If you pre-order The Secret World, Funcom's new sci-fi MMORPG, you'll get guaranteed access to all Beta Weekends starting on May 11, 2012. The modern-day MMO itself will launch on June 19, 2012 exclusively for the PC.
“The Beta Weekends are a fantastic opportunity for players to familiarize themselves with the game,” says Funcom SVP of Sales & Marketing Morten Larssen. “With guaranteed access to every single one of these weekends, our pre-order players will have the unique opportunity to truly immerse themselves in the universe that surrounds The Secret World – starting six weeks before launch!”
Aside from Beta access, if you pre-order The Secret World you'll get early access to the game. This means you'll get to jump in to The Secret World up to four days of earlier than the rest of the the community. Speaking purely from a selfish perspective, this means I'll get a jump start on naming my characters whatever I want, which is important when it comes to a MMO. You're going to be with that character for a long time, you know?
You'll also get an exclusive in-game item that provides and experience boost, and an in-game t-shirt with a unique monster design. But that's not all! Funcom's also giving out a pet, (they know the way to my wallet, don't they?) either a wolf, cat, or hound, to help you out in combat.
