Gamescom 2015: Quantum Break Gets A Release Date


Today at Gamescom, Microsoft showed off Quantum Break with a new gameplay trailer. The trailer included a look at the characters played by actors Shawn Ashmore (The Following, Xmen: The Last Stand) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones). The gameplay included Shawn Ashmore controlling time in order to take out baddies. The graphics are very impressive and being able to control time looks interesting but the question for me is how long before it gets tiresome? I want to see more and am very curious how it will switch between gameplay and the TV show; which was shown later in the conference showcasing Aidan Gillen’s acting.

Quantum Break is a game mixed with TV show that fans have been eagerly waiting for. Remedy is best known for Alan Wake, a thriller that was exclusive to the Xbox 360 and their experience with that game does show in Quantum Break. As Shawn Ashmore talks to himself and narrates throughout the gameplay, I was immediately reminded of Alan Wake’s storytelling and felt compelled to want to know more.

We finally got a release date for Quantum Break as well! It releases April 5, 2016! Are you excited for Quantum Break? Let us know!
