AMSTERDAM & LOS ANGELES — May 5, 2020 — Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment, global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) and independent developer Bithell Games have released John Wick Hex on PlayStation®4. This unique action-driven timeline strategy game is available today for €19.99 via the PlayStation®Store.
John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life, expanding on the John Wick universe with a new storyline, gripping graphic noir art design, and the world-class voice talents of Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Troy Baker. The game also features a riveting original score from 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 action and strategy. Each move has its own risks and rewards, and every weapon changes the tactics at hand. Ammo is limited and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make each choice count.
Bithell Games (Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular) has collaborated with Ant Workshop to redesign John Wick Hex for consoles after its original debut on Windows PC and Mac via the Epic Games Store. All of Wick’s skills are at your command quickly and easily using the PlayStation®4’s DualShock 4 controller.
