Quantum Break closing in on its launch date

A new trailer dropped today for Quantum Break, the latest game from Max Payne and Alan Wake developers Remedy. With the team’s history on taking their cinematic style of action and storytelling further with each game there’s high hopes for what we are going to see in their latest and greatest.

Not only do all copies of the Xbox One game include codes for Alan Wake, it’s DLC and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (brilliant games now backwards compatible) but if you pre-order on the Xbox Store before the release date Microsoft will throw in the Windows Store version for free. That’s a nice little bonus as that version supports game cross saving with Xbox One and screen resolutions of up to 4K.

Some Xbox fans have been critical of it coming to PC and ruining any thoughts of exclusivity but I think it was inevitable. Alan Wake did great business when it arrived on Steam after the Xbox 360 version so there’s a solid fanbase for Remedy’s work and it would be crazy not to try capitalize on it.

And though this time around the PC version is helping to also push a new app store, that it launches at the same time as Xbox One version could help give a potential new franchise a massive kick-start.

Quantum Break arrives on Xbox One and Windows 10 April 5th.

  1. Wow that was a very impressive trailer. I might have to pre-order this soon. I loved the cover of Nirvana’s song too.

    I really think if this is received well it will be a turning point for the Xbox One. Finally this console is starting to come into its own. No longer do you see the resolution debates that have been raging for years. All of the newly released (and soon to be released) triple AAA titles are the same resolution (1080p) on both platforms. Fallout 4, The Division and DOOM are three such titles that run the same resolution across PS4 and Xbox One.

  2. I’m not getting Quantom Break right now. I can’t stand the new app store that Microsoft has right now. It’s buggy and no game that’s on works right. I’m going to wait and see if Quantom Break ever goes to Steam. I really want this game, but I’m throwing my money at a buggy program to play it.

    • This will be the first “big” PC game I’d own from the Windows Store so will definitely be curious to see how it turns out. MS seem committed to try and fix existing issues but we’ll see soon enough what comes of it.

  3. The only reason I’ll have this game on Windows is because if I pre-order the digital Xbox One version I get it free. I agree – Steam is far too good a platform and I don’t tend to buy any PC games from any other source.
