Here's a new developer diary for Funcom's ambitious modern-day MMO, The Secret World.
Funcom's new MMO hopes to break the MMO trend with its modern-day-meets-ancient-magic scenario, and by throwing out the traditional level-up system.
According to the blurb, "players are given total freedom to create and progress their characters, unbound by the restrictions of classes and levels. Players will get the opportunity to join one of the three secret societies and fight for power over important locations throughout our own world. Players will also journey through familiar places across the globe, such as Egypt, New England, London, New York and Seoul and battle monsters of myth and legend."
It was originally announced back in May 2007 before all but disappearing until early 2010 when the first real footage was shown. It's headed for PC and Xbox 360, but has no release window.
