrigued by the modern day setting and enthralled by some incredible creature design. 

Electronic Arts was presenting the game at PAX and gave us a look, so I snapped up the opportunity to dig a little deeper into a game that looks a little bit like Dragon Age, only with more guns and Cthulhu-headed squirmbeasts.
