Quantum Break was first shown at the Xbox One reveal event on May 21st and we have some new information on the game. It’s said to be the “ultimate Remedy experience”, and will borrow the best elements from Alan Wake and Max Payne games.
You guessed it right, it will feature interactive storytelling from Alan Wake and cinematic combat and shooting mechanics from Max Payne.
It is also exclusive to Xbox One, and Remedy have mentioned that it would have been impossible to create a game like this without Microsoft’s help.
“This is clearly a strategic move for them as well as us. This is something – we have crazy ideas – but we need to fall back and let the full force of a company like Microsoft see it through,” Matias Myllyrinne, CEO of Remedy, told GI International in an interview.
“There’s no way on God’s green Earth that we would take on a venture like this on our own. We might have the appetite but there’s no way we could.
“For us, our interests are nicely aligned. We serve a strategic purpose for them in delivering unique content for their platform with a unique twist. And for us that allows us follow the creative passion that the team needs to fulfil through a project like this.”
Remedy also revealed some in-engine gameplay footage at E3.
