Good Shepherd Entertainment announced the new platforms on which John Wick Hex will be available as the exclusivity period has passed.

Nintendo Switch players along with the PC ones who prefer Steam over Epic Games Store and Xbox One users will finally get to experience John Wick Hex on December 4, 2020. 

The game puts the players into the fancy shoes of the titular assassin during the time he was still not a rogue retiree on quest for vengeance but rather still active.

Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are reprising their roles of Winston and Charon in the great dialogue pieces that serve to further the story and explain why they are held captive by the game's villain, Hex.

This character is an original since he doesn't appear in the movies but his motives are somewhat one-dimensional and while the dialogue is great, the story suffers from players sometimes not being able to take Hex seriously. 

Gameplay in this game is not entirely real-time nor is it completely turn-based. John will go around his gun-fu business in a turn-based mode that is represented on a timeline and players choose which action to take in order to shoot, maim, distract or physically assault the enemies before they have a chance to react.

The art style is a bit odd and may not be able to satisfy all the players but the real issue are the animations that hold back one of the features that were supposed to be the game's highlight - replays that unfold in real-time, completely comprised of the moves you made through the level.

All the new platforms will have John Wick Hex for sale at $19.99 / €19.99.
