that whatever conspiracy undermined beta signups for The Secret World on Friday
has unraveled, and they are now accepting applications to test the upcoming MMORPG. This also kicks off the first phase of "The Secret War," described as an "interactive online experience." Here's a bit:
Durham, USA – August 29th, 2011 – Funcom today opened the official beta registration for ‘The Secret World’, the highly anticipated upcoming massively multiplayer online game set in our own, modern-day world. Gamers can now register to be evaluated for participation in the upcoming phases of beta that will be running up to the launch of the game in April 2012. During the next months Funcom will be increasing the number of beta participants gradually.
The launch of the beta registration also signals the start of the first phase ‘The Secret War’, an interactive online experience that engages community members in the conflict between the Templars, the Illuminati, and the Dragon – the three factions in ‘The Secret World’ – even before the game is released.
