The wait for everyone that has yet to have a chance to play John Wick Hex is almost over as the game will be coming to the Xbox One and Switch in December. It has been one long journey since it was announced and we saw its first launch on the PC and then PS4. Why there was a long wait for this from Bithell Games, I am not sure. That does not change the fact that we will be seeing John Wick Hex hit those platforms on December 4th now so all gamers should have a chance to play. Just in case you held off up until now for some reason.
If you have been left out of the John Wick Hex fun before now, it is one of the first video games inspired by the famed film franchise that will let us all take on the role of the titular character as we move into a turn-based system that helps us plan and move with all the gun-fu we should expect. That and have the ability to replay the scenes again to see the action play out as smooth as it would in any of the John Wick films. You can see all kinds of video of it out there already, but soon a whole new wave of gamers will be able to add to all of that too.
John Wick Hex — Become The Baba Yaga
John Wick Hex will be available both digitally and in retail on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on December 4, 2020.
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 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, Lance Reddick, and Troy Baker amongst its stellar cast.
Have you been waiting for John Wick Hex to hit these platforms or did you dive in back when it first launched? Do you think it is truly capturing the fun of the films or is it just a tie-in to keep us going until the next one? Do you think that we will see this one get a full upgrade for the next-gen systems too or will it only be a backward title for it all? Let us have those thoughts down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all. If there is more for John Wick Hex, we will place it on the site for you. Just be sure to keep checking back for all of that and more.
