THE SECRET WORLD
ILLUMINATI TEASER VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE
 
Durham, USA – January 13th, 2012 – Funcom’s Week of the Illuminati continues with a brand new teaser video giving a unique glimpse into the world of the Illuminati, one of the three secret societies of The Secret World. In Funcom’s upcoming modern-day massively multiplayer online game, the Illuminati are undoubtedly the most secret of the three secret societies.
 
The Illuminati are invisible puppet-masters and corporate manipulators, and they crave power and wealth by any means necessary. They may have ancient roots, but they remain forever young and hungry. The Illuminati’s golden agents enjoy power, money and glamour – but the real power they offer you goes beyond that: Information worked from every civilian, government and clandestine organization in the world.
 
We would also like to remind everyone that we will be hosting an exclusive developer Q&A on our Facebook page on Sunday January 15th. Gamers everywhere can already start submitting their questions today via the ‘Questions & Answers’ app on the page.
 
'The Secret World' is consistently mentioned as one of the most anticipated MMOs in development, breaking new grounds and genre conventions by introducing a modern-day setting, a story-focused MMO experience, and a freeform progression system using no classes and no levels. Last year Funcom announced that over 500,000 gamers are now registered for the ongoing beta testing. 'The Secret World' is published by Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and will ship in April 2012.
