John Wick Hex Release Date Announced With Spectacularly Neon Trailer (VIDEO)
Whether it’s Keanu Reeves that makes the franchise or it’s the badass character that is John Wick, there’s a lot to love about said series. Based on the comic series by Dynamite Entertainment, the film adaptations were phenomenal hits among movie-goers and critics. Instead of keeping the action between those two mediums, developer Bithell Games has a video game adaptation coming soon in John Wick Hex. Check out the trailer below:
John Wick Hex is a “fight-choreographed chess” that prioritizes the signature “gun fu” style of the films. Heading to PC and Mac as an Epic Games Store exclusive, this action-packed strategy game balances between the graphic noir art style with pops of neon. Need more before diving into the hype? Here’s what the teams say John Wick Hex has to offer:
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 make quick decisions and choose every action and attack they make, all the while considering their immediate cost and consequences.
Featuring a unique blend of strategic momentum-based combat, John Wick Hex captures the feel of the unique tactical combat from the films and blurs the line between the strategy and action video game genres. 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.”
