New Dev Blog Talks Characters

New Dev Blog Talks Characters -

A new Funcom developer blog has surfaced talking about the characters coming in The Secret World. Penned by lead writer Dag Scheve, the blog tells fans how important and integral the NPCs will be to the over-arching story that The Secret World will bring to players. Scheve lets it out of the bag that the world will be populated with hundreds of fully voiced and motion captured characters that will be critical to the story.

On your journey through the secret world you will meet characters from all continents and all walks of life. From a Scottish school teacher to an Ethiopian gangster. From a fifteen year old contract killer to a jaded hero of elder times. From a sexy Brazilian diplomat to a three thousand year old mummy in a suit. From a golden child to an ancient villain with a huge chip on his shoulder.

Where characters in other games are often just vehicles for the tasks the designers want their players to undertake, our characters are about giving you the information you need to decide for yourself. Rather than asking the player directly for help, they will talk about events in the world and offer opinions, present scenarios that players can choose to react to, do something to change, or walk away from.
