Desert locations are always a bitch, but in upcoming MMO The Secret World it's going to be the biggest bitch. A new trailer shows off this location, which is set in Egypt. If the heat and the dudes with rocket launchers isn't enough, try on the black goop coming out from the ground. Or the freaky beasts. Or zombies from ancient times. This makes your typical desert level look like a cake walk.
For as hellish as it sounds, Funcom has done a nice job with the visuals here. You know you have a good looking game when you can make the desert look nice.
Beta registration for The Secret World is going on now.
