@ yasso, You dont say. Dreamworld engine looks pretty amazing on DX10, i personally think it looks more real then CryEngine 3. It makes no sense to license someone elses engine when Funcom has their own. Plus they are used to working with it and had a chance to polish it with AoC. And to all the failcom comments, its you the WoW nation who failed. Not AoC.
It's like I really WANT the game to be amazing, but I'm not impressed at all with the graphics, and I do admit, it's a monumental, seemingly impossible task today to try to develop an MMO that would be profitable enough to be viable as a business venture, while also trying to meet the existing budget, while also aiming to impress people with visuals and graphics. But hey, amazing graphics work just fine with 64 players in the same map in Battlefield 3, so I don't know a slightly less awesome level of graphics can't be offered for an MMO that would have only double or triple that number at any given time in a specific zone (and server / realm) of the world. Then again, WoW started with crappy graphics too and Blizzard improved them greatly through the years. So I'll still be hopeful, but come on, Funcom, think outside the box, do more research, consider existing engines (like CryEngine 3 or Frostbite), and deliver a visual presentation worthy of the richness of your secret world, and of the amazing ideas you're working on. I simply cannot play an MMO in 2012 with outdated graphics while I'm playing games like Battlefield 3, Dead Space, etc! Come on. Please.
The ideas behind this game are amazing...I've never seen anything like this in games before, especially using real-life legends, rumors, and historical metaphors, things that we are familiar with from a lot of existing real-life literature, and implementing them into such an utterly rich world. All this is very commendable. It seems the story won't be lacking at all, nor would the lore or world and its richness be lacking. The voice acting seems decent, so far, and even in Age of Conan, the voice acting was good...the game grabbed my attention and impressed me for the first few hours, but very unfortunately, the game couldn't keep my attention at all for some reason; I honestly don't know what exactly was wrong with Age of Conan, although it had a lot of potential. With all that said, The Secret World doesn't feel promising enough for me...
@zizoradwan Dude... These graphics are incredible considering this is an MMO. The only other mmo I can think of that has graphics better than this is FFXIV.
@TheTrueObelus lol. I wont play another Failcom MMO ever, but I did like Battlestations Midway & Pacific. I just think MMOs arent their strong suite.
@SUNDRAGONJ dude you are way off the illumanti have been involed in conpiracies since the reninasaces and the templars suddenly disapperad with all there gold around the end of the middle ages so you really need to get your facts yet before you talk sh!t
@Unfallen_Satan Here's to hoping Ragnar gets enough sales off of this to FINALLY get production started on the Dreamfall sequel.
@megakick SWTOR has really crapy graphics (played the beta), but that's not the game focus.All in all it's an OK game but hardly one to match all the hype.Will not buy it, if I wanted WoW in space with voice acting...maybe.
@GriffinBalls 0:30 in arabic .... normally the word is sacred among moslem and should not be use in any form except in "official purpose" only. I no moslem but many of my friends do.
@hippiesanta What "god is great"? I've just watched this 4 times trying to see what in the world you're on about. Nope, no-one says it, no-one says anything in Arabic or anything else. Just the narrator talking and a few monster noises through the entire video and at no point does she mention about god is great. No Iraqi flag that I could see either. Please do explain... But also, why would anybody saying god is great offend a muslim? Extremist or non, Surely God is Great is a compliment to believers of God
I hope nobody from my moslem brothers will get offended the the "god is great" at the early part of this video
@duumrul, So where's the difference then? Sounds to me like they are way more selfish, when I read your comment.
You can stop watching after 0:07, unless you want to support EA's Origin trojan of course, then bend over and watch a Left for Dead clone set in the desert. I will be laughing at all you fools when your accounts get locked and access to all your games is revoked, but go on, give EA your money, it's your own fault when you support that. Can't wait for EA to extend this feature to their console games or see them ban accounts that use a cheat in a singleplayer game. *maniacal laughter*
i love how asians don't give a fiddlers fart about europeans or americas , and just do their own thing for their own... apparently europe and americas are NOT the center of the world for them...
WTF? Why do you people say this game has SH1T or OK graphics?? are you kidding me what other mmo has better graphics than The Secret World??? what are you gonna say some Asian mmo like C9, Tera, Blade & Soul or ArcheAge well good luck playing them in like 3 years time. just stfu and go play WoW LOL
@SUNDRAGONJ To be fair, the three factions have a lot to do with conspircacy. For instance, according to game lore released so far, what we know as the Knights Templar was actually a minor and short-lived offshoot of the true Templar organization which has existed since Mesopotamian times. The true Templars have since been using the "Knights" image to keep the masses ignorant of their true nature.
sloppy/stiff character animations, boring game play, mediocre graphics, mummies? really? no thanks lul
Also, WTF ARE SOME OF YOU PEOPLE TALKIN ABOUT - These are the best mmo graphics I've ever seen... Please provide an example of better graphics in an mmo or stfu/
Love it or hate it the game will be released within 6 months, and we can all test it then ;D I for one am very excited - been following it a long time... since it was announced, and the animations and graphics have improved dramatically from videos we saw 6 months ago.. I'm 100% routing for funcom on this one.
I think play testing is necessary to get to know the game. I still can't tell what this game is about. Is it story driven? Co-op combat driven? The worse outcome is a game that lacks the storytelling of The Longest Journey and the gameplay of the other excellent MMO out there.
This game looks pretty crappy, kind of like the mummy movies, and @ragnar320 this has nothing to do with conspiracy theories more like supernatural stuff so think before you type
i hope this game makes it cause i really like the concept and the fact that it has to do with conpircay theroiess and modern day locations. im hopeful at least it comes out in apirl so maybe it will have a better chance agaisnt swtor and guild wars 2. wow is a dying beast and they should just kill it already.
@DarthVeng Why in God's name would you think that EA, who only has the rights to co-publish the game in North America, would have influence on the development of a worldwide release from Funcom, a dev studio they don't even own?
