Quantum Break is a huge title that is highly anticipated by many Xbox gamers out there, however it’s been a long wait, with a number of trailer releases and a pushed back release date of April 5th, 2016.
Thankfully we can still get a look at the game before that time as Game Informer have this week launched a new trailer about the game and its developers, Remedy Entertainment.
In case you forgot, Quantum Break is an action adventure third person shooter set to be released alongside a live-action series, as well as featuring digital episodes that the player can interact with in the game.
Check it out below.
Players play as Jack Joyce, a person with time manipulation powers in a world where time stutters, making everything freeze except Joyce. Players can use a variety of firearms, as well as their time-manipulating powers to defeat enemies in the game. Joyce can stop time temporarily, allowing him to escape from attacks or freeze enemies, unleash a “Time Blast”, which is an offensive projectile, and reverse the direction of bullets.
He can also interact with the environments, creating environmental effects that would harm hostile characters. He also also utilize his “Time Rush” ability, which allows him to spawn right next to an enemy to perform an immediate melee takedown. In addition, players can speed up the time around him and swap between covers to diversify attention from unaware enemies. As for defensive abilities, Joyce can protect himself from attacks by deploying a “Time Shield”, which can deflect bullets, performing “Time Dodge”, which allows him to dash quickly to evade from attacks or simply hiding behind covers.
