Second Sight Coming to the PC
by Kit

Tuesday, October 19 2004

Free Radical Designís First PC Title to Launch in November.

Codemasters today announced that a PC edition of Second Sight, the stealth action epic from Free Radical Design, is coming out in late November. Second Sight will be the first PC title from Free Radical Design, creators of the TimeSplitters series.

Second Sight gives players control of a character endowed with psychic abilities. The game offers multiple approaches to completing levels either via stealth, dramatic gunplay, psychic powers or a combination of all three.

Second Sight opens with John Vattic, the player-controlled lead character, as he awakens from a coma in a U.S. medical facility where he has been subjected to traumatic surgery and experimentation. He doesn't know his name, he can't remember his past, all he knows is that his only hope for survival is to escape and unravel the mystery that has led to his imprisonment.

Haunted by flashbacks, which are experienced as fully playable episodes within the game, and shocked by the discovery of his own psychic powers, the player takes Vattic on a search for his past and, in doing so, uncovers a fatal chain of events leading to a sinister conspiracy.

As Vattic explores his present and past, the game weaves between these two different time periods, which run through the game as a dual-narrative. The player-controlled actions of the past Vattic have consequences in the present Ė allowing a unique interaction between the player and the narrative of the game as Vatticís destiny is changed.

Vatticís telekinetic powers enable players to shift objects and terrify on-looking guards. As the game progresses and his self-awareness increases, additional abilities develop and existing powers are refined.

Codemasters will publish the PC edition of Second Sight this November. See what the future holds on the gameís website at http://www.codemasters.com/secondsight.
