The Secret World is nearly here, and those of you who pre-ordered the game can start accessing it this Friday. Based in the modern world, TSW is an MMO that features a lot of Love-craftian type themes, including zombies, vampires, and demons.
In addition to choosing one of the game’s various classes, you can select from the Templars, Illuminati, and the Dragons, all of which will be featured in the game’s Faction PVP system.
The Secret World is going to start off as a subscription based game, so it’ll be interesting to see if they can maintain said model without converting to free to play (like Rift has). That isn’t to say that Free to Play is a failure in any way, as both models have their advantages.
