Bethesda Gets Wet This Fall

By on

Bethesda is on a roll! I was wondering what surprises they would have for us this fall. Eliza Dushku is the second Hollywood voice they’ve added to roster this year. Start saving your money for November. Here’s the full release from Bethesda:

Bethesda Softworks to Publish WET for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3

Innovative Shooter Allows Gamers to “Shoot Anytime, Anywhere”
April 27, 2009 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks(r), a ZeniMax(r) Media company,
announced today that it will publish WETTM, an innovative action game from
Artificial Mind and Movement (A2M). WET, in development for the Xbox 360(r)video
game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION(r)3 computer
entertainment system, is slated for a Fall 2009 release.

WET is a highly stylized third-person shooter that seamlessly blends acrobatics, gun
play, and sword kills. With dual pistols and a samurai sword, you can engage in
combat while sliding on floors, running on walls, jumping, flipping, and performing
amazing acrobatic moves – leaving a massive body count in your wake.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to bring WET to all gamers,” said Vlatko
Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. “Our proven success as a publisher which
focuses on select, innovative titles matches up perfectly with WET’s new class of
gameplay.”

“We were looking for a publisher who shares and supports our creative vision of
bringing a stylized, daring approach to the shooting genre”, said Patrick Fortier,
Creative Director at A2M. “With its impressive track record, Bethesda Softworks is
the ideal publisher for WET and we are thrilled to be working together.”

WET puts you in the role of Rubi Malone, a gun-for-hire, who has expertise in
wetworks – covert operations that get a little messy. As Rubi, you embark on a story
full of double crosses and paybacks as you visit locations around the world.
Featuring a mix of humor and violence, a unique retro film visual treatment, and an
original 70’s-inspired music, WET is a third- person shooter experience unlike any
other.

Voicing Rubi Malone is actress Eliza Dushku, star of Fox’s Sci-Fi thriller series
“Dollhouse.” Dushku starred in the box office hit “Bring It On” and the television
series “Tru Calling.” She is also well-known for her recurring roles on “Buffy the
Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.”
