More On: The Secret World
All this week, Funcom is doing a "Week of the Dragon", a week that focuses on the Dragon secret society, one of three secret societies represented in the upcoming MMO The Secret World (the other two being Templar and Illuminati).  To kick things off, Funcom has released six new screenshots from the game.  You can also sign up for the beta over at

Once on the site you can check out the game's trailer and sign up for the beta.  This requires you to join one of the three societies.  Not sure which to choose?  Take the "personality test".  Keep in mind that once you choose a society, you can't go back.  The test determined that I'd be best as an Illuminati, so that's what I went with.  Hopefully I'll get into the beta.

‘The Secret World’ kicks
off Week of the Dragon

- A full week of inside information and new media about the Dragon secret society –

Durham, USA – October 17, 2011 – Today Funcom kicks off Week of the Dragon; a full week of focus on the Dragon secret society. Throughout the week, all eyes will be on the chaotic and secretive Dragon society, one of three secret societies represented in the upcoming, modern-day MMO ‘The Secret World’.

Which secret society are you? Sign up for the beta and join a secret society by taking the initiation test!

The Dragon is perhaps the most mysterious of the three in-game secret societies; based in Seoul, the focus of the Dragon is to orchestrate change through chaos. Throughout the week Funcom will reveal something new about the Dragon secret society, ranging from articles, artwork, screenshots, video and an exclusive Q&A session hosted on the official ‘The Secret World’ Facebook page. These exclusive items will be available on select media sites, as well as on ‘The Secret World’ official website.

“Revealing new things about the Dragon is exciting for us, as the very nature of the Dragon is to stay hidden and create chaos behind the scenes to reach their ultimate goal,” Says Ragnar Tørnquist, Senior Producer and Director for ‘The Secret World’. “Not only is this a great opportunity to shed some light on the Dragon, but for a huge number of people who have already joined the Dragon through our initiation test, it’s an opportunity to find out more about their chosen secret society.”

Funcom kicks off the Week of the Dragon by releasing six new exclusive screenshots.
