Fans of the John Wick movies may be interested to know that a new strategy game based on the character and franchise is currently in the final stages of development. The John Wick Hex game will be launching in conjunction with the third movie in the series John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum which premiered in theatre screens worldwide just over a week’s time on May 17th, 2019.
John Wick Hex will launch on PC systems first and arrive on consoles at a later date. The PC version will be an Epic Games Store exclusive. Check out the announcement trailer below to learn more about the John Wick and what you can expect from in strategy mechanics.
“John Wick Hex is a fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game that makes you think and strike like the professional hitman of Lionsgate’s critically acclaimed film franchise. Created in close cooperation with the creative and stunt 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 the game 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 the weapons you scavenge on the job. John Wick Hex complements the style of the films with a unique graphic noir art design and features the world-class voice talents of Ian McShane and Lance Reddick amongst its stellar cast, with other cast for the game to be revealed later..”
