Quantum Break pirates are in for a treat

PC players who pirate Quantum Break will be forced to a wear a fitting eyepatch as they plan through the game.

Remedy Entertainment has once again branded pirates with an awesome looking eyepatch.


Also seen in its last game, Alan Wake, the eyepatch is found on protagonist Jack Joyce if you’re discovered playing a naughty copy of the game.

The eyepatch was uncovered by Reddit user disastorm, who found the easter egg when logging out of the Windows Store before launching the game.

It seems disconnecting from Microsoft’s service is enough in itself to trigger the pirate surprise.

Personally, we think the eyepatch looks kinda cool. I mean, imagine playing as a time-travelling pirate.

Quantum Break is out now for Xbox One and PC.
