On February 10th, super-assassin John Wick returns to the silver screen in America with John Wick: Chapter 2. But, if you can't wait three days to get your Wick fix, don't fret - Starbreeze Studios has you covered. Their HTC Vive-only FPS John Wick Chronicles will be releasing just a day before, giving you a chance to step into the shoes of everyone's favorite puppy avenger.

First announced back in October of 2016John Wick Chronicles follows the man himself engaged in firefights in the film's assassin safe haven that is the Continental Hotel. Last I checked, the staff of the Continental Hotel had a fairly strict policy as far as not conducting business was concerned, but judging by the fact that the game's nothing but shooting, it's clear that John's enemies aren't sticklers for the rules.

Along with the game, pre-orders come packed with a copy of the Starbreeze-published Payday 2, as well as a John Wick weapons pack for the same game. There's also a digital deluxe edition available for ten dollars extra that comes with a digital copy of the original John Wick. Between John Wick Chronicles, John Wick Chapter 2, and Starbreeze's now-expired John Wick-themed humble bundle, it's safe to say that we'll be seeing more from the man known as Baba Yaga in the future.

John Wick Chronicles releases on February 9th, 2017 for 19.99  on the HTC Vive.

Quick Take

Literally, the only time I've been tempted to buy a VR headset in the past six months was when I learned there was a John Wick FPS coming out for it. While I still don't have the dough (or the space) for the gadget, I can assure you that if I did, my very first purchase would be this. Even if it's bad. I need that Wick in my life.
