Quantum Break: Next Game From Remedy Shown At Xbox One Event

Quantum Break, the next game from Remedy Entertainment was revealed at Microsoft’s Xbox One event.

Remedy Entertainment is best known as the team behind the Max Payne franchise and Alan Wake. Remedy will develop the game while Microsoft Studios will help produce it. As one of the first announced games for Xbox One, Quantum Break will also be an exclusive for Microsoft’s next generation console – one of fifteen to come out within the console’s first year.

Quantum Break was introduced as a “revolutionary entertainment experience that weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television.” Both the game and the television experiences will have a direct influence on each other, with the game impacting the show and the show impacting the game.

A brief teaser trailer was then shown for Quantum Break which blended real life actors with CGI and what looked like potential gameplay. The trailer opened with a live action section of a family leaving on some kind of trip. A young girl asks someone who might be her mother, “Do you think it’s safe where we’re going?” The woman then asks the girl, “What is it that makes you so different?” to which the girl replies, “Are you sure you want to know?” and then touches the woman’s head. Suddenly the trailer switches to what looks like a CGI scene of a ship crashing into a bridge. As the ship plows into the bridge it leaves a path of twisted metal and cars crashing into the water below.

Then the words “Time is the fire in which we burn” appear on screen with a brief flash of the little girl staring out the window of a car. The trailer then switches to what looks like a combination of CGI and possible in-engine gameplay. A man runs towards a flaming pile of debris as a guard with a bulletproof vest is shot in slow motion. This section is compromised of quick cuts and little can be derived from it.

Microsoft did not reveal any actual gameplay at the Xbox One event for Quantum Break, nor was much other information given about the game. More details are expected to be given at E3 where Microsoft has said they will focus more on games.
