The Secret World

Infinitum Nihil, Johnny Depp’s production company, has reportedly partnered with G4C Innovation’s Gudrun Giddings to produce a TV series based on The Secret World. The Funcom MMO, published by EA, was released in 2012 and sports a 74 rating on Metacritic; it has recently been re-released as the F2P Secret Worlds Legends.

Giddings, who acquired the media rights to The Secret World in the year of its release, has been developing the project with producer Sam Sarkar from its inception, claiming ‘it’s one of the most character driven and well developed games I know of and naturally lends itself to fantastical storylines with intriguing characters,’ and had confidence it would be ‘a thrilling and binge-worthy international TV show’.

News of the partnership came through Deadline who elaborated on elements of the plot, writing how ‘it will center on a team of undercover agents and the shadowy war between secret societies: the Illuminati, Dragon and the Templar’. True to the original game, they expressed how ‘central to the plot is their battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world, and incorporates the realms of ancient myths and legends, as well as today’s conspiracy theories and headline news’. Deadline also state the show ‘is being written by James V. Hart (Hook, Crossbones) and Jake Hart, with former CSI: NY showrunner Pam Veasey on board as showrunner’.

Other games have also been slated for TV release, including Myst on Hulu and Battlefield, the rights to which were bought by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content. So far, Video game translation to other forms of entertainment media has been variably received, such as the recent Assassin’s Creed movie, but perhaps a more serious, mature approach to television adaptation could be a more successful approach. Veasey claimed to this effect, saying ‘The Secret World is the ideal gaming experience to translate into a live-action episodic adventure’.

No release date has yet been announced.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
