OP  8/17/10 10:06:39 AM#1

Funcom has revealed that London will be the physical and spiritual home of the Templars in its newest game, The Secret World. PC-IGN caught up with Ragnar Tornquist, Lead Developer for The Secret World and talked with him about the London zone. While the Templars are exclusively based in London, the other two factions, the Illuminati and the Dragon will also have a presence there as well. According to Torquist, the London zone is the largest 'hub' in the game and will feature the most social  game mechanics.

These take the form of a pub called the Horned God, a theatre where players may "put on performances and be applauded or booed off the stage, a dance floor where you'll quite literally take part in dance-offs, and the Fight Club," which is home to friendly (but, we're told, bloody) sparring. " That doesn't mean, however, that the other hubs - Seoul and New York - are small. They form the foundation of the Illuminati and Dragon storylines and gameplay, and there are many exciting areas to explore and secrets to uncover."

Torquist also noted that parts of London will seem familiar and will mirror real life locations. However, he noted, some areas are purely fictional or license has been taken to alter the real world aspects a bit. In addition, there are 'otherworldly' places in London where a demonic presence is definitely felt. Tornquist says, "places where the walls between worlds are thin, and where darker things sometimes leak through. Places that haven't changed much in a thousand years, and where you'll meet more unsavoury sorts that don't like to mingle with the tourists."

Players choosing the Templar faction will begin the game's journey in London with initial quests and the city will feature areas that are 'Templar only'. Those without the correct identification are prohibited from entering.

The article is informative and interesting, so be sure to swing by PCIGN.com and check it out!

Thanks to Cyphers and Darkholme for the tip.

While the article definitely piques my interest so did all the information provided about AoC leading up to release.  After the terrible experience I had with that I will remain skeptical of any Funcom release until after launch.

best thing to do is wait till one month after the launch then start to dig for info about the game, I do that on everygame then I see if the game is worth of my money :P, I did that with aion and I still play it, and every MMo on launch have problems so its better wait a little

FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

While it is of course always good to be sceptical it should not be forgotten that while both MMOs were/are done by funcom, the internal development teams remain totally different groups.

Let go of my ears, I know what I'm doing!

I'm definitely interested.  Looking forward to open beta, which will hopefully be more open than AoC's open beta...

If someone has alot of friends, does that make them a socialist?

They should have researched their history better.  London makes no sense.  The modern Templar base is well known to be Glasgow Scotland.

I vaguely recalled that the TSW Templar faction wasn't the same as the historical Templars, so I did some searching and found it on the TSW wiki:

 

Despite the naming and symbolism which heavily references the Knights Templar, Funcom has stressed that this faction is purely fictional and the background of the faction begins during the time of Babylon, long before Christianity even existed. The Templars in-game won't be restricted to any religion or race.

 

Also, Ragnar Tornquist (game director, Dreamfall) talked about this issue in a Twitter interview where the following was stated:

brinstar: On TSW forums players are associating Templars with Christianity. Will the devs distance the faction from religion?
Ragnar: Templars aren't about Christianity. They're about Faith. Which is different. And also about kicking demon ass

The ease with which predictions are made on these forums:

Very interesting, although I'll probably be playing Illuminati myself.

I'm with ya, but there's no reason to single out Funcom alone.

I mean even though FC does have one of the poorest record at launches (AO and AoC), I'd be careful of any hyped up game.  Hype kills a game!

1Templars are different as was already said befor eme. They ar not "christians" in this  game.

2. The TSW!London is an alternate universe London. Its not identical to ours. its purposely different. its history, its secrets, its lore is different. There are many things identical to "our world", but for all purposes its an alternate universe london.

Well if that's the case then they will be easy for other factions to spot. "Just look for the guys in tacksuits that smell of Famous Grouse and deep fried pizza."

The more I hear of this game the more intrigued I am. It sounds like the developers are going to give us something to do besides just raid or run quest chains in this one, which will be a refreshing change.

However like a lot of other posters I can't set my hopes to high considering Funcom's previous track record.

INTJ, fun is fun except when it's not

I have done the test a few times at different times just to be sure of the results, everytime I came out as a Dragon.  So guess I will likely go with a Dragon at first even though the Templars interest me most, hehe. 

This game looks interesting.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

8/17/10 2:51:17 PM#16

This game still looks very interesting.  Time will tell more and more if I am going to invest time in it.  So many tasty things coming up in the next year as is.

I hope I get to enjoy the fight club as much as I get to enjoy Drunken Brawling in AoC. Oh wait I can only ware my drinking cape...no other effect.

Illuminati here too :)

 

Gonna judge it if I get in beta, and if I don't get in beta, I'll just buy the game and try it.. I can spare some coins to try this out, it's definitly one of the top mmo's on my list.

Yeah that's why they are all adorned with crosses and stuff. I don't buy it. Thanks for the info tho ;)

I'm between The Illuminati and The Dragon. I like The Illuminati style/fashion more but i prefer The Dragon philosophy over The Illuminati. OTOH Templars are impossible for me.
