One of Funcom's most talked about goals for their games is to empower players by giving them 'sandbox-like' tools to create the things they want. In The Secret World Issue 4, the team aims to do just that with the Albion Theatre. We have an exclusive look at Albion Theater penned by Senior Designer Tanya Short. Read on!

The Albion Ballroom Theatre is a grand old façade on Mayqueen Market in London, across the street from Ealdwic Park. As of Issue 4, you’ll be able to go inside, and put on whatever kind of show your heart desires! Our goal is to empower players. Open mic night? Sketch comedy shows? Extensive Shakespearean productions? Cabaret? Music video? It's really an open toolbox – you and your friends can use the Albion to do whatever you want.

Yep, it's a whole new level from LotRO's small theatre event in Frostbluff :)

I'm not a performer myself, but I could be a devoted audience member of the better plays. Nice idea and I guess it fits in TSW.

I agree. 

Something as well put together as the albion theatre would go down a treat in lotro especially on Laurelin.

Second that, the RP community would do wonders with these tools in LotRO. Consider how good shows are performed on Methel-stage, without any toolset :)

Is this a first? Has anyone seen something like this in the past?

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

This sounds even more awesome than I knew! I can hardly wait to try this out. And yes, it would be a hugely popular feature in LOTRO.

Even if I am not a dedicated roleplayer, this is just a brilliant idea. Hope there will be many events in there. I will gladly sit in the audience and applaud to the artists. Every MMORPG needs more of that creative and player-driven stuff. Wonderful!

Hodor!

This concept was presented by Turbine in LotRO a couple years ago.  This is an evolution of of that concept.

It was hugely popular in LotRO and I'm sure the RP crowd will love this.  I think both Turbine and Funcom missed an opportunity here by limiting it to a content mechanism, although player creations is nice.  Either could have truly left a mark had they created an actual system.  Funcom's version is much more systems oriented, but it looks like it will still take some work to get it there.

Funcom seems to be trying the experimental "wait and see" development approach at this point.  They are putting something out to see how it's received before they push it further.

Curse you AquaScum!

This is great! Im glad they didnt tag a bunch of achievements and point systems to it. Just let the community do its thing.  I'll drop 15 bucks to check it out when it goes live.

A classic from the LotRO forum:  http://youtu.be/xTRNJGg754s (and it's only a few emotes, some firework and a lot of coordination).

In TSW there will be much more options... Heck, I wanna see even the rehearsals, when they goofing around with the set management tools :)  Or when few people go in and hold a stand-up night... or anything.

This looks like a great feature. It'd be really awesome to see some recording options added, so that musicians who play the game can get some theatrical stage time as well with some of their   original music. xD

Really enjoying the variety and outside-the-box thinking coming from the devs at TSW.  This is a great addition, and it seems they are really starting to think of different ways to approach RP, PVP, questing and endgame.

Did i just read " a chance of dropping"? I hope there's no RNG mechanics in there. I like the idea of getting them from drops, but it better not be a random one for grinding.

Besides that, it looks awesome. I ike to RP and this is going to be a good tool for the community. Hope to see more stuff like this in the future.

Very cool. It's nice to see things other than pointless progression raids in MMO's again.

In SWG, on server Kettemoor, there was a very active RP community that periodically performed original plays and put on dance and music performances.  It was real fun to log on just to go to the "theatre." 

They didn't have a game mechanism, so it required some very well-planned coordination.

Meh, this is cool and all, but on a list of game-improving sandbox features, I'm not sure this would be in my top ten

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

Took a great idea and made it that much more special. This will be great to see in action. Well done.
