Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break is coming to Windows 10. It will release on the same day as the Xbox One version, on 05 April 2016. Those who pre-order the Xbox One version between now and 04 April will receive a token that’s good for one free copy of the Windows 10 version.
Remedy’s next big thing since Alan Wake has ridden a wave of positive coverage and optemism since it was revealed. Hearing that the once Xbox One exclusive is now being made available to more people on the PC, is great! Sadly, there are a number of Xbox One “fans” who are livid about this news. Xbox main man Phil Spencer took to Twitter last night to discuss the matter with a number of Xbox One owners who see this move on behalf of Microsoft as some sort of a betrayal. The feeling is that removing another Xbox One exclusive (Ori and the Blind Forest was another recent exclusive that made its way to Windows 10) makes the console less appealing to own. Eurogamer rounded up some of the best Tweets, and Spencer’s response to them, which you can read here.
Now, about the game’s PC requirements. While the minimum specs aren’t too unreasonable by contemporary PC gaming standards, the recommended and newly released “ultra” settings are HEAVY. Check them out below.
These specs are actually the updated ones that were shared via the game’s official Twitter account. You can see the original Windows 10 announcement here.
There’s also a new live-action trailer for the game which you can watch below. It’s great! But they may want to change that opening splash screen now…
