Free Radical Announces Second Sight
« on: February 24, 2004, 12:30:39 PM »
The folks behind the TimeSplitters series set their sights on all consoles.


NOTTINGHAM, UK -- 24 February 2004 -- Free Radical Design, developer of the highly successful and critically acclaimed TimeSplitters series announces their latest game, Second Sight.

Combining an immersive thriller storyline with paranormal psychic abilities, stealthy exploration and intense shooter action "Second Sight" redefines the standards for action adventure narrative and gameplay (for PlayStation2, Xbox and Gamecube).

"like he's ever getting out - he's a psycho killer."

John Vattic awakens from a coma in a sinister US medical facility where he has been subjected to traumatic surgery and experimentation.

His body and mind are broken, 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.

Finding fragments of the past reveals his previous involvement in a covert military mission investigating psychic research in Siberia...

... A mission that went horribly wrong.

... A mission that empowered him with awesome psychic abilities which can devastate the people and world around him.

Haunted by flashbacks, tormented by his powers and gripped by the fear that he may have been somehow to blame for what happened in Siberia, John Vattic begins searching for survivors from the failed expedition and uncovers a fatal chain of events leading to a sinister conspiracy and sickening abuse of power.

David Doak, Director of Free Radical, says "Second Sight realises our ambitions to create exciting fresh IP and innovate in a new genre. It brings together great gameplay and a compelling story - everyone at Free Radical is really excited about this one."

Steve Ellis, Director of Free Radical, says "Second Sight marks an important step in the expansion of Free Radical. The company has grown to two talented teams, developing two great original products. We've come a long way in 5 years."

Development of Second Sight will be completed shortly, with an anticipated worldwide release later in 2004.

Special thanks to professional666 for the tip.

A really cheesy storyline and Free Radical's humour will make for a genuinely funny game; we need more British humour

If there's one team I'd trust to work the 'psychic abilites' into a solid and intuitive gameplay mechanic, it's Free Radical.

Hopefully a GCN-friendly publisher will pick this one up, question is: who?

That sounds like XIII without comic graphics and addition of The Force. NEXT!

Why am I thinking Goldeneye + XIII?

Jeez, they must have kept this one secret for a while. The developments already almost done? wow.

Actually, it's been known that this game has been in development for a long time...Though this is the first time with actual screens...

I say let them get it out so they can get working on TS3!
