John Wick Chronicles

A first-person shooter developed with VR headsets in mind. John Wick Chronicles is based on an American action movie from 2014. The virtual adaptation of Chad Stahelski’s and David Leitch’s film was published by Starbreeze AB, the team known for such titles as The Darkness, The Chronicles of Riddick, and Payday. The protagonist is a “retired” murderer for hire, John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves in the movie. A Russian Mafioso messes with the hero and deprives him of the last reminder of his deceased wife. Wick embarks on a merciless vendetta during which blood of criminals flows like a river. While playing, we traverse various locations, interact with characters, and, first and foremost, take part in dynamic shootouts where our survival depends on our ability to avoid enemy fire and use cover. John Wick Chronicles requires a VR headset to work and supports most of the popular devices of this type.

John Wick Chronicles is a first-person shooter for PC / Windows, designed with VR headsets in mind, and based on a 2014’s American action move directed by two former stuntmen: Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. The production was announced in August, 2015, and was published the following spring by Sterbreeze, an experienced Swedish company known for such titles as Enclave, The Darkness, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons as well as The Chronicles of Riddick and Payday series. The game was developed by Grab and WEVR studios. The former previously created a tech demo called theBlu: Encounter for HTC Vive headset. Basil Iwanyk, the co-producer of the movie original, was involved in the title’s development.


Both the movie’s and the game’s protagonist is a former killer for hire named John Wick (played by Keanu Reeves) who “retired” from the business for his beloved wife. Shortly after her death, Wick’s apartment is robbed and a Russian Mafioso’s son takes the hero’s last reminder of his wife. This fact is reason enough for him to take a bloody revenge on the criminals.

Technical aspects
