Quantum Break, the newest project from Remedy that plans to marry gaming with traditional television, was an Xbox One exclusive when it was unveiled at E3 2013 and continued to be so until earlier on today. Turns out Microsoft wants PC gamers to enjoy it too.
“Xbox wants to empower gamers to play the games they want with the people they want on the devices they want, so Microsoft Studios and Remedy Entertainment will launch Quantum Break on Windows 10 simultaneously with the Xbox One version on April 5, 2016,” the release states.
“Anyone who pre-orders the Xbox One digital version of Quantum Break through the Xbox Store, purchases an Xbox One digital token at participating retailers, or pre-orders an Xbox One Special Edition Quantum Break bundle, will receive the Windows 10 version of the game downloadable at the Windows Store via redemption code.”
If you were planning to play on a PC and happen to own an Xbox One, you might as well get two for the price of one, right?
But that’s not all, by pre-ordering you’ll also score one of Remedy’s best back catalogue franchises too.
Two of Remedy Entertainment’s most popular and critically-acclaimed classics — Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare — are now part of the Quantum Break experience. Every copy of Quantum Break for Xbox One will come with a full-game download for Alan Wake for Xbox 360, plus its two add-on packs, The Signal and The Writer, playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility. Fans who pre-order Quantum Break for Xbox One at participating retailers or through the Xbox Store will also receive a full-game download of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare for Xbox 360.
It’s worth noting that the PC version of Quantum Break is going to require an almost quantum computer to run, toting some pretty high end recommended specs.
Quantum Break will release for both Xbox One and PC on April 5.
