Archer MacLean is a name you might well recognise. He's the founder of legendary dev team Awesome Developments and the author of back-in-the-day classics such as IK+. More recently he's produced titles such as Archer MacLean's Mercury. In short he's got a fair few classics on his CV - so it's good to know his studio, Awesome Play, is working on a brand new title.
Bethesda, publisher of the mighty Fallout 3 and the Elder Scrolls series, has confirmed that both sexy action thriller WET and Wii-exclusive racer Wheelspin will be playable at our wonderful Expo in October.
Fresh from the stable of Archer McLean's Awesome Team studio, Wheelspin is a frenetic, futuristic racer which squeezes an incredible 60fps from the Wii's diminutive frame, embracing the values of instant fun and multiplayer enjoyment with its instinctive controls and eight-person local multiplayer.
There are races, time trials and a battle mode on offer in the full game, and we're hoping to see them all in full effect on the show floor. We're also cooking up a preview on playable code now, so keep your eyes peeled.
Bethesda has snapped up Archer Maclean's Wii-exclusive racer Wheelspin, and plans a release sometime this autumn.
