The Secret World is a dark fantasy and horror MMORPG which lets players step into a war between secret societies and supernatural forces. Travel around the world to investigate the unknown and fight the unnatural. Customize your character’s skills, weapons, and more, and step into this shadowy world. You are free to explore the darkness by yourself, but remember; there is strength to be found in numbers. Team up with other players and face the challenges, or go through the immersive story mode alone. One thing is certain; the Secret World is like no world you’ve ever imagined before.
