After several untimely delays, we've finally had a proper look at Remedy's upcoming Quantum Break, and it was worth the wait.

During Microsoft's press briefing today gamers were treated to an extended look at gameplay footage of the time and dimension-breaking adventure, as well as a concrete release date of April 5, 2016.



Good thing, too, because with the slate of games coming out the rest of this year and next, we're going to need some time to digest everything else that's been thrown at us.

Gamescom's debut gameplay trailer showed off several details about the game, namely how time distortions are going to affect players in-game as well as the storyline behind everything. Actor Shawn Ashmore takes up the role of Jack Joyce, who's trying to reverse the negative effects of a time travel experiment that's gone awry, orchestrated by Littlefinger himself. We know, wrong show, but that caught your attention, didn't it? Aidan Gillen is the villain in the story here, it looks like. It's a little convoluted, but it's breathtaking to look at, and will likely make for an exciting narrative component.



Looking over the gameplay bits and pieces of the trailer beyond the narrative, it called forth games like Dark Sector and Prototype, with interesting visual effects and a realistic aesthetic. The motion capture is especially impressive.

It's big news for the game to finally have been given a release date, especially since it's been a thing as long as we've known about the Xbox One. It was originally announced back in May 2013 when the Xbox One was announced as well, and many were left to assume it could have gone the way of vaporware, especially among Remedy's other titles releasing left and right, like Alan Wake and Max Payne.

What could be the most interesting about the entire thing is that there's a live-action component of the game that's exclusive to the Xbox that viewers can watch alongside the show. It's a unique experience that I hope takes off, especially since it's finally got a concrete date for everyone to look forward to. We'll be back with more details as soon as they're released.
