If you’re a fan of the John Wick series, then you’re fully aware that John Wick: Chapter 3 is set to air next week. But beyond the films, it looks like there will be a game based on the movies as well. It’s called John Wick Hex, and it’s being made by Mike Bithell and his Bithell Games studio.
The game is being described as “fight-choreographed chess”, and is done with the help of the people behind the films. Players will have to consider every action they take and their immediate consequences. When done right, it results in sequences like the films.
John Wick Hex also features an original storyline, separate from the films. As you’d expect from a game version of the film, you get access to more weapons and equipment the more you progress through it. You’ll also need to carefully plan your loadout based on the needs of your missions.
While the game doesn’t yet have a release date, the developers already know which platforms they want to launch the game on. PC gamers are set to become the first recipients, followed by the console gamers, albeit at a later date. But it’s important to note that, on PC, it will be an Epic Games Store exclusive.
