John Wick Chronicles, a virtual reality title for the HTC Vive, has launched today in conjunction with the release of its neo-noir action thriller movie counterpart, “John Wick: Chapter 2”. This title is a licensed VR movie tie-in from Starbreeze.
John Wick Chronicles is a first person action title that is set in the Continental Hotel, an iconic locale of the movie. Player assumes the role of the movie, John Wick, a legendary assassin who has to head into the world of hired guns where assassination is aplenty.
This title has got 1 firing mode at the start. After the game has been cleared, an additional Simulation mode (manual reloading) will be unlocked.. As an assassin, you have access to a wide range of arsenal, from handguns to grenades, sniper rifles and submachine guns to gun down any opposing assassins that are looking to take you out for the money, and these goons attack in various forms, including helicopters and snipers.
In this game, there’s no locomotion as it is really a turrent wave based shooter. This is a room-scale only title, and player will have to actually shift the body to take cover behind barricades (in one instance, the player can also shifts some barricades position). Movement in this game is largely done as elevators.
There are 4 areas: a Training Room, Garage, Rooftop and Yacht (each level has a boss fight at the end of the level), which when combined, delivers about an hour of gameplay experience. The game also features a leaderboard where you can compare your scores against other John Wick wanna-be.
