More On: The Secret World
The Secret World is definitely something different when it comes to free-to-play MMOs, and I'd say being unique and intriguing is a must in a genre dominated by something as generic as WoW. The eldritch horror RPG is marking its one year anniversary with a brand new chapter--Issue #7: A Dream to Kill. The teaser trailer doesn't reveal much, but a nursery full of creepy dolls standing around a corpse with a meat cleaver in its neck is never a good sign. Hit the jump for more details.

“The last issue had a distinct Indiana Jones feel to it, and if I am to compare Issue #7 to something similar, I would probably draw parallels to James Bond and similar spy thrillers,” says Joel Bylos, Creative Director at Funcom. “From fighting on top of moving trains to battling skyscraper-sized monsters in the middle of Times Square; ‘The Secret World’ has become synonymous with the fresh, new and unexpected. ‘A Dream to Kill’ is no exception, in fact I think players will be more surprised than ever!”
