Second Sight Ships to Retail
2/15/2005 2:53:00 PM
Our friends at Codemasters let us know that they have just shipped the PC version of Second Sight
to retailers across the nation. Although it wasn't all that well received on the consoles, it was one of the more interesting titles available at E3 last year. Its psychic concepts meshed well with the gunplay and it had a chance to be a sleeper hit. Oh well, maybe the controls have been refined for the PC version. At least the $19.99 price tag is right.
SECOND SIGHT PC SHIPS TO STORES NATIONWIDE
Free Radical Designâ€™s Stealth Action Thriller
Now Shipping for the PC
New York â€“ Feb. 15, 2005 â€“ Codemasters announced today the acclaimed stealth action title Second Sight has shipped to retail outlets nationwide for the PC. Second Sight is the first PC title from Free Radical Design, creators of the TimeSplittersÂ series. Second Sight is also currently available for next generation consoles.
John Vattic awakens to find himself held captive in a medical facility and the subject of bizarre experimentation. He doesn't know his name, he can't remember his past â€“ all he knows is that his only hope for survival is to escape and unravel the mystery that has led to his imprisonment. As he makes his escape, Vattic discovers that he is empowered with amazing psionic abilities, capable of manipulating people and the surrounding environment. Providing a totally fresh dynamic, gameplay offers multiple approaches to completing levels either via stealth, dramatic gunplay, paranormal powers or a combination of all three.
Second Sight introduces a unique dual-time narrative where flashbacks are experienced as fully playable episodes. Actions that take place in these flashbacks can alter events when Vattic returns to the present, creating an original and dynamic storyline structure.
Second Sight is rated T for Teen by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board and carries a suggested retail price of $19.99. For more information visit the Second Sight web site at http://www.codemasters.com/secondsight.
