Sierra brings the Wet-works

Publisher's latest third-person shooter brings over-the-top action to PS3, Xbox 360 in 2008.

Diving headfirst into action is never not a good idea.

Discontent over sequels, one-offs, and the lack of originality has been brewing in the game industry for some time now, and it has spurred many publishers and developers to seek out or create new, unique characters and stories.

During this year's Sierra Gamers' Week, the Vivendi-owned publisher showed off many of the original IPs it has on the horizon, including TimeShift, Prototype, and World in Conflict. Sierra also took the wraps off its latest over-the-shoulder shooter, and while it too is an all-new property, it relies heavily on the old adage that sex sells.

Developed by Montreal, Canada-based A2M, Sierra's latest offering is Wet, and it will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2008. Wet follows the tale of a young, lethal mercenary named Rubi as she sets out on a quest for revenge and wealth after having been wronged by a mysterious man who hired her.

Described as "Kill Bill meets Tomb Raider meets Prince of Persia" in GameSpot's recently posted first look, Wet features over-the-top third-person shooter action that combines acrobatic movements with fast-paced shoot-outs and sword fights. According to Sierra, players will be able to seamlessly transition from gunplay to swordplay to acrobatic maneuvers.

Wet has not yet been rated or priced.

all complaining about it being a shooter.. we are going to be seeing them for a while. why? because shooters sell simple as that.. convince people not to buy shooters and they will make rpgs.. tho new rpgs suck, rpg games hit there prime in the snes days.. *remerbers Chrono Trigger*

This game looks awesome cant wait to see more of it, I like the tarantino style it's got and the main character reminds me of a mash up between every character from kill bill

I've been looking around and I think we're going to have a huge game in the making with Wet. Not only is this shaping up to be a good game in its own right, but it might also knock Stranglehold off its perch as well. Yes, boob factor will be something to be constantly brought up, but think of it this way, the guys who made Heavenly Sword got away with it with their main character being a woman, why can't Sierra get away with it with Ruby?

lets face it guys the only reson we will gett this game and we know we will is for the boob factor, its the only reson we got tomb raider, and it works, but if it is as good as it sounds, and she remains hot, then this will be a winner

i like the fact that they are mapping the upper and lower body seperately so you might be able to do some really cool things

Can't say sex doesn't sell... but the concept of someone taking where Tomb Raider left off and building further on it with a Blood Rayne twist doesn't really grab me as totally different :| Then again, I'll most likely check out the game because its being made by folks who know their stuff. And I'm kind of curious where the "sex" part sneaks its way into the equation :oops:

I welcome new stories, character, and genres with open arms. I'm going to keep an eye on this game. I my self am sick of sequel after sequel.

If Cutscenes= gameplay, then I'll have another $60 to spend...if it's another skin baring game with nothing new... Add it to the garbage that we see now.

This game could be very fun, or it could be very generic. I guess we will have to wait for more coverage.

well yeah another shooter but the read-in-between-the-lines point is that these guys are at least trying to pump out a LOT of original games. take for example EA, on every 2 original games, there are about 30 sequels. i say kudos Sierra and hopefuly they all come out to be worth playing. on a similar note, the trailer for Timeshift on PSN was pretty cool. no gameplay but enough to get you to look more into the game.

Looks intersting, like a Quintin Tarantino movie. Whats funny though is that the developer who is making this game also made a bunch of Disney games and know they are making this violent and sexual game(of course I am referring to A2M,not Sierra).

Definitely looks like fun, I hope it works out. I'm back-logged with games to play right now, however.

"Described as "Kill Bill meets Tomb Raider meets Prince of Persia",sounds interesting.

"Kill Bill meets Tomb Raider meets Prince of Persia" sounds like a good game. The only problem is when people mix and match already good titles, they usually turn out worse than their idols individually.

Looks like another one of those games that will yet agian try and do everything the Matrix movies did. But still if done right this could be alot of fun to paly. I'll keep my eye on this one. Still you never know it could be another stinker................
