Hmmm... i think lots of people will join the Dragon order since... almost every MiddleEastern and a whole bunch of Americans and Europeans and Asians hate the illuminati along with the templars xD
Now this faction I like, with their ancient link to Holy Order of Christian Knights (the Templars). This faction I would most likely enjoy playing as.
Well i have just taken the test (eerie music) and it said Templars Stamping out darkness does not sound too bad so i best get ready to go monster hunting then hehe.
i took the quiz on DARK DAYS ARE COMING and i turned out as a Templar so im just seeing what im in for
Any looking to join the Templars, head over to Darkdaysarecoming.com check out the forums, Any Templars familiar to the furum and are looking to join a cabal(guild) please check out the Fan and Fansite thread on the forum.
are you kidding me?! its a video game! its not propaganda to join the templars! its just well written dialogue to make the story more compelling. propaganda my ass.
a game from outside, a propaganda to the Illuminati (free masons/black magic) secret society from the inside. absolutely The New World(ly) Order propaganda.. BAD BAD GAME, beware of the thoughts that it delivers
Templars seem sorta like the Aryan Nation...I hope they don't go crusading around in pointy white hoods :P
All Templar followers, come over to darkdaysarecoming.com and join the secret world forums together brothers and sisters we can defeat the darkness.
The illuminati Must Be Destroyed http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3543161691381895251#docid=3149990642797444340
Recent movies and video games sure do try to make the Templars out to be oh, so bad. The mere fact that the Medieval church (such fine, upstanding folks that they were!) destroyed their order, discredited them and confiscated their lands and wealth should make you wonder if the Templars weren't in fact the GOOD guys.
Well, I just took the initiation test on there website and I am now an agent of the Templar's......................................... cool.
also to "yasso" what you are saying is besides the point. The notion of this video as well as many others is that you first must see why people would join/support the templars. What gives them cause, what ideal there is behind it. For instance: Assassin's Creed 1+2 Dragons Age: Origins All show that the templars are a breed of their own, given their own purpose to serve god and protect all that is divine...blah blah blah. However most games are to the opposite spectrum (choose of it what you will) and don't support the templar founding in any great degree. Given that it's shown enough to give an understanding to what they represent. Do you understand? The two characters a former Templar and Morrigan in Dragon Age:Origins bout on about this topic throughout the game. There isn't a time when the former Templar doesn't show that he is profound about his nature of have been a Templar(doesn't effect your other party members in the slightest, nor plagues you upon with being "good and righteous"). In fact the games script pokes fun alot of times for his lack of intellegence.
tl;dl: I havn't seen a game in today's recent market that shows a one sided view that contorts gameplay. In fact it's more to the opposite degree. This video is one of 3 class videos of The Secret World, and each is a tease to it's class. I agree with your point to the point that templars may be a bit over used in gaming, there could be other types of characters/organizations based around a different model, yes. That's about it. And about the free masons...please keep conspiracies to yourself, and not try to addle such devoted time and scripting because you believe you're being brainwashed or some other nonsense. Unless you're trolling, and provoking an angered response. IN which case good luck with your slighted amusement for the day, it's your accomplishment. Meanwhile I'll still continue and review with a reasonable rationale, and you'll still accomplish nothing. If there is anything that you might be plagued with and bombarded relentlessly for games, and much other media in today's culture. Try advertising. There is a huge amount of instintive draw and psychological inflence above any templar buisness you can concieve. Try there instead of here. (ie, Advertising in Video Games)
Looks promising, but only concept art for a trailer? Guess they don't want to leak any cutscenes or reveal gameplay(at least w/o glitches anyway)
thats what propaganda does to the future my friend .... The victors write history according to there will.. War is never justified but the victory of the victor is ....
I can understand why the "Templars" are relevant to a lore like that of The Secret World, but does anyone else find it noteworthy that so many games nowadays have some sort of "templar" thing going on? And at the same time it's usually referring to a "good, righteous" thing that fights evil? If anyone does their homework, they'll realize that the Knights Templars were actually the crusaders responsible for rivers of innocent blood spilt in many parts of the world centuries ago; they hijacked lots of good causes to serve greedy power-related or money-related agendas...and from what I hear, today's Freemasons are the grandchildren of Knights Templars, but Freemasons deny that, and a normal guy walking down the street like me just isn't sure what to believe anymore in today's world. Nevertheless, I personally feel we've had enough "templar = righteous goodness" fed to our minds while we're trying to have fun playing games.
This is going to be so cool! No leveling, no classes, and it looks like there is actually going to be an ever changing on going story! What more could you ask for?! But then it would be really funny if it all turned out to be an epic fail. I'll only get it if it gets 9/10...
I think GS used the wrong hook line for this video; I much prefer: "We do this because we are compelled; by tradition, by loyalty, by laws. Without these, we are just animals. Evil reigns over animals..."
OH MY GOD!! Could this be the game i have been waiting for, for so long? An MMO that i wont get sick of in a few days? No MMO has done it for me so far, could this be it? Templar, Illuminati, Dragon, Zombies, Vampires, Occult, Magic, Martial arts, THEY READ MY FREAKING MIND MAKING THIS GAME!
this game is very interesting. Sounds like you are a British protagonist. But I will need to see gameplay footage just to be sure
So... Illuminati = U.S.A. Templars = British...maybe also Germany? Dragon = China Dragon teaser is by far the coolest, the other two are as lame as the countries they represent.
Yeah should have the actual in-game engine at work... pretty silly to think, that!.. will grab our attention
Not sure what to expect but if it's anything like dreamfall there's a big chance i might like this one.
