Default The Secret World has a RELEASE DATE! Get your X-files on.

June 19th is the release date, and by then it will have be in development for 7 years. Finally an MMO gets the polish it deserves.

News: The embargo has been lifted on the recent press immersion event. The intertubes are now sprawling with new articles about TSW and journalist impressions of the game after having real in depth hands-on time with the game.

This page has links to all the articles: link

some quotes:

IGN – English

"The Secret World is a paranoid person's paradise, lending credence to the most insane conspiracy theories you could possibly conceive of, and slotting them cleverly into an enjoyably campy world."



CVG – English

"...this is genuinely the first MMO for a long time that I want to play, and it's hard not to list its strengths: The underused classless structure, meaning all players can always play together. The superbly scripted story..."



Massively – English

"The Secret World is a gorgeous game. It's fun to play, and the monster design is imaginative and fresh."



Destructoid - English

"The Secret World is quite different from other MMOs with its classless system and unconventional mission design, but these are also among its greatest strengths. The sense of freedom, smart writing, and modern setting are also major plusses. They come together to make the first MMO I've been excited about in a very long time."

Silly me, forgot to post this here. One of the more informative videos yet:


And an update: current development focus is on animations, finally. I've been cringing from those animations for quite some time, it has really been the one nagging complaint I've had from the footage they've shown.

Shit yeah. This game looks amazing. Now I have to decide between this and Guild Wars 2, god damnit.

GW2 doesn't have a subscription fee, so I don't see why not buy that as well as a 2nd more casual game next to TSW. It's what I'm going to do.

GW2 character progression puts the campaign to 1 week of 4-5 hour game play per day, which is really short, and at the end of that there's only going to be a few (admittedly fantastic) PvP hamster wheels to get on at end game.

While TSW is probably the meatiest and longest MMORPG in history in terms of story lines, judging from the beta reports.

This can be answered by reading their FAQ. "When will it be released? When we believe it is ready"

This now brings me to the old Grolsch adverts "SCHTOP SCHTOP tis not ready yet!"

As much as I hate the MMO gaming world, this one seems to have a bit more flair to it and I am considering checking it out, I got bored with the others so, hopefully they will put out a demo of some kind, just can't ever get into these things, but this one looks more promising.

My thoughts exactly. I love how they're making a "thinking man's game", and don't lead players by the nose in game.
