Funcom has released a brand new teaser video giving a unique glimpse into the world of the Illuminati, one of the three secret societies of The Secret World – set to be published by EA games later this year.
In Funcom’s upcoming modern-day massively multiplayer online game, the Illuminati are undoubtedly the most secret of the three secret societies. The Illuminati are invisible puppet-masters and corporate manipulators, and they crave power and wealth by any means necessary. They may have ancient roots, but they remain forever young and hungry. The Illuminati’s golden agents enjoy power, money and glamour – but the real power they offer you goes beyond that: Information worked from every civilian, government and clandestine organization in the world.
The Secret World’ is consistently mentioned as one of the most anticipated MMOs in development, breaking new grounds and genre conventions by introducing a modern-day setting, a story-focused MMO experience, and a freeform progression system using no classes and no levels. Last year Funcom announced that over 500,000 gamers are now registered for the ongoing beta testing.
The Secret World is published by EA and will ship in April 2012.
