John Wick fans can rejoice as the popular Lionsgate movie character will make his appearance in John Wick Hex. The game is being developed by Game Director Mike Bithell (Volume, Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular), and published by Good Shepherd Entertainment. The choreographed action will provide a unique twist by combining itself with real-time strategy, and a stylish graphic noir art design. John Wick Hex will be available for PC exclusively via the Epic Games Store at launch. This title will also be making its way to consoles.
Check out the stylish debut trailer narrated by actor Lance Reddick:
John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum releases in movie theaters May 17th with a signature combat style fans have come to expect. John Wick Hex will tell an original new story set within the universe of John Wick, but the narrative will not be directly tied to the movies. Here are more details on the gameplay as described by publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment:
“Created in close cooperation with the creative teams behind the films, John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game, capturing the series’ signature gun fu style while expanding its story universe. Players must choose every action and attack they make, while considering their immediate cost and consequences. Every move in John Wick Hex feels like a scene from the movies, and every fight contributes to your progress on the job and requires precise strategic thinking. Perform well and progress in the main story mode (which features an original story created for the game) to unlock new weapons, suit options and locations. Each weapon changes up the tactics you’ll use and the manner in which you’ll play. Ammo is finite and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make the most of weapons you scavenge on the job.”
