With the game due for release in April 2012, it's quite an achievement to have 500,000 players sign up for your beta program. As I've mentioned before, The Secret World's mix of a modern day setting, three distinct factions and a classless levelling system maybe enough to make The Secret World stand out from other MMO's.
The Secret World will start accepting entrants into the beta closer to it's official launch, so if you want to get in on the action, head over to the official website and sign up. One thing to note, you are asked to register with your Facebook account for the "full experience."
