So, I didn't see any threads on this one, Funcoms current project after the failure of Age of Conan, however, these are some rather different developers than the ones behind AoC.. I don't know how combat will be or what PVP will be like, beta starts August 26th and I know that the game is entirely skill based, no levels or classes..

The story appears to be set in a near-apocalyptic or pre-apocalyptic setting, you're living in the time before it happens.

What I know about so far is that TSW is our world. Only, all the myths, legends, folklore tales, urban legends and conspiracy theories that people dismissed as fairy tales and fiction, actually are true. It's just that the general populace have been kept in the unknown by secret societies that have been working hard to get all those incidents covered up and buried deep in records and archives to be forgotten by the normal world. Only that secret war that had gone on for ages is slowly becoming harder and harder to remain secret because of certain events that are unfolding.

Why people have powers is actually still a topic of speculation on the official boards, but from what could be gleaned so far, it looks like it's one of the means that the planet uses to protect itself from some unknown threat, not from this world or realm, that causes strange phenomena and bizarre incidents to get even more ramped up and go haywire all over the world. Sort of like antibodies that increase in numbers when the human body gets infested and sick. However, that's not officially confirmed, but just speculations based on what has been revealed so far.

I am not super-hyped up about the game because after-all, it is Funcom, they are known to fail, but it does look promising and it is different for a change from the Fantasy/Sci-Fi MMORPGs.. I am definitely going to try it when it comes out.. I know that games based on Real Life have to have a super amount of content in order to actually be good, one of the things I did not like about APB was that it didn't have enough content, I am already living in real life and I can do what I want in real life.. Anyhow, here is the trailer..

Funcom is a big fail of a company, nobody should buy their crap anymore in punishment for one of the most epic mmorpg failures of all time.

If you ever believe the lies from Funcom, you are a fool. They sure pulled a fast one on the world with AOC, but never again thanks.

Fool me once shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me.

Fuck them, that game will be overhyped bullshit just watch.

Pretty spot on.

I was following the game for a couple years and the 'idea' sounded decent so I continued to keep an eye on it. The first time I saw the game itself I was pretty depressed to say the least. At least I didn't spend any cash:O

I hate Funcom for what they did with AoC.

I find the premise interesting, but it is Funcom so I will be steering WELL away from it.

My advice is you do the same.

As far as I know the game will have a hun that connect various separate maps. When they decided to develop games again that are continuous worlds that are not running in separate instances, then I might consider mmo's again.

Stop saying its gonna suck until you try it.
Conan was no failure for Funcom, they got a fuckload of money from it(I didnt like it either but I felt in the superduperhype).

anarchy online was one of the best pvp mmo's ever... they need that team to do the work on this game. AOC was just too disappointing, but i played AO for 8+ years... amazing game.. 220/30 soli doc holla!

This.

I always cite Anarchy Online as one of the premiere examples of how original ideas can be successful in the industry...

That being said, TSW looks bad because it -is- bad.

Haven't been following it much, but I'm pretty sure they stated it wouldn't have those things.
