Remedy Entertainment showed off a mind-warping glimpse into their next-game during today's Xbox event and it looks utterly stunning.
Quantum Break appears to move the TV-centric style that Remedy used for Alan Wake out of psychological horror and into the realm of sci-fi. I'm willing to bet money that it's going to be released episodically, too. Not a lot of money. But some.
Update: Here's the official description of the game from a press release. The release also contained this line: "Format: Exclusive to Blu-ray for the Xbox One video game and entertainment system." That sure sounds it won't be downloadable episodes like I previously speculated. Guess I owe somebody some money.
Developed exclusively for Xbox One, Quantum Break blurs the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience. From Remedy Entertainment, the critically-acclaimed creators of Alan Wake and Max Payne comes a revolutionary entertainment experience that weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television, creating a world where each has a direct impact on the other.
In Quantum Break, our desperate hero fights a highly personal battle to save the future before time literally runs out. As time breaks down, impossible, split second moments of destruction turn into epic stages of time powered action. The actions you take, and the choices you make, shape your experience as the narrative unfolds. As you play, a personalized ‘director’s cut’ of the show is created just for you, based on the decisions you make during the game.
Quantum Break will lead the new generation of interactive entertainment, as the show and game deliver a holistic entertainment experience made possible only on Xbox One.
