Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment are really pushing the upcoming Quantum Break video game with all of their might. Since its announcement, there has come news of a limited edition console bundle, a PC version of the game with cross-buy, the inclusion of both Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and a tie-in novel. The latest bit of advertising consists of an  official trailer for the game.

Quantum Break is set for release internationally on 5 April.

Father of the shooter series Gears of War, Jeff Bleszinski called out actress Olivia Munn on Twitter, which sparked much outcry on Twitter.

According to the former director of Epic Games, Munn has been rude to G4 members on set, stealing wardrobe outfits, and had her own ice cream truck at San Diego Comic Con. This may be a fight to watch.

And finally, Daybreak Game Company have discontinued development of EverQuest Next, the next installment in the MMORPG series. According to the company’s president, Russel Shanks, the game just wasn’t fun.

“We know you have high standards when it comes to Norrath and we do too. In final review, we had to face the fact that EverQuest Next would not meet the expectations we – and all of you – have for the worlds of Norrath,” says Shanks.

The EverQuest series has been going since 2003.
