Fan-favorite action flick series John Wick is getting his own video game, and preliminary impressions are good. And with director Mike Bithell (Thomas Was Alone, Volume) at the helm, this action-strategy mashup looks promising already.
What’s interesting about this game, at least what we see in the trailer, is they appear to have captured the high-velocity fast-paced action sequences that made John Wick stand out as an modern action series. The difference here, however, is this isn’t an action game like Apex Legends. It’s a strategy/tactics game, similar to the XCOM series.
The below screenshot gives us an idea of the graphics, how the sequences will play out, and what choices you’ll have to take down in-game enemies. Each action, such as takedowns, parries, strikes and shots have a certain chance of landing and do varying levels of damage. The eyeball indicator may represent how many enemies see what you’re doing.
Take a look at the trailer below to see in-game action in motion and see how the world of John Wick is being re-imagined in a comic-book noire style. And, if you’re a fan of the series, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum comes out May 16th.
