John Wick Hex is the action and strategy proposal inspired by the popular eponymous film franchise starring Keanu Reeves. The video game was announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and came to PC (via Epic Games Store) on October 8, 2019, but now it points to it also coming to Nintendo Switch.
The ESRB classifies it as not suitable for children under 17 years old. The title of Mike Bithell, known for being the author of Volume and Thomas Was Alone, has been classified on the website of the Entertainment Software Rating Board, known as ESRB, the body in charge of classifying the games according to age.
The ESRB is an American self regulatory body that rates all games, as well as all kinds of movies including movies inclusing Hollywood blockbusters, Kuttymovies 2020 releases, and other entertainment material. The company has awarded the game an M for Mature, which corresponds to “not suitable for children under 17 years”. This means that the game may contain violent scenes, blood, and offensive vocabulary.
The author of the game, Mike Bithell, spoke some time ago about his innovative way of telling the story. “There are stories that we can tell in an interesting way, and I think there is much more variety than before. I no longer think that people think that success is achieved by paying for a license and creating the clone of a successful game. Innovation, a and again, it has proven to be the best option for gaining visibility. ”
John Wick Hex will show us an unpublished story that has been developed exclusively for this game. As we move forward, new weapons, gear, and locations will be unlocked to honor the popular movie franchise. The story of how it was created is quite interesting, as its own creators claimed that the game was “worse than you could imagine.”
