I suppose one doesn’t hear much about The Secret World [official site] nowadays. The idea of a supernatural RPG where our modern-day world is filled with all sorts of ghosts, ghouls, cryptozoological oddities, and unspeakable horrors from beyond the stars is fantastic, but it’s a shame it’s an MMORPG.
Still, Funcom have steadily expanded the story with mini expansions called ‘Issues’ and brought it all to a head with the launch of Issue 11. ‘Reaping the Whirlwind’ wraps up season 1 (a mixed metaphor, there), showing consequences to decisions throughout the game. It visits a fine setting: the headquarters of a sinister megacorp whose supernatural experiments went awry.
