John Wick Hex releases on May 5th on PC and Playstation 4, giving us something to look forward to in these dark times.
John Wick Hex will soon be here to avenge the last two months of our lives. If you’re like me, you’re probably a little stir crazy. I haven’t spent this much time playing games and watching movies since I was stuck on a breathing machine pre-puberty. But thank whatever higher power for video games and movies! Good Shepherd Entertainment, Lionsgate, and independent developer Bithell Games have teamed up to bring us the epitomic combination of movie and video game with John Wick Hex.
Bithell Games worked closely with the stunt team behind the hit franchise to capture the unique feel of the John Wick franchise. The game blurs the line between strategy and action gaming, making every one of Wick’s moves and skills available at our fingertips. The game is said to be fight-choreographed chess brought to life and will also include an original score by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Flow, the Banner Saga series).
The game will release on PlayStation 4, via the PlayStation Store, and Windows PC and Mac, exclusively via the Epic Game Store, on May 5th, 2020. For more information visit JohnWickHex.com, and follow @mikeBithell and @GoodShepherdEnt on Twitter.
