Lead John Vattic, a former researcher, as he attempts to unravel a mystery that led to his imprisonment in a maximum security Medical Research Facility. As he makes his escape, Vattic discovers that he is empowered with amazing psychic abilities, capable of manipulating people and the surrounding environment.

Combining an atmospheric, psychological thriller narrative with stealth exploration and intense shooter action, Second Sight is an original property that redefines the standards for action gameplay.
