Second sight, first look

Free Radical, the UK-based developer behind the TimeSplitters series, has announced the first details of a second project, Second Sight.

The story runs along the same lines as Namco’s Breakdown as the player takes control of an amnesiac who wakes up in a lab and discovers he has superhuman abilities.

The game is quite advanced in terms of development, and Free Radical expects it to be ready by the end of the year. This surprisingly late announcement may have something to do with the fact that the game was rumoured to be part of Activision’s 2003 E3 line up, but never showed up.

Free Radical recently announced a deal with Electronic Arts to publish the third TimeSplitters game, so it looks likely that Second Sight may fall into the same hands, although no publisher has yet been announced.
