The Secret World Boast A Half Million Beta Sign-Ups

The Secret World

It may not be the highest-profile MMO out there, but Funcom's The Secret World has over half a million sign-ups for the beta. The game features a horror-heavy setting as well as three different factions to choose from.

“We are thrilled to see the amount of interest ‘The Secret World’ is generating among gamers and the press, and exceeding half a million beta registrations six months before release is definitely something we are proud of,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “The gamer interest in ‘The Secret World’ and the community size for the game is even greater than we experienced with ‘Age of Conan’ at the same stage of development. We expect the community size to keep on expanding at an ever faster pace in the coming months as we approach Open Beta and launch.”

I'm still a little on the fence about The Secret World. I love the idea of a horror MMO, but it seems like the multi-player space is so hard to really get right, no one (except Blizzard) really does it right. I guess that's why a Beta is the perfect venue for The Secret World. I'm signing up. What about you?
