After years of teases, Age of Conan and Anarchy Online developer Funcom has released the first screenshots from its third massively multiplayer title, The Secret World.

Conceived and directed by The Longest Journey creator Ragnar Tornquist, the modern-day MMO tells of a supernatural conflict involving three secret societies: the Illuminati, the Dragon and the Templars.

Still no word as to when the PC and Xbox 360 title will launch, but beta signups are now open through a secret society placement test.

Creator of the acclaimed The Longest Journey adventure series Ragnar Tornquist wrote on his blog that the episodic sequel Dreamfall Chapters may be low on developer Funcom's list of priorities, but is still in the works.
