Here's a batch of fresh screenshots for next year's PC MMO The Secret World. If the first batch of screens were unified by one thing, it was their intense combat focus – whereas the dominant theme of these pics seems to be “brooding conspiracists giving the viewer their best tough-guy grimace.” Stare down the extremist Templars, amoral Illuminati and chaotic-neutral Dragon in a few of the game's hidden-in-plain-sight locales below.

Secret World is Funcom's modern-day, reality-based MMO in which every cockamamie theory you've ever heard from crazy-eyed substance-abusers, street preachers and YouTube commenters is absolutely true. The game pits players in a three-way struggle between rival secret societies struggling for control of the world's unwitting populace. Electronic Arts, itself well on the way to world domination without the need for any secret handshakes or funny costumes, will co-publish the title, scheduled for an April 2012 release.

    I've got my heart set on SWTOR, so I won't be getting this anytime soon. But to be honest, it looks AWESOME, and completely unique. I'm diggin' the pseudo-modern vibe that I'm getting, on top of the horror setting. I don't know how the combat or setup will be, but if there's anymore on this, I'd be happy to read up on it.
