Remedy Entertainment has confirmed the Quantum Break release date will occur sometime in 2015.
The game was first revealed back at the Xbox One launch in May 2013 and is quite unusual. It blends an action game with an episodic TV thriller.
“The game is about heroes and the show is about villains,” said Sam Lake, Remedy’s Creative Director. “In the game you play Jack Joyce, in a desperate fight to stop the fracture that threatens to cause the end of time. In the show, in the style of an edgy modern TV series, you follow the schemes and power plays inside Monarch, the corporation that is Jack’s main enemy.”
The game portion is a third-person, story-driven cover shooter that features time-manipulation mechanics.
Up to date, we’ve not seen much of these mechanics in action, but apparently this is about to change.
“I’m very excited to tell you that we will be presenting Quantum Break’s time amplified action gameplay for the first time ever in August at Gamescom.”
The trailer below gives us a sneak peek at the time manipulation gameplay, but it looks like we’ll have to wait until August to get a proper look at the mechanics and how it works in game.
Microsoft earlier stated that your actions in the game portion will directly affect the TV sections, attempting to provide a personalised version for each gamer.
The show will even go as far as to provide insights that influence how the game is played too.
“Together, they form an intertwining narrative where the actions you take directly impact how the story across both the game and the show unfolds”, reads the game’s official blurb.
