'Quantum Break' (ALL) Launch Event At Microsoft Stores

by Rainier on March 25, 2016 @ 9:12 a.m. PDT

Quantum Break blurs the line between gaming and TV by integrating drama and gameplay into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience.

Quantum Break weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television, creating a world where each has a direct impact on the other.

In Quantum Break, our desperate hero fights a highly personal battle to save the future before time literally runs out. As time breaks down, impossible, split second moments of destruction turn into epic stages of time powered action. The actions you take, and the choices you make, shape your experience as the narrative unfolds.

Your in-game choices will affect the outcome of the fast-paced fusion between game and show, illustrating one story perceived in many ways for a completely unique entertainment experience. Play the game to understand the heroes... and watch the in-game show to discern the villains. You’ll navigate epic scenes of destruction, experience time-amplified gameplay, and marvel at a top-quality show that is directly impacted by what you do.

Master time to survive the present… and save the future.

Quantum Break will be available for $59.99, £49.99, €69.99.
