gamescom 2014: Quantum Break Freezes Time

By Xbox Wire Staff
Time momentarily stopped at the Xbox gamescom 2014 Media Briefing as Sam Lake, Creative Director of acclaimed Remedy Entertainment took to the stage to raise the curtain on its highly anticipated new game, Quantum Break.

For the first time since its announcement in 2013, fans received a first-look at the Quantum Break gameplay in action, which highlighted in-game Time Manipulation features:

  • Outsmart and outmaneuver enemies with time-amplified combat, which seamlessly blends action-packed gunplay with the ability to bend and temporary freeze time
  • Leverage the frozen time to get a tactical advantage over enemies, attacking when and where they least expect it
  • Play through catastrophes as time causes the environment to pause, stutter, rewind and freeze, forcing you to strategically use time powers to navigate through the chaos and destruction


Quantum Break
is a revolutionary entertainment experience which weaves the frenetic action of a game with the tension and drama of scripted television. Fans will be able to play – as well as watch – Quantum Break exclusively on Xbox One in 2015.

Check out Xbox Wire later this week for our first impressions of
Quantum Break straight from gamescom 2014.
