If there is a game that replaces WOW for me, it'll probably be this one. I totally dig the modern setting with magic and monsters... so very Shadowrun, so very nice.
@DannyBoy2k: From the early information I got some time ago, he's supposed to be this neutral character, and yes, there are such people in the TSW. I wasn't too interested in him at the time, so I forgot about the background details, LOL. @GamingMaster06: I know, right? LOL. But you shouldn't be surprised. Young they may be, but they're all veteran warriors. As dangerous as this thing is, they've seen worse.
The question becomes...who's the 'african' guy? The three threatening each other are the three societies...the blonde is a Templar, the girl with the black hair is a Dragon, and the guy is an Illuminati. But the last one...there are only 3 societies, and he doesn't fit in any one of them. Some form of witch doctor, it seemed. An NPC? Or are there societies so secret even we the players haven't heard of them?
@FaYt2021: Funny that you'd say that. I'm actually planning a graphic novel based on this game's universe.
After the failure of Age Of Conan and all that trashed money of mine, funcom is dead to me. It doesnt matter if they develop the best game. I'll never ever give them a cent again!
I like that they pulled in the characters from all of the previous trailers. Did a clean job of highlighting the rivalries between the factions and the greater threat at hand. Pretty epic.
@FaYt2021 Most of the themes in this game are heavily inspired by the writings of authors like H.P. Lovecraft and Clive Barker. One of the earliest trailers for this game was called A Shadow Over Kingsmouth. Which is a very obviously reference to Lovecrafts short story A Shadow Over Innsmouth. Also the creature at the very end of the lengthy gameplay trailer looks a lot like Cthulhu, his most famous creation. All of his work comes highly recommended.
With the number of cinematic trailers they put out, I wonder if there's any time left for creating the game itself???
