Good Shepherd Entertainment and Lionsgate have announced a new video game based on the John Wick film series.

In development by Bithell Games, John Wick Hex is an action-strategy game that aims to accompany the upcoming film John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum. The game’s creative director, Mike Bithell, is known for narrative adventures Thomas Was AloneVolume, and Subsurface Circular.

The creative and stunt teams behind the film series helped the developer with some of the game’s fight choreography. Each move has consequences to the progress of the story, and were designed to feel like a film scene.

John Wick Hex features an original story, and will allow players to unlock weapons, locations, and suit options. Weapons and ammunition are simulated realistically.

Actors Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are lending their voices to the game, alongside other unannounced actors. The game’s art style will reflect classic noir designs.

The game is currently in development for consoles, PC, and Mac. For the latter two platforms, the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store at launch.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players



Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
