The lights are on
Remedy’s creative director, Sam Lake, took the stage today during Microsoft’s press conference in Los Angeles, California to share more on Quantum Break. The developer is aiming to “blur the lines between gaming and television” with its Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break. Choices players make in the game affect what they see in the companion television show. “ The story focuses on a time-bending science experiment gone wrong. Lake showed off a section of the game involving a woman caught in the midst of an explosion frozen in time.
The protagonist, Jack, is working to correct a failed science experiment to control the flow of time, which ended up causing it to stutter and freeze.
We see a woman being thrown through the air in slow motion. The camera pans around the stalled explosion and a ribbon of blood extends from her hand. Jack wades through the paused glass and debris, clearing shards away from the victim. He pulls her from the midst of the explosion as she screams. They talk about trying to find a way to stop this as a piece of the debris begins to stutter. Apparently, she knows something that could help solve this problem. “It’s collapsing”, the woman yells. The two begin running as the explosion reignites and knocks them to the ground. A big chunk of flaming metal crashes towards them as the presentation ends.
The visuals look slick, but we're eager to learn more about how the gameplay and TV show play off each other. Check out more images from the game here.

Another TV Show/ Game crossover. That ought to be interesting.
Love it. Impressive
For a moment I thought it was a re-named "Chrono Break" when I saw the title..
Not sure what to expect from this game...still haven't seen gameplay.
I want to hear more about the game
I hope this goes well!
I have no idea what this game is about. There were completely different characters than the previous trailer.
I just hope this gets them enough funds to make the second season of Alan Wake, because honestly this looks far less compelling so far, with no sign of gameplay in sight.
sounds like it's going to be a collection of QTEs.
I loved how intense that gameplay was! /sarcasm. Seriously, what happened? The whole video was basically just a cutscene. Why do they feel the need to cut out the game part of the video game every 5 seconds?
Looks pretty good, trailer please!
