John Wick Hex, which first launched for PC and Mac via the Epic Games Store in October 2019, is coming to PlayStation 4 on May 5 for $19.99, publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Bithell Games announced.
Bithell Games collaborated with Ant Workshop to redesign John Wick Hex for the DualShock 4 controller. “Wick’s every move and skills will be available at your fingertips as quick as the man himself,” Good Shepherd Entertainment stated in a press release.
While Xbox One and Switch versions were not announced, the game was recently rated for all three consoles by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
Here is an overview of the game, via Good Shepherd Entertainment:
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.
