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.
