The Secret World dev diary talks story and mission types

Funcom’s upcoming MMO The Secret World has always come across to me as a sort of Vampire: The Masquerade type of world except for, you know, vampires.

After watching this dev diary, I still don’t really know what to expect from the game. But then again, this is from the guys that gave us the amazing The Longest Journey, the disappointing Dreamfall, and the soon to be free-to-play Age of Conan. If anything, they are not short of a history with large and creative game worlds. And that monster at the end looks a bit like a proper Cenobite, so that’s a good sign.

Are any of you interested in The Secret World, or is it just going to be Guild Wars 2 or The Old Republic if you’re not into World of Warcraft? The premise is interesting enough, but I wish this wasn’t an MMO because that means I’ll never play it.
