John Wick Hex Revealed as New Action Strategy Game

Bithell Games, studio of Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone and Volume fame, has announced it’s teaming up with Good Shepard Entertainment and Lionsgate Films to work on an official game set in the John Wick universe just in time for the release of the third film in the series Entitled John Wick Hex, the game is set to be ‘a fast paced action-orientated strategy game’ where you take on the mantle of the titular assassin by choosing each action and attack you make, being mindful of your resources to not leave yourself in a bind when it’s your enemies’ turn to act. The fight scenes have actually been developed in cooperation with the actual creative and stunt teams from the movie for added authenticity.

Today Lionsgate and publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment have announced John Wick Hex, a strategy game based on the titular hitman, coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store for PC and Mac at launch with a console release planned for a later date.

Created in close cooperation with the creative teams behind the films, John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game, capturing the series’ signature gun fu style while expanding its story universe. 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. Perform well and progress in the main story mode (which features an original story created for the game) to unlock new weapons, suit options and locations. Each weapon changes up the tactics you’ll use and the manner in which you’ll play. Ammo is finite and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make the most of weapons you scavenge on the job. John Wick Hex complements the style of the films with a unique graphic noir art design and features the world class voice talents of Ian McShane and Lance Reddick amongst its stellar cast, with more to be revealed later.

Black Chantry Productions brings classic Vampire: The Masquerade-themed card game back to unlife

NOTTINGHAM – April 24, 2018

“We are really excited to do this, together with White Wolf Entertainment. Players all over the world have hungered for new cards for eight long years, and we are proud to serve. And of course, we aim to attract many new players too”, says Hugh Angseesing, CEO of Black Chantry Productions.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle has been called the best multiplayer collectible card game ever published. It is loved for its blend of strategy and social interaction, set in the classic urban horror game setting World of Darkness, home of the role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle has a vibrant player base all over the world, with both casual gamers around kitchen tables and those who travel to face the best competition. Hundreds of tournaments are played each year, including continental championships and a Grand Prix circuit in Europe.

Black Chantry Productions hope to both rekindle old players and attract new blood. The company is composed of five veteran Vampire: The Eternal Struggle players from five different countries and with various competences – ranging from art and finance to software design and marketing. All five have been active in the player community for many years, organising tournaments and promoting the game during its commercial absence.

“We are very passionate about this game, and we want to do everything right. White Wolf has trusted us with the license for this precious gem, a true masterpiece in the history of strategy games, and we have every intention to care for it”, says Hugh Angseesing.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle will be developed in concert with White Wolf Entertainment’s plans for the World of Darkness setting, and as an integrated part of their transmedia experience – all sorts of games and fiction set in the same shared world.

“Vampire: The Eternal Struggle has always been a one-of-a-kind. It is a game that defies established genres and has held its own for decades, a testament to its genius and original design. We at White Wolf are proud to be a part of the revival of what can truly be considered a classic”, says Karim Muammar, Creative Development, White Wolf Entertainment.
