Funcom's upcoming MMORPG The Secret World is attracting a lot of attention from PC gamers. The developer announced today that 500,000 people have signed up for the beta test.
"We are thrilled to see the amount of interest The Secret World is generating among gamers and the press, and exceeding half a million beta registrations six months before release is definitely something we are proud of,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “The gamer interest in The Secret World and the community size for the game is even greater than we experienced with ‘Age of Conan’ at the same stage of development."
"We expect the community size to keep on expanding at an ever faster pace in the coming months as we approach Open Beta and launch.”
Secret World takes place in the modern day, albeit with a dark fantasy twist. The world is controlled by ancient secret societies and mankind is threatened by demons, vampires and other monsters. Players can travel across the world and through time to investigate and stop the various evils plaguing the world.
World is currently in closed beta. Funcom is inviting more and more testers over time to get feedback on the game's quality. For a chance at an invite, head to the game's website. The official launch of the game is expected in April 2012.
