At Microsoft’s Gamescom press conference in Cologne, the house of Xbox just announced the release date of Quantum Break, but that’s not all. We also get a brand new batch of screenshots.
I don't know what was wrong with the old Jack Joyce. The new one didn't click with me like the last one did. Hopefully he does a great performance though.
I'm actually the opposite lol old one didn't click with me but Shawn Ashmore is looking awesome.
Definitely loving the new cast, especially the Game of Thrones baddie! The game looked INCREDIBLE!
@Septic Yeah i was surprised to see Littlefinger from Game of Thrones in this game.
@ Dark Ocelet ..agree ...what they think ? why they replaced the old character model with an actor ..totally uninspired...at least the old one had some artistic value as it was their inspiration
they changed him for a better real actor is my guess. Cool thing they showed off is the new powers.
I like the old character better as well. He had a rough, bad guy and bad ass dude look. The new actor has a more boyish look, that may be more appropriate for the character.
@ Adexus. Agreed. Shawn was awesome in The Following and I love how they did it. Before I saw him on stage and heard his voice I said that character looks a lot like Ashmore lol.
So Shawn's the permanent new actor for Jack Joyce? I'm confused because I thought I saw two different actors on screen. This is probably why this games taking longer than expected. They through out the old actor and found a better one. Remedy is known to make a complete 180, right in middle developing their games lol only remedy can do something like that and still deliver on a promising game.
Cool. I like the new powers and all the action going on, then FULL STOP, walk around investigating the event about to unfold, plus you can change things, deep story= it all looks great too and gameplay is so imteresting.
Shawn Ashmore is a talented actor. He brings a lot more life to the character via the show and game. Have you ever seen X-men(Iceman) or The Following? This role is perfect for him.
Yeah he is talented.He was the one in the x-men movies right? and i think i prefer his character too. He is also a twin. His brother "Aaron Ashmore" is pretty talented too.He is one of the main characters on scifi's "Killjoys" www.imdb.com/title/tt3952222/ fullcredits/
Yep Aaron Ashmore is amazing in Killjoys... It's a great show. Shawn Ashmore is in most of the main X-men movies including Days of Future Past... He plays Iceman. QB is the perfect game for me since I'm a huge TV junkie.
Heres hoping Shawn Ashmore doesn't give a boring performance like the guy who played Aiden Pierce from WD Peter's Ghost voice acting, or Connor from AC 3. There's been allot terrible performances in games story driven games lately. But some good ones like Uncharted, TLOUS, TR, Kevin Spacey COD, Halo 4 and even Halo 5 looks like will have some decent actors in it. If I'm gonna play a story driven game I wanna see some great acting, period.
Maybe his voice-over wasn't up to Remedy's standard? I don't mind the switch.
They obviously got a good budget increase so were able to go for some decent named actors for the TV series section, hence the change in character model.
Weird how they completely changed Jack Joyce and put in Shawn Ashmore. I like Shawn Ashmore fine, just odd to me such a drastic update would happen like that.
That Box Art is Epic. Still my most anticipated game and I finally got a date!
Opie 2016 is gonna be awesome. Cant wait to play Quantum Break. This game looks amazing.
Scalebound/Recore/Sea of Thieves/Quantum Break/POSSIBLY Crackdown(Beta confirmed for 2016) And now Halo Wars 2...... I couldn't be more pumped..... My body is Reggie. Even the salty hate I saw on youtube videos after the stream isn't putting me down.
I love games like this and Deus Ex
I really really like Shawn Ashmore, I think he is a great actor, and I'm even more interested the game now. Nothing less, than looking great tbh, Quantum Break baby! O and it looks like Xbox wont be having that early year drought either, cant wait till early 2016.
April isn't it? Or did I read date wrong?
This game blew me away, loved Shawn Ashmore in the role. Looks fantastic, and what I love is that Microsoft took the complaints about lack of games earlier in the year and have fixed that. Recore, Quantum Break, Killer Instinct Season 3 all launching Q1 2016.
In fairness Recore will probably be a first half game. Not first Quarter. They said Spring 2016.
That could be late May

Holy f**king shit. That looks epic!
Thanks to the amazing team at Remedy.
MS really knocked it out the park today. Im still digesting all the gamescom info. So much to look forward to on xbox.
Man I loved Shawn in the following and now he is in this game. I CAN'T WAIT!
This is the game most likely to tempt me to get XB1. That early demo was very Infamous, which is a game series I really enjoy. Best looking XB1 game too.
The game looks amazing! cant wait!
So many good games, so little time. This game looks awesome, and it might be a day one purchase.
This is the one game stopping me from selling my xboxone so i hope it delivers its looking pretty sick at the moment so i doubt il be let down cant wait!
Just saw the gameplay vid...can I just say MS/Xbox are on Fire. MS I want to commend you right now when you said you would concentrate on your 1st party exclusive. Not only have you done but it looks like you have some winners! Just Wow...That guy that won the oscar for Gravity helped on this game and its f...ing great!! Scalebound looked great too...man let me get back to this conference.
Hey Iceman from Xmen movies
My god! Looks like Remedy has really stepped up their game. Death Rally, Max Payne and Alan wake are all amazing games but this looks like it's up there with the greatest upcoming titles this generation (mgs 5, Uc 4,...). I had really no plans of getting another system this gen, but because of QB I might very well do so. Also Recore seems interesting...
The new trailer and actor makes it look like they're going much more for the action game market. I preferred the old style but if it means it sells more I'm happy for them.
