If you like MMOs, but you're sick of elves, spells, spaceships and wookiees, The Secret World might be the MMO for you. The upcoming game draws more influence from H.P. Lovecraft's horror than J.R.R.Tolkien's fantasy. MMO expert Leah Jackson played the game recently, and explains its premise like this:
"We last saw The Secret World at GDC 2011, and since then not much seems to have changed regarding the game's design. If you're not familiar with The Secret World, all you need to know is that in this world, everything is real. When I say everything, I mean every myth, every urban legend, every conspiracy theory based on history is true. It will be up to the players, who choose to be in one of three factions, to participate in the war for world domination against these monsters from the past, present, and future."
