sec1 Early Access to The Secret World Starts Today

If you’re looking for an opportunity to start your grind ahead of the pack in the upcoming MMO The Secret World , today begins the four-day early access period for those who have pre-ordered the game.

“To say that we are shaking things up is an understatement,” says Funcom SVP of Sales & Marketing Morten Larssen. “With ‘The Secret World’ we are showing gamers as well as the gaming industry that MMOs can be taken into new, exciting directions and that innovation in this genre is definitely not dead. Judging from the fantastic feedback we have already received from hundreds of thousands of beta testers, innovation is clearly the way forward and Funcom is excited to be breaking new ground.”

Taking place in a modern-day setting, The Secret World  will take players across real-world locations such as Egypt and New England and places a heavy emphasis on storytelling.

The game officially launches on July 3rd, so you can still pre-order the game now and get in early if you were planning to buy the game next week.
