GAX (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

Mi­crosoft Stu­dios and Rem­edy En­ter­tain­ment have re­cently con­firmed that the PC ver­sion of Quan­tum Break will be launch­ing along­side its Xbox One coun­ter­part on April 5, 2016.

Gamers, it’s the mo­ment you’ve been wait­ing for: Mi­crosoft Stu­dios and Rem­edy En­ter­tain­ment have re­cently con­firmed that the PC ver­sion of Quan­tum Break will be launch­ing along­side its Xbox One coun­ter­part on April 5, 2016.

What’s par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing, though, is that if you’ve pre-or­dered the Xbox One ver­sion of the game be­fore April 4, 2016, you’ll be en­ti­tled to re­ceive the PC ver­sion for ab­so­lutely free. But be­fore you start jump­ing for joy, you’ll have to first make sure that the gam­ing rig of yours com­plies with the min­i­mum hard­ware spec­i­fi­ca­tions of Quan­tum Break, which in­cludes a 2.7GHz In­tel Core i5-4460 or an AMD FX-6300 pro­ces­sor, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or an AMD Radeon R7 260X GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 55GB of stor­age space. You’ll also need to en­sure that your PC is run­ning on Win­dows 10.

Don’t be too de­jected if your PC isn’t up to snuff, as you will re­ceive a com­pli­men­tary dig­i­tal copy of Alan Wake for the Xbox 360 – along with its two ac­com­pa­ny­ing DLCs, The Sig­nal, and The Writer – when you pur­chase a copy of Quan­tum Break.

Still not sat­is­fied? You’ll re­ceive an ad­di­tional game – Alan Wake’s Amer­i­can Night­mare for the Xbox 360 – should you de­cide to pre-or­der Quan­tum Break, which means you’ll es­sen­tially be get­ting three games for the price of one. Yes, both the com­pli­men­tary games are back­wards com­pat­i­ble with the Xbox One.

But who are we kid­ding? What you re­ally should be vy­ing for is the Xbox One Spe­cial Edi­tion Quan­tum Break Bun­dle, which comes with a 500GB Cir­rus White Xbox One con­sole, a match­ing wire­less con­troller, as well as a dig­i­tal copy of both Quan­tum Break and Alan Wake – the lat­ter of which com­plete with its two afore­men­tioned DLCs. The bun­dle will be go­ing for US$349 (ap­prox. RM1,441) when it be­comes avail­able in “most re­gions world­wide” on March 29.
