Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming Xbox One exclusive third-person shooter, Quantum Break, will be making its way to Xbox users in 2015, creative director Sam Lake announced in a video today.
In Quantum Break, players will be playing as the main character Jack Joyce and it will be set in a fictional Rivenport University, located in the Northeastern US. The game features time manipulation powers with one of the features is being able to rush forward while the whole world is frozen, but that was due to a time-based science experiment that had gone horribly wrong. Players will be able to play as Jack Joyce and Beth Wilder, who are the ones to fight against the corporation called Monarch Industries, while also trying to balance and fix the errors in time.
Sam Lake announced in the video that Remedy and Microsoft will be showing the “time-amplified action gameplay” of Quantum Break at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, which happens in August 14-17.
Lake says, while playing Quantum Break, you will not only get the “cinematic action game,” but you will also get “top of the line live-action show.” The game will be split between the two mediums of action and live action, in order experience as a unified creative work. Quantum Break will switch between sequences of gameplay and episodes of television that are half-hour.

“The game is about heroes. The show is about villains,” said Lake. “In the game, you play Jack Joyce in a desperate fight to stop the fracture that threatens to cause the end of time. In the show, in the style of an edgy modern TV series, you follow the schemes and power play inside Monarch, the corporation that’s Jack’s main enemy.”
