is a time travel mystery developed by Remedy Entertainment exclusively for the Xbox One. Quantum Break combines a live action television show with a high octane action 3rd person shooter.
Quantum Break is an upcoming third-person action video game to be released on the Xbox One. Developed by Finnish game developer Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios, the game will feature live-action videos blended with regular gameplay. The game was revealed with a teaser trailer during the Xbox One reveal event on 21 May 2013. A Quantum Breaktelevision series is also in production, with Remedy stating that "how you play the game impacts the show, and the show informs how you play the game."
The game is played from a cover-based third-person perspective, with time manipulation powers.
Both Jack Joyce and Beth Wilder will be playable character in the game each with their own time manipulation powers. Remedy's creative director Sami Järvi (Sam Lake) stated that this will be a third person action shooter, in line with Remedy's past AAA game like Max Payne and Alan Wake. Though the game will be heavily influenced by Max Payne's gun play and not Alan Wake's. Unlike their past game, Quantum Break will feature a dynamic cover system and various time manipulation powers.
Jack Joyce will be able to stop for a small time time and sprint away from danger or get up close and melee attack enemies.
Quantum Break is set in the fictional North Eastern U.S. Riverport University where a time travel experiment has gone wrong, giving the three main characters, Jack Joyce, Beth Wilder, and Paul Serene the ability to manipulate time. Paul Serene, for example, can see into the future to decide which choices to make in the present.
While developing the game, developers Remedy Entertainment consulted a scientist lecturer who had worked at CERN who taught them how to write the plot in such a way that it adhered to current theoretical physics.
