Quantum Break Features Television Episodes That Shift Based On Player Choice

Posted on Wednesday, November 27 @ 06:02:56 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Remedy Entertainment's upcoming Xbox One-exclusive game Quantum Break incorporates television episodes within the game proper. Interestingly enough, these episodes are integrated in such a way that they reflect player choice.

Speaking to Polygon, Remedy’s Sam Lake explained:

Acts of the game are interwoven with episodes of the show. What we have as connecting tissue are these moments of choice related to the fiction of time powers.

Our bad guy in the game has the most powerful time powers of all, and he has this junction ability where he’s able to see glimpses of different futures, different timelines. It’s almost like a dynamic player-created cliffhanger at the end of each act.

You get to explore these glimpses and visions of two different futures, and you make a choice as to which comes to be. And from that we shift into an episode of the show. From the first scene you’ll get alternate content depending on the choice you’ve made.

The idea sounds a little bit out there, but you've got to applaud Remedy for its ambition and willingness to try something completely new. Are you excited for this upcoming Xbox One game? Are you still hoping we get an Alan Wake 2? Let us know in the comments.
