The launch trailer for new MMO The Secret World marries scenes from the game with Max Richter's moving re-arrangement of Dinah Washington track This Bitter Earth.

The game pits three secret societies against each other - the Templars, Illuminati, and chaotic Dragon group - while throwing myths, monsters, and modern-day locations into the mix.

The Secret World is one of a number of Massively Multiplayer Online games attempting to revitalize the genre.

Rift, Tera, Wakfu and Star Wars: The Old Republic all launched in 2011, utilizing World of Warcraft-style subscription models; August's Guild Wars 2 proposes a shake-up by requiring a single up-front purchase.
