Today we have three new screenshots of The Secret World showing off some in-game footage of the three locations released earlier this week, The Accursed Forest, Atlantis Island Park, and Innsmouth Academy.
Atlantic Island Park is a run-down amusement park located on the New England coast.
Innsmouth Academy was founded and constructed in 1798 (then rebuilt in 1852, 1906 and 1967, after, respectively, a devastating fire, an earthquake, and the opening of a dimensional portal in the elementalism lab) with investment from a group of mysterious benefactors — ostensibly wealthy businessmen with local ties — the Academy has endured, mostly thanks to a long row of dedicated headmasters and fiercely loyal faculty.
The Accursed Forest, located in New England, is inspired by author H.P. Lovercraft, who wrote many weird books and warned of such places.
“Beneath the dying moon, the angry sky and the dense canopy of the New England backwoods; in the shadows of towering trees and gnarly roots; below the soft soil and the pale grass, deep down in the haunted ground, in the nethermost caverns, they slept. From time to time, one of hideous things would stir, hungrily, and slowly make its way to the surface.“
