As huge John Wick fans here in the office, we were excited to learn that Starbreeze will be showcasing the newly titled first-person action shooter VR game, John Wick Chronicles, during New York Comic Con, October 6-9, 2016. The first missions of the game will be released on Steam for HTC Vive in February 2017.
New York Comic Con attendees will be able to demo a 7-minute preview of the first mission of the VR game in HTC Vive, titled John Wick Chronicles: An Eye for an Eye, at the John Wick Chronicles booth at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, hall 1E, booth 1ECC6. Additionally, a bite sized version of the game John Wick Chronicles: Arcade Edition will premiere in the StarVR HMD at the first location based IMAX VR Center, to be opened later this year in Los Angeles. Additional DLCs (downloadable content) that immerse players into the world of John Wick will be announced soon.
In John Wick Chronicles, players have the opportunity to explore the iconic Continental Hotel and are tasked with assassinating seemingly unbeatable targets that only John Wick himself could handle. The game was created by Lionsgate and Starbreeze in collaboration with Grab Games, Big Red Button and GameCo. It is inspired by Lionsgate’s hit movie John Wick starring Keanu Reeves and its sequel John Wick: Chapter 2, which hits theatres February 10, 2017.
Besides showcasing John Wick Chronicles: An Eye for an Eye, Lionsgate will also host a panel featuring Q&A with the stars and filmmakers of its upcoming feature films John Wick: Chapter 2 and Saban’s Power Rangers, as well as exclusive, never-before-seen footage from both films. The panel will be held Saturday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Those who cannot attend will be able to watch the panel LIVE on Twitch
