With most games lately doing the 2010 shuffle, Bethesda Softworks Announced to day that their “highly-stylized shooter ” Wet, starring Eliza Dushku (yum) was still on track for a September release. Originally, Wet was supposed to be published by Activision/Blizzard but then it was dropped like a bad habit. Since then the title has found a new home at the house that Fallout built, Bethesda. At first it was slated for a Tues. September 8th release, and wound up getting bumped back to the 18th. Hey at least it didn’t get dropped again altogether.
July 31, 2009 (London, UK) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, announced today that WETTM will hit European retail shelves on September 18th for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The game’s highly-stylized mix of action and acrobatics is showcased on the newly revamped web site that can be found at http://wetthegame.com.
“We are extremely excited to bring WET to gamers on September 18th,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. “A2M has created an explosive gaming experience and the action is non-stop from start to finish.”
Developed at Artificial Mind and Movement, WET throws players into a heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping adventure of double crosses and paybacks in which they’ll take on the role of problem fixer, Rubi Malone. Use Rubi’s dual pistols or samurai sword during any acrobatic move as you take on countless enemies in a number of exotic locations around the globe.
“We’ve worked really hard to make WET different from any other action game available”, said Patrick Fortier, Creative Director at A2M. “When players experience the game’s unique blend of gunplay, sword combat and acrobatics, they won’t want to put the controller down.”
On a mission to find the man that left you for dead, you’ll master the controls that will allow you to create the most incredible fight sequences – limited only by your own imagination. Once you are able to chain together a number of moves, including sliding down ladders, running on walls, jumping and flipping, you will be rewarded with auto-lock and slow motion advantages. Featuring the perfect mix of humor and violence, WET is a third-person shooter experience unlike any other.
