The Secret World - Illuminati Teaser


Electronic Arts has released a teaser trailer giving a glimpse into the world of the Illuminati, one of the three secret societies in Funcom's upcoming modern-day MMO, The Secret World.

Quote:
The Illuminati are invisible puppet-masters and corporate manipulators, and they crave power and wealth by any means necessary. They may have ancient roots, but they remain forever young and hungry. The Illuminati’s golden agents enjoy power, money and glamour – but the real power they offer you goes beyond that: Information worked from every civilian, government and clandestine organization in the world.

heh Only caught on to this game recently, immediately signed up for the beta when I did. No clue how good it's going to be, but the backdrop certainly sounds pretty awesome.

They are trying really hard to make it not feel like a typical mmo, but it's going to feel like a mmon in many ways. People who play it for the story will not be disappointed and it's on a much more polished engine in a mature dark world compared to others.

EA is in bed with the Illuminati. This game will be a cointel operation to distort the facts of the illuminaties true intentions. Which is in fact is a cointel operation of itself for some other ancient butt buddy club to which we will never the intentions of.

I was formerly interested in this game but their ridiculous use of Facebook and social media in general is utterly stupid. The background of in game powers and generic modern day technology is also worrying. It's a cool concept but overall it will probably feel watered down and rather empty along with simplistic rule sets and game play... Unless you consider Facebook the ultimate form of interaction. All the Secret War bs also allows you to unlock in game items and get guaranteed access so I'll let the 500k+ sheep have fun with this.

The game will further spread more disinformation on the illuminati much like dave brown and the history channel do. If you are into truthiracies, vigilantcitizen is a pretty good site.

The Illuminati are ametures imo. Parasites that have gone unchecked for far too long with no genuine purpose than to meddle in the affairs of greater powers and stop real progress from being made.

My old paintball team was, "First Team: Team 13" Paranormal Division. Some black felt logos over our ominous charcoal uniforms (the black on black was quite intimidating), and some home made patches from the lesser companies such as Magadon, Endron, King Distilleries, Avalon Toys, Tellus Electronics, and the infamous Black Dog games.

Quote:
Warning: Avoid all subject matter labeled Black Dog. If you are squeamish, have problems with themes like rape, murder, violence, mass killings, the poor, the insane, cancer, abortions, or anything else that deals with the horrors of Real Life, Do Not Read These Books. The editors of this page hold no liability in you being offended, horrified, or even if your soul is eaten by forces unknown through your ears. Otherwise, enjoy your corruption and have a nice day.
If I decide to take the plunge and get into The Secret World It's likely I'll run a small scale pvp guild of similar name and theme.

Hmm, gotta say, I'm not really interested in the premise. The whole bit about the Illuminati has been so overblown, any time I hear "Illuminati", I cringe a little. If the game does offer some political structure (which is such a neglected part of MMOs), and a decent community/economy, it may be okay.

The Illuminati are just a twisted inside joke between Hagbard Celine and a dolphin.

It's hard to tell if he's in on the joke or the butt of it.

lol, the way this guy spends his summer months in a canoe, rowing around "Bohemian Grove"? I'd Think he's the butt. But that would make it all the more funnier if he were in on it.

Maybe Jesse Ventura will be an NPC, sending you to check on the HARP project. 'I hear the music'
