The Secret World Description
The Secret World is set in a fictional alternate Earth where different factions employ their agents in discovering plots and threats coming from alien and supernatural forces. There are elements of gothic horror, dark fantasy, and alien invasion incorporated in The Secret World's lore.
Players create characters that belong to one of the three major factions in The Secret World: The Dragon, the Illuminati, or the Templars. The choice of faction determines their home city, faction-specific missions and goals, and their allies (NPCs and in PVP). Players can further customize and personalize their characters by modifying gender, height, face, makeup, hair style, and clothing.
The Secret World uses Ability Wheels which is uses to track what abilities characters can use, as well as their level of progress in those skills. Players can use Decks which store and pre-determine build templates to quickly shift between abilities and weapon loadouts. There are 11 Decks for every Faction and there are 525 abilities to mix and match.
Combat in The Secret World can be tab-targeted or by using crosshairs. Successful combat is largely dependent on effective use of weapons and ability combinations. As a player character can only have 7 active and 7 passive abilities at any one time, being able to quickly switch using Decks for the right situations can be critical to pull off.
The Secret World also has four types of PvP modes: Fusang Projects (which is a capture and hold facilities type of mode), El Dorado (a timed capture the flag mode), Stonehenge (king of the hill style mode), and Shambala (two-team deathmatch). PvP in The Secret World rewards players with currency, though the Shambala mode awards signets.
