    Funcom has released information about The Secret World, a new game from director Regnar Tornquist. “It is great to finally be able to talk about The Secret World, after several years in the dark,” says senior producer and director Ragnar Tørnquist. “The real world is such a rich and fascinating setting for an MMO, and we are able to draw inspiration from ancient history, stories of lost cities and forgotten civilizations, folktales, urban legends, conspiracy theories and pop culture. We are building a game that mixes modern-day Earth with terrifying monsters, dark and occult magic, cool weapons and awesome powers – and it’s unlike anything you have ever seen before in an MMO.” The Secret World takes place now in our world.  You’ll explore locations and master what you want, from voodoo to black magic or martial arts and firearms.
