Quantum Break uses Remedy Entertainment's new Digital Molecular Matter (DMM) Playback System

Pixelux Entertainment announced today that Remedy Entertainment is the first to use the new Digital Molecular Matter (DMM) Playback System for high quality in-game destruction in their upcoming Xbox One Title, "Quantum Break" (Microsoft, Quantum Break, Tag Invalid, Xbox One)

Man this is incredible. Destruction tech used in film and tv shows :)

Wood splinters, steel bends, everything big or small destructs realistically

Mixed with Quantum Break's amazing graphics. I can't wait

DMM is significantly underused by developers which is a real shame. From memory the only game which uses it is Star Wars the Force Unleashed 1 & 2. Google the destruction in these games it is amazing. Also I hope more games will begin to use Euphoria A.I. (used in GTA and SWTFU). People put so much importance on graphics but I personally would prefer realistic destruction and AI.

I remember just watching videos about DMM and Euphoria for Star Wars and just being amazed by both. So many games could benefit from them. So I must agree with you.

^ Yes I did too bro. I remember watching a video of a guy throwing r2d2 at some wood and watching it splinter and stuff.

"DMM is a deformation-based fracture system that simulates the physical properties of any material using finite element analysis. If a structure exists - big or small, dense or thin, floppy or rigid - DMM causes it to react in the same way as dictated by reality. For example, wood doesn't simply break along a predetermined seam every time - rather, it bends and splinters into pieces from the point of impact. The same rules apply to any substance imaginable: rubber bends and snaps back into place. Glass shatters. Steel dents and bends. Plastic deforms. DMM can even simulate plants and organic objects through the adjustment of 14 different material physics settings ranging from toughness to volume preservation."

"DMM has played a key role in shaping Quantum Break, our vision of next-gen entertainment. We have been able to simulate complex scenarios on a scale that hasn't been possible before and then allow players experience them in real time. Can't wait to show the world more of what we're able to do!", said Mikko Uromo, Tech Team Lead at Remedy Entertainment."

Wow sounds great. Can't wait to see this in action.

This is one of my most anticipated games, i really cant wait to see more about it. Remedy is an amazing developer and they are in full force with Quantum Break, cant wait for this!
SlapHappyJesus  +   398d ago
This is my most anticipated console release at the moment. Hoping to see more of the game soon. Not entirely sure what to expect from it at this point.
Pintheshadows  +   398d ago
See, this is next generation.
Ausbo  +   398d ago
"only if its 1080p and 60fps though"

Pintheshadows  +   398d ago
I think we should accept that we have to expect both innovation and 1080p 60fps for next gen games.
Moncole  +   397d ago
They need to new consoles are for games that wont be able to run on their predecessor.
Pintheshadows  +   397d ago
Wow, to the four that disagreed with me. You have low standards. This is a NEW console generation. A console generation after the one that was meant to have 1080p as a standard.

You need to stop acting like children and start encouraging the people who YOU pay $60/£45, to work harder. They should be producing games at that level consistently.

Innovation coupled with technical prowess is surely the goal of a new generation. No, we won't see it straight away, but I fully expect a game further down the line like Quantum Break to provide.
starchild  +   397d ago
What I hate about that attitude is that MOST PS4 games don't live up to it either. They might have the resolution, but they are at 30fps. Or the might be 60fps, but 900p. It is fairly rare for a PS4 game to be both 1080p and have a solid 60fps.

AC4.. nope
KZSF.. nope
Knack.. nope
BF4.. nope
NFSR.. nope
Destiny.. nope
Infamous SS.. nope

Most of the biggest titles on PS4 fail to reach that bar. If people really care a lot about making sure they get 1080p AND 60fps they should build a powerful PC.

They will never consistently reach that standard on consoles. And with fixed hardware I don't even think it is a good target to shoot for. It would be much better to work on framerate consistency at 30fps than have a stuttery framerate that tries to reach 60fps but doesn't reach it much of the time.

Also, trying to force all developers to give you 1080p and 60fps on consoles is only going to limit what the consoles can do in other areas. I say, ask the developers for a polished, stable product that looks nice and let them decide how they will achieve it.

Very excited for this game, what Remedy did with Alan Wake and it's lighting was beautiful and really show cased the power of the 360 and it was a gorgeous game on PC. I have no doubt Quantum Break will be an incredible looking game on the Xbox One, it will push visuals and story-telling to next-gen.
BX81  +   398d ago
I really liked Alan wake, great game IMO.
Imalwaysright  +   398d ago
Alan Wake was good and Max Payne 2 still is one of the best games I ever played. Remedy knows how to make great games

big system seller right there.. no matter how ps4 is better , this game will be awesome to play on x1.
remedy guys are very good.
Salooh  +   397d ago
This is the first time i agree with you. Hope this game comes to pc. Maybe i will get a gaming pc in the future. :)

This puts a smile on my face :)
BLow  +   398d ago
I don't care what side of the fence you are on as this game looks REALLY good. This is next gen people. Now developers are focusing on the smaller details and I love it. Reminds me of what Ready of Dawn are doing with The Order. To X1 owners, this is going to be a gem.
Imalwaysright  +   398d ago
I'm calling it now. This will be X1 must have title.
first1NFANTRY  +   398d ago
i though Ryse was THE must have X1 exclusive? onto the next hype train already are we?
QuantumWake  +   398d ago
Well to be fair, a lot of people (including me) already knew Ryse would turn out to be average seeing as the game was developed by Crytek.

Remedy are proven developers in my opinion. So if the hype train is taking passengers, I'm definitely hopping on it. ;)

Dude you didnt have to say that...you sound like a silly fanboy ..people getting hyped for games is only normal...besides remedy are great devs...and im actually ok with ryse. My friends love the game too.

IcicleTrepan  +   398d ago
right cuz there will only be one must have game for any one system...
theWB27  +   398d ago
That's usually how it happens...once QB passes then it'll be another game...once that game passes then it'll be another game. It would be a crappy console if it only had ONE must have exclusive.
Convas  +   397d ago
Lots of people are reporting to be enjoying Ryse a lot.

So there's that.
Imalwaysright  +   397d ago
@ first1NFANTRY

Well I don't know what makes you think that you know what I like or not but... you thought wrong. Since the 1st moment I saw Ryse gameplay I knew that the game was crap. I could tell right away that the combat was shallow and lacked depth. Also imo Crytek are crap devs and I knew that they wouldn't be able to fix the problems Ryse had after it was lambasted by previews at E3.

As for Quantum Break, it is made by one of my favorite development studios so I'm obviously excited for it. Tell you what, you let me be a gamer and I'll let you be the buthurt fanboy that can't handle some random gamer being excited for a game that isn't going to be released on the piece of plastic that you love. Deal?

if they do it right, this could be the game that makes me buy an xbox one
first1NFANTRY  +   398d ago
All fancy words until proven beneficial to gameplay. hope they deliver as this looks like an interesting game. I'm just sick of shooters!
jay2  +   398d ago
Can't wait for this in a muti plat game to see how much more ps4 handles. Got the res issues so it'll be interesting to see If there less distribution or destroyable objects
Salooh  +   397d ago
Sadly it's not coming to ps4 . If it was coming you would see people all over it. Right now, most of X1 fans are not interested in it . They prefer ryse and zombies over this gorgeous game.
IHassounah  +   397d ago
The real thing is that this game would never be on the PS4 , the IP is owned by Microsoft , also it could come later on on the PC but don't get your hopes up for a PS4 version
JackISbacK  +   397d ago
microsoft has bought thip (announced at e3) so may be like alan wake it may not be landing on pc and it is good news that the people gona se it on only one console their money is not gona waste and i think this ip will create a benchmark for xb1 like halo did with orignal xbox and may be black tusk unannounced ip will gona do same thing ,it is obvios graphics willl go better ,but i'am exited for what moree interesting stories these devs are creating.
Elit3Nick  +   398d ago
DMM? Damn the last time I heard about that tech was for Star wars the force unleashed, glad to see that it didn't disappear like I thought it did.
Kayant  +   398d ago
Man this sounds real interesting... Can't wait to see more footage of this. Iirc the order is doing something similar in terms of realistic damage & physics.

Video of how it works ---> http://m.neogaf.com/showpos...
christocolus  +   398d ago
Wow..thats really nice...
JackISbacK  +   397d ago
it is good but order is not using dmm ,yeah it will be great but they are focusing on detailing with existing tecnologies in games like battlefield distruction made more realistic ,yeah this will be graet but still not dmm,exited for quantum break to see and play their new amazing work like what interesting story and gameplay they are giving to us ,dmm will oviously will bring amzing graphics.
bennissimo  +   398d ago
How does this differ from The Order's physics engine? I read that they detailed the game's materials to behave realistically.
IHassounah  +   397d ago
A better example is Star Wars : The Force Unleashed
DevilishSix  +   397d ago
I hope they release this game soon and not fiddle fart around and take years, so then we can move on to what most fans really want and that is Alan Wake 2.
tigertron  +   397d ago
This and Halo 5 were the games that got me interested in the Xbox One. I shall definitely pick one up sometime when these games are out.

I'd also like Remedy to work on Alan Wake 2. I want to see more of Alan and hear more of The Old Gods of Asgard aka Poets of the Fall.
Convas  +   397d ago
Oh man, can't wait for Remedy to blow me away!
Master-H  +   397d ago
After this Remedy should make a new Max Payne title imo, Max Payne is their best work, better than the Rockstar one.
