European developer Funcom (Age of Conan, Anarchy Online) have sent along a new trailer for their upcoming contemporary MMO The Secret World. Although not as flashy as the previous cinematic trailer
, this one does feature actual in-engine footage and provides some more insight into the lore and style of the game. Funcom's Erling Ellingson clarifies that "The video consists entirely of in-game footage, except for the obvious color modifications and distortion effects,"
The location footage consists of grainy and distorted black and white shots that give a unique and mysterious glimpse into the town of Kingsmouth – one of the many locations from all over the real world to be featured ‘The Secret World’. In the game, as the video shows, horrific events have befallen the sleepy New England town.Watch it right here on AusGamers
