QUANTUM BREAK [ XBO]
Developer: Remedy Entertainment Publisher: Microsoft Studios Out: Q2
Although we’re always wary of game/ TV crossovers, we’ve got to admit we’re more than a little intrigued by Remedy Entertainment’s forthcoming Xbox One exclusive, Quantum Break. Not only does it look absolutely gorgeous, but it could potentially be a watershed moment in the way games and TV mix, blurring the lines between the two mediums in a way that none before have managed. As one of the Xbox One’s flagship exclusives, there’s a lot of weight of expectation on Quantum Break, but given the studio’s pedigree and a back catalogue that includes the underrated Alan Wake, we remain confident that it can live up to the pre- release hype when it finally launches. With a storyline that toys with our understanding of time as an entity and plenty of sci- fi twists and turns, there’s a lot to get excited about here - and while the scope of the TV show remains largely unknown, there’s every possibility that it could add a lot to the experience.
