Quantum Break


 

As promised, Remedy Entertainment debuted the first gameplay footage from its upcoming third-person time manipulation shooter Quantum Break.

Creative Director Sam Lake took to the stage during Microsoft’s Gamescom press conference to introduce the footage that shows Jack Joyce, the game’s main protagonist, taking on a number of guards on the docks before heading up to a bridge where civilians are attempting to break through a police checkpoint.

The demo shows off a number of Jack’s abilities, such as the power to freeze time in pockets, enabling him to fire a ton of bullets into it before unfreezing time and letting them fly. Joyce can also slow down time for brief periods allowing him to dash to new cover spots undetected. It appears as if time manipulation will be limited by a meter in the bottom right of the HUD that recharges over time.

In the video, we are also introduced to time stutters, events that have become frozen as time collapses, these events can loop and crash into one another. Joyce has no control of these stutters, and so must simply navigate their dangers and avoid getting killed. In the demo we are shown a stutter that involves a lorry hurtling over a bridge right at Jack before freezing at the last second, and a standoff between civilians and the authorities on a bridge that has seen one civilian shot and killed.

It all ends with a final showdown between Jack and two members of the Monarch corporation that have the power to move around inside stutters also. This results in a sort of mini boss battle with bullets being fired, time being manipulated, and cars being flung.

Quantum Break is in development for Xbox One, but is still without a release date.
