Today Funcom kicks off the Week of the Illuminati, a full week of focus on the most secret of the three secret societies that players can join in the upcoming modern-day massively multiplayer online game ‘The Secret World’. Throughout the week Funcom will be serving information, artworks, screenshots, a video, and a developer Q&A on Facebook.Which secret society do you belong with?

The Illuminati are invisible puppet-masters and corporate manipulators, and they crave power and wealth by any means necessary. They may have ancient roots, but they remain forever young and hungry. The Illuminati’s golden agents enjoy power, money and glamour – but the real power they offer you goes beyond that: Information worked from every civilian, government and clandestine organization in the world.
To kick off the week, Funcom has released a batch of new Illuminati themed artworks that can be found on the official website and on our press FTP. For the developer Q&A that will be held on Facebook on January 15th, gamers everywhere can already start submitting their questions today via the ‘Questions & Answers’ app on the page.
‘The Secret World’ is consistently mentioned as one of the most anticipated MMOs in development, breaking new grounds and genre conventions by introducing a modern-day setting, a story-focused MMO experience, and a freeform progression system using no classes and no levels. Last year Funcom announced that over 500,000 gamers are now registered for the ongoing beta testing. ‘The Secret World’ is published by Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and will ship in April 2012.
