Funcom announces new MMO, The Secret World
Perhaps you've heard about the mysterious poem that hides a game announcement. Either someone cracked the code or Funcom decided to spill the beans anyway. Funcom, creators of the upcoming Age of Conan, has announced that it is working on a brand new MMO for the Xbox 360 and PC. Titled, The Secret World, the game takes place in modern times on earth. That's right, no fantasy or sci-fi settings here. The game centers around modern mythology, conspiracy, and mystery. People are already tying the game to the Knights Templar, so this sounds like the kind of game that mystery buffs, conspiracy theorists, and Da Vinci Code fans should find fascinating.
