The Secret World Shines A Spotlight On The Illuminati

Of the three secret societies vying for power in Funcom's supernatural MMO The Secret World, the Illuminati is probably the most well-known. That's probably not a good thing.

I mean when your secret society has a Wikipedia page you're probably not quite as secret as you think you are. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they can't see you.

In The Secret World the Illuminati are the puppet-masters, the power-brokers, basking in the power, wealth and fame that comes from having a large portion of the world's corporate sector in the palm of your hand. They get the coolest outfits, hang out in the shiniest headquarters, and party harder than the Templars or the Dragon combined. If that appeals to you, then this is your group of secret folks.

Still not sure? Head to the official website for The Secret World and take the personality test. It'll help you find your other self.


    I'd like funcom to prove me wrong but I'm gonna tread around this one really warily until there is solid proof that it's not gonna be another age of fail.

    "The rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it."
    "Why contain it? Let it spill over into the schools and churches, let the bodies pile up in the streets, in the end; they'll beg us to save them."

    I wonder if this game will be as chillingly dark as Deus Ex managed to be over a decade ago.
