“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,” said the press release.

John Wick Hex will feature a new story to shoot your way through and will also include unlockables such as weapons, locations and most importantly – suits.
There has been no word on whether any very good doggos will be involved AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BAD HAPPEN TO THEM.
There’s no release date yet, but we do know that it will be coming to some undisclosed consoles and will be available on PC and Mac exclusively on the Epic Games store when it launches.
We’ll be gagging for it until then.
