Lionsgate and Good Shepherd Entertainment are engaged on a captivating new sport primarily based on the John Wick movie franchise.
Called John Wick Hex, this upcoming sport is surprisingly not one other third or first-person shooter that includes characters and areas from the franchise. Developed by Mike Bithell (maybe greatest recognized for the indie sport Thomas Was Alone), John Wick Hex is described as “fight-choreographed chess.” In it, you may management John Wick and information him by way of varied puzzle-like ranges that require him to take out his enemies as effectively as doable.
It’s not solely clear how that is going to work, however the glimpses of the gameplay that we see within the trailer counsel that this sport goes to play equally to an isometric technique title. However, there additionally appears to be a form of motion bar which suggests that you will have to plan and execute your strikes in a selected sequence in an effort to survive encounters. We think about there are fairly a number of methods you may escape every state of affairs, however it appears that you will have to handle some form of assets alongside the way in which that may decide what number of strikes (and what strikes) you may pull off in a sequence.
John Wick Hex additionally boasts a colourful artwork type (known as graphic artwork noir) that instantly stands out in addition to the voice of Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and different characters from the sequence. It’s not clear when this film takes place, however it would inform an authentic story that’s seemingly separate ultimately from the precise occasions of the movie.
Honestly, this venture appears superb. We would have settled for a Max Payne-like sport primarily based on the John Wick sequence, however this can be a much more intelligent method to recreate the well-known motion scenes of the movie whereas revisiting a style that does not get a lot love nowadays.
