With all of Earth's conspiracy, mythology, and theology at their fingertips Funcom has a broad spectrum of horrible things to visit upon the players on modern day MMO The Secret World. In the Scorched Desert of Egypt, things get biblical.
If those are the locusts, I don't want to see the frogs. Rather than leaning on the obvious mummy crutch, Funcom brings back the Plagues of Egypt in The Secret World, killing fish, swarming locusts, and turning off the lights on player characters foolish enough to make their way down the Nile.
Just another example of the sort of fun game makers can have when they start exploring our own odd little world.
