Funcom has launched a new profile and leader board service for new MMO The Secret World today called Chronicle. By logging in here players can view a complete record of their journey through the game, as well as character profiles and leader boards covering both PvE and PVP. It's neat as it lets you size your character up against others by 'following them (profiles updated every 24 hours).
I checked my own profile out this morning and learned that I have a long way to go. The top three leader boards (zombies killed, total xp earned, and golems killed) make my scores look crappy. Still, it's neat to see where I rank. I really enjoyed being able to see where I stand with my abilities and skills at a glance, in a web browser.
Today marks the kick-off of the public beta phase, which means that the feature set is still limited, but Funcom says that it will continue to grow as the game and its community does.
Funcom says that this is just the beginning, as they have many more features planned. Look for further in-game integration as well as ties to mobile devices and social networks in the future.
