New The Secret World Trailer Relieves Itself
Most people regard FunCom’s forthcoming conspiracy theory MMO The Secret World as a gigantic gamble, especially after the flop that was Age of Conan. Nevertheless, the Norwegian developers have demonstrated a certain endearing flair for the dramatic. This cinematic trailer for the game‘s Illuminati faction begins mundanely enough, with a normal-looking man sitting at a bar (he’s even wearing a sweater). When the man pulls out a cigarette and it bursts into flame without lighter or match, however, something uncanny is clearly going on. As he pays for his scotch on the rocks with a handful of coins tossed onto the bar, the man suddenly manipulates them with his mind, and they float in a little circle.
It’s not until he heads to the bathroom for a piss, though, that things really start to get strange. The Secret World, it seems, is all around us — even at the urinal at the end of row. You can stream the trailer below, or download it from our fast, free servers.
