Quantum Break Demo Will Leave You “Speechless” at Gamescom, says Remedy

Hype for Gamescom is quickly building up and one of our most anticipated games is finally going to be revealed.Responding to a gamers question on twitter Remedy replied by saying “the demo at Gamescom will leave him “speechless”. Obviously,that’s PR talking but it’s great to see how much confidence Remedy has in its project.

The story is too old to be commented.

Honestly, I know this is just a PR stunt statement, but coming from Remedy I 100% believe it. I cannot wait!!

I honestly wasn't too impressed with Alan Wake. Though, I'm hoping to be wowed by Quantum. As, it seems to be shaping up very nicely.

-Foxtrot1110d ago

Alan Wake was brilliant, shame we didn't get a sequel

Well to each his own, but I think many gamers were impressed by Alan Wake. As I have said many times before AW was one of my favorite games from last gen. I owned all 3 platforms and AW was one of the best games from last gen. Remedy has a very unique flare with how they dev their games from a story and gameplay perspective, their characters always grab my attention too, plus they really look like they are pushing new tech in this game, this is why I'm so excited to see what's going on with Quantum Break.

Alan wake and Quantum break are two different types of games.

Snookies121110d ago

I just found Alan Wake a bit... I dunno, boring in terms of gameplay. The story was pretty neat though.

@700p - I never compared the two, I know they're very different.

I really excited to see if they can justify the name. I'm a real fan of the name sake's material matter and I am expecting big things.

Alan Wake was a really good game unfortunately there prolly wont be a part 2 do to poor sales. Just shows that FPS overruns xbox platforms. If it didn't then Alan Wake wouldve sold very well. Most of its sales came when the game was dead cheap.

QB looks to be another awesome game, lets just hope it sells better then Alan Wake did.

OhMyGandhi1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

in terms of actual gameplay, Alan Wake wasn't overly inventive. But what gameplay it did have, including buttery smooth combat and general movement, was damn well implemented.

Alan Wake is one of the best games I've played, simply because it had an incredible soundtrack, and one of the most well realized environments I've seen. The atmosphere was impeccable, remaining ominous and foreboding from from start to finish.

I feel that it's the closest I'll get to Twin Peaks without having to resort to Deadly Premonition. I give this game and Remedy HUGE props for making a game that feels so refreshing, and original, and placing it in a UNIQUE environment.

It's the same reason I can play 2008's Prince Of Persia and love the entire game design, even though so many seem turned off by it's (admittedly) shallow combat. I will always support games that try to do things differently.

Kingdomcome2471110d ago

Alan Wake is on of my personal favorites as well. "It's an ocean" I loved the ending.

ifistbrowni1110d ago

I can't wait to see Quantum Break, specifically because what Remedy did with Alan Wake. It's a shame Alan Wake was one and done.. I really enjoyed that game (and the two add-on DLC).

tuglu_pati1110d ago

Can't wait to be "speechless"

combatcash1110d ago

Alan was a fantastic game, extremely underrated. I was hoping for a sequel, this game may justify me purchasing an xbox one.

AngelicIceDiamond1110d ago

Its about time Remedy shows off the goods. This game has been in the dark for far to long.

Im stoked.

guitarded771110d ago

-Foxtrot... well, it did get American Nightmare. It wasn't a full blown AW game, but was kinda a sequel. I liked Alan Wakes gameplay and environments, but hated Alan Wake as a character. He was a pretentious douche.

Quantum Break is the one XBOX One game I'm really wanting to see more of. QB, a new Gears... and Forza Horizon 2 would make an X1 really compelling to me. I don't really care about Dead Rising or Crackdown... or Halo that much (but I'll still play Halo). MS needs to keep it up what they started this gen in terms of new games. I was QB to do very well, because it could reinforce investment into less traditional shooters MS is known for.

Bloodjunkie1110d ago

Alan Wake was the biggest disappointment in my long gamer life! Never saw a such boring linear horror survival game.

donthate1110d ago

Quantum Break is trying to break through a new genre in gaming, melding TV and games together, so I am ecstatic!

What is shown so far has been off the chart. One of my most anticipated games on Xbox One, but freaken ay, there are so many! :D

nix1110d ago

Alan Wake was good enough. i haven't played the game because it's 360 exclusive but i was interested about that game apart from Gears of War. the game's only fault (i think) is it came out on wrong platform. it sold more than 1 million but i think 360 is just for the trigger happy people. if you look at most of the new IPs exclusive to PS3, they get accepted well. TLOU is the latest example.

I am quite interested in Quantum Break but i wonder how many xbox fans are going to buy it. considering 50% of PS4 adopters are from 360 already, i'm worried about how well the game is going to sell.

as much as i am intrigued by Quantum Break, i'm also worried about how it might get repetitive. i so far know that the game features "pause" moment. it's an interesting concept but if throughout the game, all you do is pause and investigate/destroy, the game might become little boring.

here's hoping it's none of that.

abstractel1110d ago

I think Quantum Break will be one of the best reasons to buy an Xbox One. Remedy is a great developer. My only concern is the tie-in with the tv-series and how much that will interfere with gameplay for those of us who don't want to care about the show.

Volkama1110d ago

I'm with you, Alan Wake was one of those well-rated games that I just didn't get on with.

I have high hopes for Quantum Break, but I don't like over-exaggerated PR claims like this one.

starchild1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

Alan Wake is one of my favorite games. And the Max Payne games were great too. If Quantum Break turns out to be even close to as good as Alan Wake it might be the game that pushes me over the edge to buy an XB1.

Darkstares1110d ago

The premise of Alan Wake was awesome but I found the actual gameplay quite boring.

-Foxtrot1110d ago

@guitarded7

I didn't really enjoy American Nightmare, I never finished it.

It felt like Microsoft trying to make it appeal to the action crowd. The game just didn't feel Alan Wake like at times.

I hope you don't need to play it to understand AW2.

VealParmHero1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

Alan Wake is exactly the kind of game people get on xbox for NOT having. It takes things in a new direction and was sort of a "risky" game to make. Sometimes I feel like ya can't win...game did not get enough credit at all.

Yeah...speechless like wtf is this?? QTE all day I guess they have 1 QTE game per year.... RYSE now QB lOl... Remedy doesn't make great games... their games are par for the most part...they're max payne ports even blew.

stiggs1110d ago

Really?

You're not even trying...

whoyouwit041110d ago

Um Have you seen the order? besides, when have remedy games ever been full of QTE, and Remedy did no port for max payne you dumb ass, Remedy created max payne, but nice try.

Jonny5isalive1110d ago

You mean to one boring game with the kid and that other one that came out last year pn ps3?

HAHAH bet you played max payne on your precious ps2. That version sucked balls because the ps2 was weak. Playing on my PC that was from 99 max payne was Maxed out and was way better than the ps2 version and xbox version. I felt sorry for my friend that had it on ps2.

IHassounah1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

Max Paune 1 and 2 were created by Remedy , ported by Rockstargames ....

Remedy are the real deal.

So looking forward to seeing what they show at GC.

LackTrue4K1110d ago

rumor has it,
it will....
.....got pushed back "AGAIN"

Bigpappy1110d ago

I hope it is impressive. But I wish they would just have said something like: "I think you will really like what you see from or Demo at Gamescom. Don't miss it". "Speechless" should come from someone independent of the game.
