MMO News Wrap-Up

Welcome back to another MMO news wrap-up, where this week the major stories involved The Secret World, Aion, World of Warcraft, TERA, Star Wars: The Old Republic, EverQuest, All Points Bulletin, Star Trek Online, Global Agenda, EVE Online and Guild Wars 2. The game director of Funcom’s upcoming MMO The Secret World, Ragnar Tørnquist, revealed several fun facts about the game in a recent interview. It turns out that, like BioWare’s epic-in-the-works Star Wars: The Old Republic, TSW will feature full voice-over for every single NPC in the game. That’s quite a task, requiring hundreds of hours of recording by actors to be inserted into the game, but it’ll really help immersion. Tørnquist also revealed that there will be PvP Arenas in TSW, presumably allowing players from the game’s different factions, the Templars, the Illuminate and Dragon, to battle it out for supremacy. Read more after the break:
