Quantum Break still exists, but this new trailer won't tell you much

New, 4 comments

Quantum Break is somehow exactly as confusing and intriguing today as it was when it was first announced in 2013. It's a combination of a game and a TV show, told from the perspective of both the heroes and the villains, and the choices you make in one medium affect what happens in the other. It's got a Hollywood cast that includes Shawn Ashmore of X-Men, Aidan Gillen of Game of Thrones, and Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings. If you need more, the entire premise is summed up in the trailer above — it's a minute-long monologue about the game's backstory, which involves revenge, familial bonds, and the end of time.

That's it. We're not sure what the game looks like outside a cinematic trailer, or how any of its weirder features — including the TV series — work. At least that's hopefully changing soon, since it was finally given a release date this summer: it's coming to Xbox One on April 15th, 2016.
