Quantum Break was originally announced during the Xbox One reveal event in May of 2013. It is being developed by Remedy Entertainment, the same studio behind the first two Max Payne games and Alan Wake. The game’s protagonist, Jack Joyce, wields time manipulation powers, making everything freeze except himself. The rest of the gameplay, from what we’ve seen so far, seems typical for third person action adventure game, and includes 3D puzzles. The game will also feature digital TV episodes in between gameplay segments that intertwine with the game depending on the player’s choices.
Quantum Break is expected to release on April 5, 2016, exclusively for Xbox One. The Game Awards will air live on Thursday at 9 p.m. EST this Thursday.
