New screenshots and a developer diary video for MMORPG The Secret World have been released by Funcom today.

The supernatural conspiracy MMO, for which our Fahey cannot contain his excitement, will be out in April 2012.

These new screenshots highlight characters from the three secret societies – the Illuminati, the Dragon, and the Templars.

Two of the screens also show off the new character facial graphics, which have been updated since earlier screenshots and videos.

The video will introduce you to the three societies, and give you a peek into the PvP aspect of the game.

Locations include such sites as Stonehenge and Eldorado, and the video also shows one of the game's "massive" warzones that hundreds of players can fight persistent PvP battles within.
