The Secret World Preorders Include Beta Access

Funcom and EA Partners announce they are now accepting preorders for The Secret World, and that this advance commitment to the conspiratorial MMORPG will include guaranteed access to all the game's beta event, which will run "most" weekends between May 11th and the game's launch on June 19th. Here's the complete list of preorder incentives.

  • Guaranteed access to all Beta Weekends starting May 11, with the ability to carry over their characters to every subsequent event
  • Guaranteed Early Access to the game, up to four days prior to the game’s official launch
  • An exclusive in-game item providing an experience boost to progression
  • An exclusive in-game t-shirt featuring a unique monster design
  • A powerful pet (Ferocious Wolf, Egyptian Cat or Loyal Hound) to support the player in combat
  • A head start on character naming before the game launches

Certainly Funcom is known for their rocky starts. Having been in AO as my first 'beta', Hell of a proving grounds lol. However, with all of AO's problems I still played it longer than any other MMOG and consider it my all time favorite, even though it wasn't my first MMOG. AO had a really unique flavor and atmosphere, and a depth and complexity that no other MMOG has even approached (not even Eve).

I would add that their track record might change now that the former company lead is gone and this game is lead by the same guy who did The Longest Journey and Dreamfall. That alone gives me some hope for the title. I don't know if I'll preorder, but I damn sure am going to try the game out.

At the very least it will hold me over until GW2 comes out, which I personally think is going to hit sometime in the fall.
