The word ‘epic’ is bandied about a lot these days, whether speaking of ‘epic fails’ or something that is truly ‘epic’ in size and scope. In today’s The Secret World column, we take a look at why TSW creates and epic feel. See what you think and then leave us a comment or two.

I’m also going to quickly dive into how SWTOR managed to lose the epic feeling it tried to establish in its advertising. More importantly, I will expound on how TSW creates an epic feeling for players, despite explicitly mentioning in the opening minutes of your tale that you aren’t an epic hero, but a cog in the machine.
