Nothing special to my eyes, I mean sure the world looks unique compared to what's out there but it just seems to be the classic combat sytem of magic / melee / ranged.  I don't see myself playing this... why? Because the more I look at all the MMO's being made the more I wish some AAA developer would take the bold step of creating a truly unique sandbox open world concept game that doesn't so much focus on the ideas of some novel... but is created around the idea of just having a massive world to play around in.  I'm so sick of theme parks, this looks to be nothing different.

What the hell are you talking about. This game has an amazingly unique theme. Yeah Blade and Soul and Tera Online look good and i want to play it, but there is nothing unique to them, the combat is simply twitch based and it has the old fantasy theme. Oh i'm an elf or a fat-tall blue thing let me kill some demons or dragons. Go back to your fantasy land to farm you rice and let the grown-ups play real games.

Looks interesting.  I would definetly like to test the game, hope Beta sign up goes soon.  Alrdy ran through the site's quiz.  I would have to play it to know for sure what I think, but looks interesting.  Less horror, more conspiracy and suspense (although rumors of Cthulu reference are there).

@Shastra IDK, according to the intro, all the things that exist in mytholgoy are existant in the Secret World... so it may have Elves and Orcs... only in a bit more creepy sense.

tho the game still sounds fun.. i think ill hold off until a more plasuble video comes out that really shows the game off.

sorry most of the locals are rehashes i have seen even in HL1-HL2 mods... so.. its not really doing anything for me... most so when the video looks like half life 2 on DX10 graphics..

They have a somewhat interesting premise, but appear to be going down the same road as every other game.

The "Secret" World doesn't look like much of a secret, and that's not what I was hoping for.  I was looking forward to omething with much more of a dark feel (like an actual horror novel or movie), and something a lot more subtle (think PnP WOD for inspiration) with a far more "underground" feel, if that makes sense.

The same tired gameplay is the same tired gameplay, with or without elves.

By the way, terrible graphics, animation, and sound for a trailer.

Considering it's from FC, I don't see why anyone would complain about graphics and such. Have you never seen Anarchy Online? That aside, I think it looks interesting. Graphics are fine, game play might be alright. Would love to test this one out, but not sure if I would pay for it, well.. it is funcom... though any problems, they should have time to improve before launching.

Look guys you all talk that it looks like HL2 engine with dx10, compare with so many game engines, why don't you just open youre eyes and see what it's real???

It's AOC complete MOD even the selected Mob Ring in the ground is the same, they didn't added anything is just an AOC Mod.

 

But what i don't understand about you flaming and killing the game before see anymore of it, is that when AOC came out it have amazing and great graphics, the best graphics ever, and now, just two years later, when almost didn't had improvements in graphics for mmorpg's, you say that graphic's of this engine is really bad....

 

If you coment just be real and not flame too early, it is bad, for me yes, why, because it is just AOC modded for an HL theme game, probably better than AOC, yes it should be better because they had time to polish the game, and just hope they don't just modded it, and hope they had change the wrongs from the past, but with that engine and graphics environment it will not be to much better...

 

Another example of the AOC engine is the movements, if you don't believe, just see:

 

Ring on the ground from AOC and TSW, the movement of characters of both, even the positions the chars made, for example the one with the arm up is the same as the assassin in AOC, and the one with fire going out, looks like his chest, is the same fire from the demologist of AOC...

 

So too bad for funcom that two years ago made a "bad" on release and now that they are making it better, try to launch a game with the exactely same engine without improvements, at least at first sight.

MMO.Maverick writes:

1st of all, it's not a pure horror-MMO, but more like urban fantasy-MMO in a modern day world, based upon the idea 'what if all the myths and urban legends and old wives' tales were true?' Inspirational sources they mentioned were Lovecraft, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe. Next to the trailer, there was a truckload of articles released about TSW this week. Here's the list of features and info that came up (article source between brackets):

 


World environment

  • Persistent world, there will be huge contiguous open-world zones.
  • All three factions progress through the same areas in the same order (IGN)
  • Each location has its own "monster ecology" based on the mythology and lore of the area (Kotaku) and its own layered, unique story to tell (mmorpg.com)
     


Gameplay

  • Instances will have a more scripted experience.
  • There are no classes, no levels. Characters are built upon two facets, collection of powers and gear (Voodoo)
  • Your powers grow more powerful with your gear (IGN)
  • There will be 2 item sets for each character – one paper doll for functionality such as weapons, the other for character appearances (TenTonHammer)
  • Next to combat, your character will spend time investigating and solving puzzles. Some areas will be more action focused (Kingsmouth), others will have more focus on puzzle solving (Egypt).
  • Players will be able to create and decorate their own headquarters and rank their cabals against those of others (mmorpg.com)
  • Powers can be unlocked by trading points you earn from experience. Some powers are tied to certain equipment, others have prerequisites (eurogamer)
  • The game is item-heavy, there'll be millions of items, and you can craft, augment and level up your weapons (eurogamer)
     


Combat

  • You only have 7 active powers and 7 passive powers that'll be active. At certain spots outside of combat you can swap those to activate other powers that you have collected.
  • Team skill combos are possible via the State system, active powers put enemies or allies into a "state", passive powers interact with that state and make use of that. Example: one player sets a group of zombies on fire, while another has a damage over time power running that kills enemies on fire, causing the group to explode.
  • Combat movement will include dodging and strafing (Massively)
     


Quests / storytelling

  • Most of the regular storyline missions will be solo-able, and taking place in the open-world zones.
  • Scripted, repeatable dungeons will be there for party play; shorter instances or "mini-dungeons" will be part of mission sequences and used as a storytelling device.
  • [*]There's one linear story to follow through the game, perpetuated with cliffhangers and mysterious elements popping up. Not all of the global story is needed or will be uncovered by progressing through the game. To find out more, one need to "dig deeper" (Voodoo)
  • Storylines, lore and cutscenes can be skipped by those who want to jump into the fights rightaway (TenTonHammer)
  • Your quests will not only make you travel over the world, but also through time (Massively)
  • Every mission starts with its own cinematic cutscene incl voice acting. It's possible to replay a mission with a harder Challenge Mode (vgchartz).
  • Parties seem to be limited to max size 4 (not 100% certain, but all articles and videos showed 4-man parties, no more, as if that was fullsize)
  • Kingsmouth combat seems to take place in the evening/night cycle? (as latest trailer seem to suggest)
     


Miscellaneous

  • Your UI will be sort of an augmented reality like Heavy Rain and iPhone have. The only permant visible UI things on screen will be your chat window and your 7 active powers (eurogamer)
  • ARGs will also continue after launch, according to Tornquist.

About the trailer, I think they just used placeholders for the characters since this is (pre?) alpha stage, I think there'll be quite some polishing of the character models and animations yet. I know how good it can look by looking at the characters and their animations in AoC, so I expect the endresult in TSW to be at least as good as the ones of AoC.

Besides that, for this early a stage the environment and monter animation are starting to shape up pretty good.

@Zeroxin: I agree, switching up the gameplay is a pretty bold statement to fulfill. Well, the theme is unique, I don't know any MMO in the horror/urban fantasy genre besides CCP's upcoming World of Darkness. That combi of Lovecraft/King atmosphere with Dreamfall's Tornquist as game director makes a strong combination. Plus that combat system of active skills limit a la GW and a State system that reminds of EQ2's Heroic Opportunities could be a fluid, natural evolution of that combat system.

The storytelling in TSW they're approaching like Bioware will be doing with ToR, that sounds great too.

But it's far too early to really say something about it yet, it depends how the final results before launch will be, what will be implemented and working as intended and what not.

Plus when it comes to real innovations I'm expecting a GW2 to score better on that front.

Bruce Lee only defeated Chuck Norris because Chuck forgot to put his roundhouse kick on his task bar that morning.  Oops.

To me, that kind of game-ism belongs in limited one-off style games, and not in true RPGs where if you've learned a skill, you should be able to use it (not be held hostage by some arbitrary task bar limitation).  To me, that's a definite immersion-killer.

It is onely 104mb. And you can download all the other screenshots/videos/artwork from TSW and other Funcom Games.

Keep in mind this game is onely at starting Alpha testing, sow the finish need alot of polishing and they have almost 18 more months to do sow. TSW has been  Ragnar Tørnquist little baby for about 7year in production sow we know the stories/quests are going to be great. Funcom is trying hard not to make this to mainstream like the other MMOs. They stil keep the key-elements not to loos the players.

I am not saying fall in love with it now. Just keep an open mind. This is going to be a great game for those who love to fight against the darkside and have fun doing sow.

Please read about the game here and on IGN

@Proson, I agree, some of the music in AoC was mesmerizing like when you walked in the Cimmerian regions. This is the song I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deDNzOYHu-4

Great atmosphere.

Oh come on people, maybe some of you like the fancy colors and cartoony art better in WoW, but don't start saying that the graphics and character animation in AoC is crap. I've played all the well-known MMO's around, and AoC's graphics rate among the best of them. If you're going to compare the graphics with single player games, yes, then sure it falls short of a MW2 or ME2 or God of War 3 graphics, but that applies to all MMO's.

 

That said, yes, I really hope they'll upgrade and polish the char models and animations in TSW at least to the level of AoC, those were the downpoints of the video (the lighting at some places too, I agree). The monster animation and landscape, nothing wrong with that. Looks good.

Realy becraft, dont you think they will fix this in the 18months they have left of development. I am shore they will have a little better graphic as AoC have and be one of the MMOs with best graphics.

And Hokie honestly you and ther rest of the world dont have the PC, that could handle Funcom graphics in a Sandbox MMORPG.  It is just impossible, maybe there is a supercomp in the military ore somthing ;)

The game will be mostely large playfields( not like in Tortage). You will need to go into instances to do some bosses and sutch.

This is a good artikkle:

The graphic is not impresive. Just look at the cowboy man. He is all "box" like. And when they say there will be millions of items I must LOL. Just try to count to million and you'll die before you reach it. And they say millions.Haha. Thats imposible to do. We will see how this game turns out. I hope they learn something from past expiriance.

Pado,  I urge you all to not watch this versjon.

Try it on gametrailers

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-10-the-secret/63666

And not this versjon. Sow if the graphis is sow bad(keep in mind this is early alpha testing), what MMORPGs have better Graphics than AoC and uppcomming (18 months) TSW. There is alot to work on the nexst 18months, but what do you exspect from a game that fare from finishing. 2million is not that mutch and you dont die if you try counting that fare. They have now over 100 people working on TSW and has been working on it for 7years now. If you count all parts of the game rocks/fish/different clothers/gras,  it do add upp after 7 year. Some items are almost the same just got a different crack ore shade on them.

Can't say that preview interests me in the game at all.  Nice to see they're showing actual gameplay footage rather than what some do is just go with cinematics for their preview.

Still, nothing about it stood out to me.

Maybe I'm being nitpicky.. but why is it none of them are wearing anything resembling body armor?  They seem to all be wearing street clothes.

Eneldin because they wanted you to be able to look as you want to look. Clothes have no stats. 

So if you want to wear armor, you most likely can, but it will simply be cosmetic.

Saves us from everyone looking exactly the same.

Banshe13 I did not se any melee attack that required any reaction. Most of them seemed to be bosse and you do exspect them to take some damage without to mutch twitching and sutch. And the game is not finished sow just whate.  And what has Funcom realy failed with. AoC is a super game atm and this game director Tørnquist is credited with popularizing the term "modern adventure". Sow we know this game is going to be a hell og alot better.

I have seen a few min of FFXIV gameplay and the toon run in to the sheep(in the middel of it) and fight it. Sow alot of games has issues in alpha it seems.

To Nicoo.

I did not know the following about Hellgate

- It runs threw Sigon, small town USA, Egypt and New York. And many more location in the world.

-Its not an FPS but an MMORPG

-Its an Action/adventure game, not spray and pray

hmm grafics are good enough, don't see any problem with then, also I bet tera and blade and soul pvp battles will lag even more then Aion, clear and easy grafics are better for computers. animation also is also good, and I don't think it will be a epic fail, it will be a niche game only some people will play it, for me I reserve me the right to wait ignoring all the hype till I can beta test it or take a open beta period. also it will depend if the combat will be quick and nice,.

also from the vid you can't tell if is a click attack or free attack, a lot of game have a auto target on the mobs you attack to show hp and stats, so let's wait and see what they will do, I give it 2 years for us see something almost done for this game

I don't care much about that graphics and it's still too early to tell. LOL @ suggesting those pretty asian MMOs with bad gameplay and pointless grinding. The setting of the game is what makes it original. WoW didn't have some ZOMG graphics either when it came out either, Lineage 2 looked better and still sucked ass.

Honestly I see many really interesting features. While a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft I'm not really into a "realistic" MMO. I might give it a try though.

I agree that it does have a Left 4 Dead / HL2 vibe to it, which cant be bad.  However, for me, just going out and killing monsters doesn't make an MMO great.  It needs interesting story arcs (which i hope Ragnar Tornquist can pull off) and lots of variety in activities.  Otherwise its going to get dull and boring real fast.  Anyone who's played STO will know what happens when your main focus is solely just repeating quests and killing npcs for very little reason.

For each and every one above me here, please refer me to a game that the graphics level are so good they warrant all the super negativity some of you are heaping on this game. And slightly better can't cut it. If these graphics are so outdated where are these MMO's with ultra realistic looks? What I saw above wasn't perfect but its a mile past WOW and just as good as AOC.
