Neil Druckman thinks that Quantum Break looks fantastic, and he can't wat to play it.
I love it when the competition acknowledge the others for their great work! I personally don't have an X1, but maybe I'll get the chance of playing it on someone else's X1 :D Did they ever talk about a PC version coming later? That would be a fantastic game to play on windows 10!
I would not expect this game to release on PC anytime soon. Maybe a year or two down the line.
@GearsdoodooBruh You can tell a potential GOTY without ever playing it yourself? Don't get me wrong, the game does look awesome. But I think people should reserve GOTY predictions for games they have actually played
@uptownsoul: In general you can kind of tell if a game is going to be good or not, by paying attention to the little details. Some things though you cannot know until the game is released including boring levels, re-hashed enemies and so on. Destiny comes to mind! Either way, so far if I had to guess Quantum Break looks absolutely amazing and right up there in the GOTY nominees. Too early to tell? Yes, but it has all the marks of it. That said, games earlier in the year tend to be forgotten at the end of the year so you never know....
Or at least let us be in the same year in which the game comes out. It's not out til next Spring lol.
Let the last of us developer speak, he knows what he's talking about.
If we get it on PC at all, that'll be awesome. I'm super happy they released Alan Wake on PC. It was a great port, with updated graphics options and everything. Anyhow, QB looks fantastic
@donthate "you can kind of tell if a game is going to be good or not" -- Plenty of games come out that are good that don't reach GOTY standards. And there are plenty of games each year that few notice before launch that end up top GOTY nominees (Shadow of Mordor 2014, Bloodborne 2015). So while I think Quantum Break looks great, talk of GOTY 2016 in early August 2015 seems a bit of a reach As a side note (and not directed at you @donthate) I find it fascinating that I have more dislikes than likes when I said the game looks great & awesome, but I still think its crazy to talk GOTY 2016 contenders in August 2015.
Only thing that had me worried was the tv show aspect. thought it had a good chance of being some cheesy b rate fmv thing. Glad to see they stepped up their game with quality actors. Day One for me.
@dothnate Watchdogs says your're wrong. Apart from the visual downgrade, based on the trailers and gameplay vids the small details you mentioned only helped to lure in unsuspected pray only to discover a bland, uninteresting game underneath. That said, Quantum Break is one of the most exciting games coming out next year and a must play for 3rd person action adventure fans out there. But calling a game GotY material from less than 10 minutes footage is naive to say the least. Look at what happened with Batman, anyone who gives it a game of the year nomination is a fool imho because they would essentially reward Warner for a releasing a broken game to 1/3 of gamers out there. No matter how good the actual game on other platforms is it does not deserve GotY. Hell, I wont even label Uncharted 4 as GotY material yet even if I know what Naughty Dog is capable of! Lets wait and see, after all we've seen so far this gen we should now know better.
Given Windows 10 focus is on Cross Play for games. And QB isn't designed to have an MP component... I'd say Windows version chances are slim to none.
@Zero I honestly dont know why you got disagrees, maybe jealous fanboys? Like you I feel it is awesome to see competitors recognize great work other companies are doing. Another one of the million reasons Naughty Dog are one of the best game developers.
Ditto! I'm a PS gamer but this looks bloody brilliant. Is this the same team that made Alan Wake for the 360? I remember being very jealous of that game when it came out. Looks like they know how to make my kind of game !
Yes, this is the same developer. They make really great games with great stories. This looks very fun.
Quantum Break is the only reason i'll purchase a X1 next year.
I'm very very tempted to get one as well but I will wait for Nintendo's move first as two systems are already too many for me anyways. If they release anything worth having aka competitive I'll go with them and play any worthwhile xbox games on my PC as most of them will eventually come to W10.
I'll be amazed if Nintendos next console even reaches 1 teraflop. In 4 years play station and xbox will be upwards of 5 teraflops
Quantum Break looks flat out amazing.
Well, I want to see people to shake hand each other in honor way.
It does look pretty good, with an interesting power set and intriguing story line. I'm a little dubious about the TV tie-in, but at least they have a decent cast to draw on so hopefully that turns out okay. I'm sure the game will be great though, because even Remedy's worst game was a lot of fun.
Yeah I agree I bought into the Defiance hype which turned out pretty bad in the cossover to the game/show side of things. We can only wait and see, as long as the game stands up in its own right then I'll be happy.
The show is passable, but the game was atrocious.
What game was that . Just curious
What I would consider Remedy's worst game? Death Rally I guess. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but in a list of things one has to be subjectively best and worst, and that would be the one. I'm also not great at racing games, particularly ones that have unusual perspectives, so your mileage may vary.
Glad I am lucky enough to have all consoles (not handhelds) and a PC again this gen, good times ahead all around for everyone.
Glad to see Sony and MS appreciate each others work.
So they should.... quantum break looks like one of the best games to come so far this generation. I'm buying "have bought" an Xbox for this alone. Well, and gears of war!
20 days till Gears Ultimate Edition brother!
Just watched the gamescom vid, looks real good so far better than I thought, just moved up my list of anticipated games, my poor wallet :'(
Neil Druckmann, Adam Boyes, Shuhei Yoshida & Phil Spencer have all been a class act in their roles. All have acknowledged playing on competitors hardware. Quantum Break looks visually awesome and fun to play, but I'm more interested in Scalebound, Crackdown 3 & ROTR at this point.
Well said. The main reason I want an X1 is for Quantum Break. I love everything Remedy does. Alan Wake was the main reason I got a 360 several years back and I've always been a PS gamer first since the PS1 came out.
It looked fantastic.
Quantum Break looks fantastic, great work Remedy.
Whelp his praise def means something!
It looked great, definitely game of the show. I'm a little confused though, is the new player character, a re-designed version of the one they showed last year, or is there multiple player characters?
New skin and voice acting to match with the actor hired to play the role in the TV show.
Ok, makes sense, thanks for the info.
I love the concept and gameplay mechanics. I hate the over-use of fog and haze masking details in the backgrounds in order to spare the GPU from having to draw at greater distances. Overall, it appears to play and look well.
Neil is a class act.
Remedy are up there with the best when it comes to story telling games. QB from what iv seen could easily be up there for GOTY 2016. definitely one I am looking forward to the most next year. Epic, Unique and fresh.
Does anybody know what story behind this time stopping is? Are they inside a virtual world or how does this work?
Not too much has been released, it's part of the lure. I am sure their will be a awesome open TV/Cinematic to start the adventure.
I like new IPs.
Definitely one of the coolest looking games so far this gen. Good work should always be acknowledged. For instance.....Need for Speed also looked pretty incredible. I don't like racing games and won't be buying it or anything.....but it's freakin' good work.
