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.

If you really want to get deep into The Secret World, you'll have to solve a puzzle at DarkDaysAreComing.com. Correctly solve the puzzle and you'll be treated to some concept art and a timer that has 4 hours to go as of this posting. If you're stuck, we suggest you hit up the game's new forums. We have to say, the concept of The Secret World is very intriguing. We'll keep you posted on its progress.
