John Wick Hex Released

John Wick Hex is now available for Windows and macOS on the Epic Games Store, offering a stylized strategy shooter based on the stylized action movies. You can check out some of that style in the Launch Walkthrough Video and read on for more on the game:

Developed by the acclaimed Bithell Games (Volume, Thomas Was Alone), John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life as an action-oriented timeline strategy game, capturing the series’ signature gun fu fun and style. It expands on the series’ universe with an original storyline, unique graphic noir art design, and the world-class voice talents of Ian McShane and Lance Reddick, reprising their revered roles from the films, and Troy Baker as the titular antagonist, Hex.

John Wick Hex includes a riveting original score composed by Grammy nominated composer, Austin Wintory (Journey, Flow, the Banner Saga series).

Created in close cooperation with the creative and stunt teams behind Lionsgate’s hit franchise, every move in John Wick Hex hits like a scene from the movies, letting you feel like the legendary assassin himself. Each action you choose has risks and consequences, and every weapon changes the tactics at hand. Ammo is finite and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make each decision count.

I got it during the "fortnite"-sale some time back and have played a couple of hours.

It's a good enough puzzle-shooter. It's simple in every aspect, but for me everything has worked well and been intuitive.

I'm not a huge fan of the movies, but I liked the style of the game and that's why I got it. It has elements of superhot ape out and my friend pedro, but is definitely not very similar to any of those games.

Most of all it is fairly relaxing step-by-step action (with more focus on step-by-step than action) game in a fairly interesting setting. Art style carries it for me.

My main criticism is that the game (so far a couple of hours in) doesn't do a very good job of making you feel bad ass, which makes it sort of miss the mark a bit.

All in all I am enjoying it.

If hardware utilisation is your benchmark for quality then you are in luck. I there is some good free benchmark and stress test software for your... enjoyment.

Superposition was actually pretty badass to watch. On a more serious note, the first thing I did after building this system and doing burn-in was install Total War Rome 2, crank everything up to max, and play. Smooth as laminar flow.

I don't care what platform a game is on so that is not it.

This looks like a mobile game, one in wherein my GPU would be 80% underutilized.

That new Call of Duty looks like it will exercise your GPU.

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
