Arriving hot on the heels of the third entry in the excellent film series, John Wick Hex is releasing on PC and Mac on October 8.

John Wick Hex is the 'out of left-field' video game adaptation developed by Bithell Games, the talented developer behind Thomas Was Alone and Volume. Instead of being a typical shooter, Hex is a strategy game where players must plan out their moves ahead of time with menu-driven choices. Players will then be able to essentially press play on their plan of attack to watch how their decisions pan out.

Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are back to reprise their film roles and will be joined by voice actor veteran, Troy Baker in the titular role of the game's villain, Hex. It looks like Keanu Reeves may have been too busy working on Cyberpunk to lend his vocal talent, but we're yet to receive confirmation. It's certainly an unexpected direction for a game based on such an action-packed series, but I'm intrigued to see if Bithell and his team can pull it off.
