The Secret World is less of a secret. Today, developer Funcom released a new trailer for the mysterious and unique MMO. Set during the modern day, The Secret World sets itself apart from the usual fantasy and sci-fi trappings common in most MMOs. But the game will also eliminate levels and classes – another sacred cow of the genre. Being able to “build the character you want to play” seems to be the main mantra of the game’s development team as part of an attempt to move away from tiresome grinding and character restrictions.
