MMORPG.com Managing Editor Bill Murphy has found a lot to like in The Secret World. But nothing strikes his fancy so much as the excitement that is brewing about the three factions that will be featured in the game on launch next year. See why Bill is swelling with pride over the Illuminati (though Templars are best!) and why faction pride is going to play a big part in The Secret World. Leave a comment or two after you're done reading!
Players of DAOC will always remember the game, not because it was necessarily the best of its class, but because its three-faction warfare made you truly care about your character, you guild, and your entire Realm. It didn’t matter if you had quests to do or dungeons to crawl… if the other realms were threatening yours, you dropped everything and charged into battle against them. Alliances were made, broken, and abused in the name of “Realm Pride.” I’m getting this feeling once more with the recent Secret War beta campaign for The Secret World.
