Date: Friday, October 14 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: 1A24


Join Funcom for an exclusive live demo of their hotly-anticipated new MMO The Secret World. Presented by Funcom creative director Ragnar Tørnquist, The Secret World is set in the modern world and asks, “What if every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend was true?” In the game, players join one of three secret societies fighting the forces of darkness and maintaining a fragile balance of power from the shadows. The game will take players on an epic journey across the globe from Seoul to NYC and from London to Cairo, experiencing dark secrets from each culture. The Secret World also gives many MMO conventions a fresh spin, with no levels and no character classes. Offering true freedom of progression, the game encourages gamers to experiment with skills, weapons and powers to create characters and playstyles that are as unique as the players themselves. Come by for an in-depth preview of the game and discover the deepest secrets of The Secret World. Panel brought to you by MMORPG.com.
