Quantum Break is an amazing upcoming game, and we’re looking forward to welcoming it on the Windows Store, as well as one the Xbox One. The game is essential as it’s part of Microsoft’s move to improve the Windows Store and make it a location for triple A games, as well.
As you probably know, Remedy Entertainment is going to launch action game Quantum Break simultaneously on Xbox One and Windows 10 next month. Remedy’s Communications Director Thomas Puha, said the following about the release on PC:
“Coming to Windows 10 means we can service our PC fans. We started on the PC. This is our 21st year of making games, so we have a loyal fan-base there. We’re glad to be able to bring it to Windows 10, and hopefully more people will get a chance to play. We put a lot of effort into both versions.”
He then talked about the benefits of having Windows 10:
“So, because we are running Windows 10, you have the benefits of Xbox Live. You have your single profile; you have your Gamerscore; you have Game DVR. What’s really useful, though, is shared saves. So, say you start playing on the Xbox One and you get to Act 2 – you can take a break and then actually continue playing on Windows 10.”
And while the Xbox One is itself a gaming machine, obviously, there are many out there who have a Windows 10 gaming rig, as well. Puha ha this to say for them:
“The core gameplay experience is the same, but for those who’ve invested in a high-end PC, we offer things like 4K resolution, mouse and keyboard support, and running the game at 60 frames per second. You can also tweak some of the visual effects, such as the lighting and shadow quality – things that PC gamers expect.”
And the great news is that anyone who pre-orders the Xbox One digital version through the Xbox Store, purchases an Xbox One digital token at participating retailers, or pre-orders an Xbox One Special Edition Quantum Break bundle, will receive the Windows 10 version of the game for free.
You should be aware though, that Quantum Break Xbox One codes purchased at retail and inside bundles must be redeemed on the console or at Xbox.com by April 4, 2016. Windows 10 game redemption code will be sent via Xbox system message around the week of April 5, 2016.
