Secret World trailer gives you a brief glimpse of the MMO’s Illuminati

The upcoming MMO The Secret World builds on the theory that every tinfoil hat conspiracy theory you've about the world is true. That includes the Illuminati, an order some believe control the world’s most powerful people and corporations from behind the scenes. But they do more than that, as you’ll see in this introductory video to one of the MMO’s three factions.

Pretty nice, and we can say from experience that not many game trailers give you directions for mixing a cocktail. The powerful and wise Illuminati are just one of the three groups at Secret World’s core. There’s also the Templar, which we saw in another recent video. Watch:

The Secret World is schedule to launch some time in the first half of 2012. You can read our most recent hands-on with it here.

    Seems like a Deus Ex ripoff

    How is it a Deus Ex rip-off? It's a MMORPG set sort of in the present-day with vampires, demons, and magic. I don't remember Deus Ex seeming like that. Deus Ex doesn't own the Illuminati. Calling this a Deus Ex rip-off is like calling it an Assassin's Creed rip-off because it also has the Knight's Templar. Also, unrelated to your comment, but because I don't want to spam the comments with two of mine: You guys should really check out the Illuminati trailers on youtube. It's hilarious. Half of the comments seem like they're talking about how this game is an attempt by the Illuminati to brainwash young people. The internet sure has a way of bringing out the conspiracy theorists.
