Epic Games has released a new update for their popular battle royale game, Fortnite in association with the upcoming John Wick 3 movie. With the Fortnite v9.01 update, players will be greeted by a new limited-time mode called Wick’s Bounty, in The one who will be able to play the game as John Wick.
The goal of this new Wounty Bounty mode is for players to kill baddies and earn their rewards, similar to how it happens in the movie franchise. Players will start the game with a limited number of gold coins, of which they can collect more by killing other players. The first team to reach the gold coin threshold is the one to win the game and be awarded the winner’s trophy.
The company has also made a John Wick game available in the in-game store for players to purchase. The set will include a John Wick costume, a sled pickaxe, a bag full of weapons, and other items that can help during an assassination mission.
During a Wick’s Bounty match, players will gain three lives. At the beginning of a match each player will be able to move under the radar, however after they start killing enemies and collecting gold coins their location on the map will gradually start to show. The top three players will always have their location visible on the map at all times.
Players can also complete weekly challenges to earn rewards like Gold Tokens, One Shot Glider, Boogeyman Wrap, and more.
In related news, a new neo-noir game strategy based on the film, called John Wick Hex is currently available for pre-order on the Epic Games store. The game is priced at $ 7.19 (roughly Rs 500) and is compatible with Windows, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One.
