Age of Conan developer Funcom has reached an agreement to co-publish its latest PC MMO with EA Partners.
The upcoming action title – The Secret World – allows players to create and progress their own character without the restrictions of classes and levels.
It's the third MMO from Funcom following Anarchy Online and Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. A release date for The Secret World is yet to be announced.
Hundreds of thousands of gamers have already joined The Secret World's community, with many siding up with one of the game's three secret societies – the Illuminati, the Dragon and the Templar. Players will be able to team up and fight monsters in locations including Egypt, New England, London, New York and Seoul.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Funcom, one of the world-leaders in the development of massively multiplayer online games,” said senior VP and general manager of EA Partners David DeMartini.
Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas added: The experience and the knowledge that EA brings to the table will be instrumental in allowing us to realise the full potential of The Secret World.”
