Flashback: The Secret World Teaser Trailers

If you've been reading this blog since the very beginning, you may recall me saying that when I first heard about The Secret World, I was absolutely convinced that I would hate it. Of course, back then, I'd never seen any of the fantastic trailers that came out months (if not years) before the game launched. Dante sent me the links to the videos last night and my reaction to him was: "Why have you never shown me these before? I wouldn't have bitched about the game so much if you did!"

The only videos I'd ever seen of The Secret World prior to last night were gameplay trailers and the Cynical Brit's video reviews of TSW during beta. I might be alone in my obliviousness to these wonderful trailers, but for the benefit of people who are in the same boat I was in, here are the four teaser trailers, in order, courtesy of Mahalo:

I tell you, these sent chills up my spine when I watched them. 


  1. Wow, thanks! I'd only seen the last video, before. What stands out to me as brilliant is the three separate characters coming together in the final video. And, I had to go back and check, but these are /also/ the same three you meet during the Tokyo Flashback in your initiation!

    So yeah, these videos give me shivers too, but even more so now that I know more about what's going on in the game. :-}

    1. Yes, they're the same ones! I was also really happy to watch these videos again recently, since the characters didn't have the same meaning before that they do now. Seeing them again in action, as it were, was electrifying. :)
