Quantum Break to Have Shifting TV Episodes Between Xbox One and Game

Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that its shooter, Quantum Break, will store episodes of the accompanying TV series on the disc.



Earlier the developer announced that Quantum Break utilizes the highly accurate destruction system, Digital Molecular Matter (DMM).

Remedy Entertainment’s Lead Writer, Sam Lake, said,

“Acts of the game are interwoven with episodes of the show. What we have as connecting tissue are these moments of choice related to the fiction of time powers.”

“Our bad guy in the game has the most powerful time powers of all, and he has this junction ability where he’s able to see glimpses of different futures, different timelines. It’s almost like a dynamic player-created cliffhanger at the end of each act.

“You get to explore these glimpses and visions of two different futures, and you make a choice as to which comes to be. And from that we shift into an episode of the show. From the first scene you’ll get alternate content depending on the choice you’ve made.”

Depending on the outcome of these alternate futures and the choices you make throughout the campaign, the on-disc TV episodes will shift.
