presidents, where vampires are more than just a Hollywood fantasy, and

World is an MMO that breaks free from the confinements of character
classes and levels and allows players to explore real-world locations
with an engrossing storyline. Funcom will not only challenge but redefine
long-established MMO standards.

than it is now," says Senior Producer and Creative Director Ragnar
Tørnquist. "The progress we are making in development allows the whole
