Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Bithell Games have announced that John Wick Hex will be coming to PlayStation 4 on May 5.
The game originally launched on PC back in October 2019 so this will be the first time console players will get to play it. Bithell Games has also collaborated with Ant Workshop to redesign the game for the Dualshock 4 controller. The publisher describes it now as “Wick’s every move and skills will be available at your fingertips as quick as the man himself.” The game will be available on the PlayStation Store for $19.99.
Bithell Games is of course the same developer behind other great titles such as Thomas Was Alone and Volume. You can watch the PS4 trailer for this below and read more about the game.
John Wick Hex is the first John Wick console game inspired by Lionsgate’s hit action franchise. From acclaimed game director Mike Bithell (Volume, Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular), John Wick Hex is a fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game that makes you think and strike like the professional hitman.
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 choose every action and attack they make, while considering their immediate cost and consequences. Every move in John Wick Hex 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 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, Lance Reddick, and Troy Baker amongst its stellar cast.
