John Wick Hex Arrives on PS4, May 5th
John Wick Hex is a wickedly addictive strategy game that masquerades as an action title. As John Wick players have to fit their extensive moveset, maneuvering, and consideration of enemy actions into the timeline – succeed and you’ll dispatch them neatly and without taking damage. Fail, and the consequences are high.
I loved the game when it hit PC and will be checking it out when it arrives on PS4, May 5th. I’m not sure how well the game will translate across to the controller, but I have faith in Bithell Games and Ant Workshop to make it work.
Check out the trailer here, and here’s the press release:
JOHN WICK HEX COMING TO PLAYSTATION®4 ON MAY 5
Experience the thrilling timeline strategy game from Good Shepherd Entertainment, Lionsgate and Bithell Games for the very first time on consoles
AMSTERDAM & LOS ANGELES — April 2, 2020 — Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment, global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) and independent developer Bithell Games have announced that the action-oriented timeline strategy game John Wick Hex is coming to PlayStation®4 on May 5.
Building on their work from the original PC title, Bithell Games (Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular) has collaborated with Ant Workshop to redesign John Wick Hex for the PlayStation®4’s DualShock 4 controller. Wick’s every move and skills will be available at your fingertips as quick as the man himself.
John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life. It expands on the John Wick universe with a new storyline, unique graphic noir art design, and the world-class voice talents of Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Troy Baker. The game also includes a riveting original score by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Flow, the Banner Saga series).
Created in close collaboration with the creative and stunt teams behind Lionsgate’s hit franchise, John Wick Hex captures the unique feel of tactical combat from the films, blurring the line between strategy and action. Each move has its own risks and consequences, and every weapon changes the tactics at hand. Ammo is limited and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make each choice count.
John Wick Hex will be available for $19.99 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Store on May 5. John Wick Hex is currently available for Windows PC and Mac exclusively via the Epic Games Store. For more details, visit JohnWickHex.com, and follow @mikeBithell and @GoodShepherdEnt on Twitter.
