Durham, USA – March 23rd, 2010 – Funcom is pleased to reveal brand new screenshots, artworks and in-game video material for its upcoming modern-day massively multiplayer online role-playing game The Secret World'. The new assets have been made available as the embargo date for the GDC 2010 presentations was lifted today; allowing journalists who attended the showings in San Francisco to report from what was the first ever showing of actual in-game gameplay. Gamers can expect the gaming medias' first impressions of `The Secret World' to appear on websites throughout the world this week.
"We are really excited to show off gameplay for the first time; giving press and players a peek into what we are working on is as exciting for us as it is for them," says Director and Producer of The Secret World, Ragnar Tørnquist. "'The Secret World' is such a massive game and although we have only shown a small glimpse of it so far, we believe it gives players a unique look into how the game will look, feel and play."
Among the assets made available today is a short video that features the first in-game footage from the game ever released to the public. But there is more to come: the video only teases at a longer and more substantial video that will be made available on GameTrailers.com this week on Thursday 25th.
`The Secret World' is Funcom's third massively multiplayer game, having previously developed the award-winning `Anarchy Online' and the best selling new MMO of 2008 `Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures'. The game features a modern-day, real world setting where every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend is true, and where thousands of players from all over the world must join one of three secret societies in the fight against darkness – and each other.
