Did you enjoy this video?
WELCOME TO THE GREAT TEMPLE OF ILLUMINATI WORLDRICHS. Are you a business.
cant believe the negativity ..the game looks promising cant wait to try it out
I think the gaming industry thinks of us gamers as sheep that we will buy anything they through at us.
THIS GAME IS RIDICULOUS illuminate my a**
Why u in computer game Liam Neeson
It's a joke right,a pc game with ps2 graphics gonna be released at year 2k12.
Let me address a few issues people seem to have:
1,The game play animations:The animations have CLEARLY not been polished yet,that wont be till like the last few weeks,so thats not a problem.
2,How come with all the tech now adays the graphix still look like crap?Um an MMO absolutly can not have graphix as good as games that do not NEED connect to the internet because they need to send and receive MILLIONS of packets of info across the net.TSW will have the best Graphix ANY MMO will ever see for years to come.(although it needs polish ATM)
3:Why does EA have to buy every thing?:EA has very little to do with Funcom and NOTHING to do with the developement of TSW,Funcom went to EA for a promotional and distrabutional partnership because Funcom could not foot the whole bill.
4;Im NOT paying for an MMO EVER!!!Good,I hope your boss demands the best performance out of you,demands you look your best all the time,and demands you never have any BUGS about you,then when payday comes says"Oh,Im not PAYING you for all you do I want it for free!"
For real people?Lets reward peoples hard work they deserve it.I understand some poeple will only pay 1 subscription at a time (like myself) however saying you'll NEVER pay a sub is telling me youre a little kid that has no way of affording it or youre just being selfish,cheap,and want everything handed to you,which = immature.
I feel I can trust that funcom this time will launch a finished and polished game with more content after 3 months of playing. Their main focus has been to avoid things that made AoC flop.
No other mmo can match the graphics. Gameplay seems like a crossing between a story-driven adventure and an mmo game, which is very appealing to me beeing a big fan of "Dreamfall" and "TLJ". Think this game could rock my world :)
The gameplay is terrible, I will never pay for this, don't even know if i'll play this when this goes free to play.
Gameplay looks really crappy, with no interaction between player and monsters. Feels like they're fighting on their own pace... pfft.
i very dont like this game

Wow, does EA just buy everything?!? Why!!
I just hope that this game turns out to be something interesting.
This is showcasing only one (Illuminati) of the three factions.
graphic is good only for the cinematic,
gameplay looks terrible
;o no thx.
Making dumb games about such sensitive and important matters is just a way of hiding and protecting the status-quo, by raising a veil of ridicule and fiction over the way our world sadly operates.
I won't support this garbage, not even for entertainment value.
I DONT BLIVED
A secret society, some daemons, a few spells, a conspiracy, probably an opposing evil cult.. It looks like an RPG/Adventure game with the 'Illuminati' tag attached to it
I'll wait for the reviews.. Let Gamespot decide this game's fate.
Raqnor is a conspiracy theorist though. So not sure if this is all that sinister coming from his department. But thats not to say EA/Consolidate Games Company Mogul arent loving this idea for their own agendas
There are actually people commenting about the illuminati being real? I would laugh if it wasn't so pitiful and ridiculous.
Respect, you are correct. Do you know about the eye & pyramid that frequently appears Cod BO, If not look It up on youtube.
The people who are Insulting you do not understand the power of symbology & what It means. They are attempting to make Illuminati look like a fictional & harmless fantasy. They have been doing It In films for years & we see the Influence more each day In games.
Its refreshing to meet a gamer who also chose the red pill. The more research you do the more It all makes sense. I see that your profile Is private, send me a friend Invite buddy.
Hey Yasso I wish we would have factions like that because then it'd be realistic but certain people are too close minded and prejudice themselvs and try to have everything the easy way so they'd call foul or racism if a game had that. Too many people are still unrealistic in this so called free country haha a gang is always discriminating against a certain type of other person that's what makes that a gang or faction. Why can't people be real there really isn't a good or bad side in a fight or war THe good side is always the side your on and the bad is whoever's agaist you that's the reality.
@twe1ve_5tones What @yasso is trying to say is, even though it is "just a video game", a work of "fiction", that there is somehow a "secret message" in these works of fiction that people developing stuff like this need to take into consideration when making a work of fiction. Stuff like alcoholism, drug use, sex, war, murder, corporate greed, general conflict, or other "questionable, non positive" material shouldn't be featured in a work of fiction because it apparently "glamorizes" that way of life. Why is that bad? Because apparently "most people" can't tell the difference between reality and fantasy and will start to think these things are "good". The creators should instead make it as obvious as possible that bad stuff is bad so we don't all get confused and start killing each other or something. (>(\
I need to see more before I decide.
@yasso It seems to me that you have a very clear "belief" of what Illuminati "should" be. That alone should be enough for you, why go the extra mile by shouting to the world you're ideals? It seems clear you are one of those uptight, self-righteous, pretentious type. Also people are smarter than you give them credit for. Shame on you. oh and its just a game.
@twe1ve_5tones Your remark might have been relevant or useful if it were made perfectly clear in-game that the Illuminati is, for example, the "evil" or dark side, and that there is another "good" side; obviously the game has nothing like that. There are 3 factions, all of them messed up in their own ways, the Illuminati is one of them, and they're the only factions that you can join as a player; those are the kinds of ideologies, and "labels" like Illuminati, that--they're hoping--you'll be calling your own for many years to come playing the MMO. That you'd consider the faction "my team, my way, my this, my that", and so on. Again, yes, I wouldn't expect Hitler to debase Nazism in his monologue, but when we watch that monologue, we expect the trailer to not "glamorize" Hitler and Nazism, even if he himself is, and to make it clear to us, as the audience, that it is evil. There's nothing like that in the trailer. Learn to differentiate media messages so you don't get brainwashed easily, and if you still don't see it, then I hope other readers will and it won't matter if you keep defending what's happening above.
@yasso "But the message is basically that the Illuminati is cool and has its appeal to some people (glamorizing the Illuminati)"
If you didn't notice, the video is a monologue from an Illuminati. You don't expect an illuminati to debase his own faction do you? I wouldn't expect any less from the other factions.
oh tzimisce cant wait to see how u look in this
Is this multiplayer or singleplayer.
Templars....here I come
And I thought they wanted us to have fun while also delivering a good message! But the message is basically that the Illuminati is cool and has its appeal to some people (glamorizing the Illuminati), and that some of us may want to be part of it? Shameful.
Some people may make the usual ignorant, shortsighted comment, "It's just a game". But it's never "just" a game, or just a movie, or just a song; it's always a piece of entertainment, yes, but there IS a message wrapped in it too. How would you feel about a game that has a racist faction that basically hunts down a specific group or race of humanity, let's say a faction that hates only African or black people, or a faction that hates only Jews? Well, it would be "just a game" and all! But if such a faction is not clearly shown to be evil, or if it is "glamorized" in a game trailer, then surely something must be wrong about the game, right? It's the same thing here.
And it doesn't matter to you if the Illuminati is real or not. You know why? Because if they're not real, then the game is glamorizing what they represent, the idea behind the Illuminati; and if they are real, then they are glamorizing a real entity in the world that is responsible for abundant wars and bloodsucking of poor populations. Take your pick, real or not.
(Gameplay) The tech that's out now and THESE are the graphics this game is packing? Many games have had animation that both looked and moved far better. The Secret World has lost my interest.
I'm not sure this game universe is viable..... i'm put off by the mixture of genres I see in there.
decent trailer for an interesting game. I practically forget this thing existed
well this game does look cool but idk if im gonna play yet cause im havin a blast with SWTOR (first comment)
