Seen in the video are two of the main villains, Paul Serene (Aidan Gillen) and Hatch (Lance Reddick), who work for the evil Monarch Solutions. We see Serene speaking with main character Jack Joyce (X-Men's Shawn Ashmore), telling him about how "time is just one closed loop."

Gillen and Reddick have worked together before, as they both appeared in HBO's The Wire. The Quantum Break show also features Lost and Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan.

As announced previously, Quantum Break's TV show component mainly tells the story of the villains, while the game chronicles the journey of the game's heroes. There are four TV episodes, each of which comes in at around 22 minutes, meaning the whole thing is about the length of a Disney movie.

You can skip them to get back to the game, but developer Remedy hopes you won't.

Quantum Break launches for Xbox One and PC on April 5. In other recent news, Remedy has announced the game's PC graphics settings, while the developer has responded to reports about the game's resolution.
