Quantum Break, a game that we first got a glimpse of when Microsoft revealed the Xbox One nearly three years ago, finally has a release date. Best yet, those who pre-order the game will receive a nice bonus.
The third-person shooter action game puts players in control of protagonist Jack Joyce, a man capable of manipulating time. Interestingly enough, there's also a live-action digital series that plays out alongside the main game which tells the story of the antagonists. Remedy has said that how you play the game impacts the show which subsequently informs players on how to play the game.
Originally an Xbox One exclusive, Microsoft on Thursday revealed that Quantum Break will also be coming to the PC. What's more, every copy of Quantum Break for Xbox One will come with a full-game download for Alan Wake for Xbox 360 plus its two expansion packs – The Signal and The Writer – which can be played on the Xbox One via backward compatibility.
It doesn't stop there, however, as anyone that pre-orders the game for Xbox One (at participating retailers or through the Xbox Store) will receive a full-game download of Alan Wake's American Nightmare for the 360.
But wait, there's more! Anyone that pre-orders the digital version of the game, purchases an Xbox One digital token or pre-orders a Quantum Break Xbox One bundle ($349) will receive the Windows 10 version of the game free of charge.
If you're at all interested in Quantum Break, I'd highly recommend pre-ordering to take advantage of these extras (especially if you haven't yet played Alan Wake).
Quantum Break goes on sale April 5 but if you pre-order the bundle, you'll get it a full week early on March 29.
