Partake in a fast-paced action strategy title based on the hit movie series.
In perhaps one of the more shocking recent announcements, Mike Bithell (of Thomas Was Alone, Volume fame) has confirmed that he’s working on a John Wick game. John Wick Hex isn’t your typical action title though – it’s a fast paced action strategy game. It’s out on PC via the Epic Games Store first, and will come to consoles later.
The trailer below gives a very rough idea of the gameplay. The description provided of this being essentially “fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game” probably doesn’t do it either. Regardless, you’ll have to carefully select each action, with the consequences becoming immediately apparent. You even need to be careful about how much ammo is in each clip. Don’t want to reload at the worst time, right?
With a different story from the films, John Wick Hex provides new weapons and suits to unlock as players progress. You’ll explore new locations as well, with everything coated in a “graphic noir art” style. You can even expect actors like Ian McShane and Lance Reddick to lend their voices, though Keanu Reeves’ involvement is currently unknown. Check out the trailer below courtesy of IGN.
