You Can Play as ‘John Wick’ in the Payday 2 Video Game, Puppy Not Included
Good news for video game players, bad news for all the bad dudes you're going to take down: you'll be able to play as Keanu Reeves' character from 'John Wick' in the Payday 2 video game, thanks to a free download update available to players courtesy of Lionsgate. Sorry, he doesn't come with that really cute puppy, though.
Variety reports that Lionsgate has partnered with 505 Games to make Reeves' John Wick character available as a playable character in the Payday 2 video game, which has players participating in heist missions around Washington D.C. Starting tomorrow, two days before the film's release, players will be able to access the free downloadable character, and play as Reeves' super cool hitman character.
Who doesn't want to be John Wick? And now you can, kind of, from the comfort of your favorite stretchy pants and without even breaking a sweat to kick some butt. Curious about Payday 2 and want to get in on this whole "pretending to be the most awesome action character of the year" thing? Purchase your 'John Wick' ticket on Fandango, and you'll get a free download of Payday 2 on Steam.
Check out a trailer for Payday 2 below, and be sure to go see 'John Wick' when it hits theaters on October 24. If you don't, the puppies will be sad. John Wick hates when puppies are sad.
