The lights are on
Funcom's Ragnar Tørnquist joins Respec Radio host Adam Biessener for a discussion on his soon-to-be-live MMORPG.
The Secret World puts players into one of three secret societies warring over control of hidden magical energy in our modern world. Tørnquist and his team are trying to build an honest-to-goodness story around the struggle -- except that they're not casting the player as the hero, just another warrior in the battle for mankind's future. Tørnquist doesn't channel his rage on the mic like our own Andy McNamara can, but did you really expect a Norwegian to compete with our editor-in-chief on that front?
The Secret World launches on PC on July 3, but you can start playing the head start right now with a pre-order from the retailer of your choice (may we suggest our parent company?).
Special thanks to Tørnquist for joining us on the podcast, and to Funcom for supplying the (awesome) main theme from the game for bumper music.

Three Respecs in one month?! I'm all agog :p
Finally! I feel like it's been forever since a Respec Radio that wasn't about Blizzard's game, despite many, many more interesting MMOs out there and on the horizon.
Looking forward to listening to this.
I dont know about this game, especially with a sub.
I watched some videos on youtube of this, nothings really grabbing me about this game... other than lesbians, plus points for that but overall it doesn't seem very gripping. Also, Adam, in the interview you don't sound too excited yourself, you sound concerned when you ask a lot of questions lol.
You guys are producing great content this month. Three podcast this week. 3 respecs this month. Multiple test chambers. Now time for some new stuff. Great show guys. Wish I had a pc to play this. Any idea if it will come to mac?

Im really interested in this but I have a mac and not a PC so I hope it eventually comes out for Mac!
