  • Quantum Break review: a fractured experiment in storytelling

    Billed as the next blockbuster title on Xbox One, Quantum Break comes from the developers of Alan Wake and Max Payne. It certainly has all of the makings of not only a great game, but a new and brilliant IP. Quantum Break experiments with the video gaming formula, has guns, time-travel, and well-known actors in key roles. Even with all of this, why do I find it so hard to recommend the game to anyone in particular? As with many a science-fiction story, the game starts with an experiment gone awry. Our hero Jack Joyce is caught up in a...

  • Quantum Break on Xbox One could set you back 121GB

    Upcoming video game Quantum Break will consist of two parts: the game and a live-action episode pack. It has already been stated that the game files will be 45.72GB on Xbox One, but not the episode pack's size. Spotted on NeoGaf this morning and tweeted by NESbot, downloading the episode pack separately will set players back 75GB worth of data.

  • Quantum Break first impressions: a game, a decision, and a TV show

    Last night, I finally got some hands-on time with Remedy Entertainment's upcoming title Quantum Break. It's made by the same crew that created the Alan Wake titles, and it shows. Of course, there are some things that I cannot talk about just yet, but what I can say is that Quantum Break -- so far -- is a fun title. Bearing in mind my playtime consisted of around an hour or so. After some intro bits, the protagonist Jack Joyce (Shawn Ashmore) and brother William Joyce (Dominic Monaghan) escape from a lab and have to fight their way through the secret armed...

  • Quantum Break is getting its own novel: read an excerpt here

    Besides the video game and TV series-like videos, the upcoming Quantum Break video game will also have a tie-in novel. The book is written by Remedy Entertainment's Cam Rogers. Entitled Quantum Break: Zero State, the novel will follow the events of the game, and with most tie-ins, should give a different perspective on events. The novel introduces protagonist Jack Joyce and Paul Serene as they're caught in a life or death situation while recounting events from the previous evening. It also introduces two new characters, Zed and Aberfoyle. Here's a sample snippet: “Stop checking behind us. It makes us look nervous.” Jack tried for a reassuring smile. “I trust...

  • Quantum Break live action scenes won’t be included on the game disc

    In an interview with Gameinformer, Quantum Break lead designer Greg Louden stated the game's live action episodes planned alongside the game won't be included with the title. The video sequences adapt to player choices, which required developer Remedy Entertainment to film multiple versions of the same video. Due to this product design, the videos would need to either be streamed or downloaded, thus the gamer will require an internet connection. "I can’t give you an exact size, but it is big, so we wanted to create this high-quality game experience and use all the disc space to maximize the visual effects qualities of...

  • Quantum Break: is Windows 10 and Xbox One cross-play a good idea?

    Thanks to a huge recent announcement by Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment, the world's getting the previously believed Xbox One exclusive title -- Quantum Break -- on Windows 10 too. This didn't go down well with the gaming community. Some believe this mark's the death of the Xbox One as a console. Others believe, like Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer, that it's good for gamers. Others, well, others are just mad. But how revolutionary, detrimental or absolutely brilliant is this move by Microsoft? For fun, and to study the gaming community's concerns more intricately, we'll have a look at some of the best comments...
