It is the age of Keanussance, and Keanu Reeves is everywhere. If you thought his role as Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077 was unexpected, there is a whole game featuring Keanu Reeves as everyone’s favourite assassin, John Wick. The game is called John Wick Hex, which was revealed at E3 this year. If you are unaware, the game will be a timeline strategy game with a hex grid map. It is different from turn based strategy games as in timeline strategy, you will have to load commands for John Wick to follow for the duration of the timeline. If there are no more commands in the timeline, the game will pause. Epic says that “John Wick Hex captures the feel of the unique tactical combat from the films and blurs the line between the strategy and action video game genres.”

The story mode will feature an original story created for the game.

Bithell Games, the developers of John Wick Hex, have reported that the game will be released of 8th of October this year.

With the release date, a brand new trailer for the game was released as well. And it looks quite promising:

The game is being developed with Lionsgate, the studio which produced the John Wick movies. Which means we will get to see Ian McShane (Wilson) and Lance Reddick (Charon) as voice over artists for their characters along with Troy baker, who will voice the antagonist. It has not been revealed whether Keanu Reeves will be featured in the game or not. But Mike Bithell did say that  “an array of special guests” will appear on a panel at the New York Comic Con. Let’s hope that we get to see the Baba Yaga in the game and on the panel.

The game will be an Epic Store Exclusive, and will cost $8. It is available for pre-order now.
