Quantum Break


 

If you acquired a copy of Quantum Break by less than honest means, your Jack Joyce may look a bit more Blackbeard than he would in a legit copy of the game.

Gamers who pirate Remedy Entertainment’s newest title will find that a pirate’s eyepatch has been placed over the protagonist’s eye, complete with skull and crossbones. This is the second time that Remedy Entertainment has taken a humorous stance on game piracy, with this tactic being used in 2010’s Alan Wake as well.

Some players, however, are finding their Shawn Ashmore “patched,” despite buying the game. To remedy this (pun successfully delivered), make sure that you’ve logged into your Microsoft account, as the DRM may trigger if you haven’t.

If you’re on the fence on picking up the time-warping title, check out EGM’s review.
