​The First Real Look at Quantum Break

Finally, a nice meaty preview of the next game from the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake.

Remedy creative director Sam Lake introduced a live gameplay demo for Quantum Break from Gamescom this morning, which showed hero Jack Joyce using his special powers in combat. After being caught in the blast of a time-travel experiment gone wrong, Jack can rush through time for super-speed movement and freeze time in specific areas to lock enemies in place and deal more damage with gunfire.

The demo also showed a time stutter—one of the frozen sequences that Jack will have to wend his way through, fighting enemies that will use technology that lets them move through the moment.
