Xbox One-Exclusive Quantum Break Will "Leave You Speechless"

Remedy hypes its upcoming Gamescom demo for the game.

The Gamescom demo for Quantum Break, the 2015 Xbox One-exclusive from Alan Wake and Max Payne creator Remedy Entertainment, is going to blow your mind, according to its developer.

Writing on Twitter, Remedy said, the "Quantum Break demo will make you speechless."

Microsoft announced back in May that it will show off Quantum Break's signature "time-amplified" gameplay for the first time at Gamescom, which begins next week. Microsoft's Gamescom briefing is scheduled for Tuesday, August 12, and unlike in the past, this year's event will be streamed for the world to see.

Quantum Break is not just a video game, as it's also going to be paired with a live-action show. The game tells the story of the heroes while the show clues us in on the villains. The Quantum Break show was unaffected by Xbox Entertainment Studios' recent closure.

The game follows Jack Joyce, a man on a mission to prevent the end of time, fighting against the nefarious corporation Monarch Solutions. The actions you take will impact how the story unfolds not only in Quantum Break the game, but also the show.

Remedy Entertainment is also working on an iOS game called Agents of Storm.

they probably do a remake of Alan Wake one game of year edition lol like all the other companies seem to be doing.  Then a couple of years later hopefully we get allan wake 2.

Oh this game is gonna be amazing...it's Remedy, they don't make bad games.  Alan Wake II after Quantum Break would be the perfect scenario.

I'm looking foward to this, too bad i don't own an xbox One. Maybe a future release for PC? Well, one can dream, right?

I really don't mean to start any fanboi flame war nor do I want to flip off anyone that is very excited for this game but this particular pic is from the trailer which was shown in the XONE reveal and according to Remedy's very own words were running in "real-time" indicating that these are the visuals you should expect when the game is on your system.I completely disagree....

I'm sorry but looking at the XONE's performance with less than demanding games,I would say be prepared for a weighty visual downgrade.Again not trying to cause a war but a visual downgrade for this game is inevitable.
Its just too good for the XONE to achieve this level of fidelity at this stage.

I've got an Xbox One and I FREAKING LOVE IT....however...I want to seeee this game.  I mean...look at that ladies face.. come on..Really? It looks THAT GOOD!? Like I say, I wanna see it in action.  I don't care if it's running in 480p.  If it looks like THAT with decent frame rates...I'll F-ing Take It!!

I'm very interested in this game and really loved Alan Wake last gen. Remedy does good work. I hope this comes to the PC though since I'm not going to be getting an Xbox this gen

So when the game is out, it will make loads of Xbox One players speechless, leaving them unable to control their system via Kinect, which then means no TV, no Netflix, no anything because it's the entertainment and information hub of your home.

I don't have X1 .. So I'll be speechless when they release it for PC ... Oh can't wait :p

This was the main reason I bought a X1. This alone.

@vickissv2 they delay games because they are 100% committed on quality like rockstar is. They both get their games pushed all the time and people complain but when they get their hands on it there is little to complain about.

@Navardo95 that is clearly flaming the fire, ryse looked amazing running on x1 and that was a launch title.  remember x1 isnt the only console that struggles with performance, ps4 does as well

@Navardo95  man what you're talking about really is a good running pc.  Remedy doesn't own Quantum Break IP like Alan Wake, but Microsoft will probably get them to release it on PC.  It's console games 1080p 30fps probably will be the mark for QB.  Besides it won't be downgrading from anything because it's being made for Xbox One exclusively.  Day 1 purchase "fo sho".  Just a rebuttal man, no flaming involved.

@123whatever Defiance as a show has been fantastic. Greatly enjoyed and well made. The MMO was lack luster, though that comes more from a lack of interest in MMO's.

@hystavito The Xbox One comes with a controller to, and you can use your phone, but nice try.

@zoopsat That's a big gamble. I'm really interested in this game too, it's the only game on the X1 I want to play, but that's not enough reason for me to buy a console

@diggyphelps @everson_rm Considering almost every other Xbone exclusive has been announced for PC, you can bet this will as well, and past Remedy games have almost come out on PC at some point also adds to it as well.

@Poltergeist13 @Navardo95 Do you have proof beyond a doubt they don't own the IP? Microsoft is Publishing the game but that doesn't mean they own the IP as for the TV show they could just have Remedy's permission to do it that way.

@ringringabel   they just announced Ryse Sone of Rome for the PC,

and they did it before when they released Alan Wake.

So just wait for one year or more :)

@ringringabel if it comes to pc it will probably 1 year after x1 release like most of the previous x1 exclusive that are coming now on pc.

@Zerabp @brockelley @123whatever lol there are people that argue that even after Destiny's latest beta, there was still enough time to make vast changes to the game.. to them I say, get real.


To you I say the same thing.

Zerabp

@brockelley @Zerabp @123whatever What are you getting on about? Destiny has been in development almost as long as Defiance meaning Defiance didn't pave the way for it at all. I'm not putting the game or Destiny down, and only the most delusional of minds could have taken it that way.


If you like defiance fine just don't try to attribute a successful games success to a provably unsuccessful game. Just to be clear saying a game is unsuccessful is not an insult. I played Aion until about 6 months after it went free to play. The game was very unsuccessful here in the US but I loved every minute of it (FTP did ruin it eventually).

@phbz @Zerabp @brockelley @123whatever No but the traveler is shown over the earth in a picture with the tagline "Destiny Awaits" in OTSD which Bungie confirmed at the time was a project they were working on.
