Funcom's massively multiplayer game, The Secret World, will launch in April 2012.
Beta registrations start on 26th August.
The news was announced at the EA press conference ahead of the gamescom convention in Cologne. EA Partners is publishing the title.
The Secret World, the next MMO from the Age of Conan developer, is set in the present day and details the adventures of three secret societies trying to combat a rising darkness in the world. It's the brainchild of Dreamfall and Longest Journey creator Ragnar Tornquist.
