'John Wick Hex' Available Now on PC and Mac
Mike Bithell’s take on the John Wick phenomenon, John Wick Hex, a ‘timeline’ strategy game, is out today on PC and Mac via the Epic Games Store.
The game sees players, as Wick, taking out enemies using whatever is at hand using a very unique time-based mechanic that teaches you how to ‘flow’ through combat so your enemies will miss their shots and you’ll have a chance to hit yours.
