Massively-multiplayer online games (or MMOs as I think they should be called) require a certain level of commitment that I just can’t provide, but based on Eric Eckstein’s preview of Funcom’s upcoming The Secret World, I might have to reconsider my avoidance of this genre. Case in point:
“While the game will include starting areas for New York, London and Seoul, the first revealed area for The Secret World is Kingsmouth, a New England town inspired by the likes of Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft. A fog has rolled in, sealing off the town and claiming the locals which have been replaced by demonic creatures.”
Yeah. You definitely want to check out the full preview.
