Microsoft provided us with an early copy of Quantum Break, and is allowing certain content to be previewed early. With that being said the content we are allowed to show must have editorial commentary applied to it, so the gameplay you are about to watch will have me talking over it. I know you would prefer to watch it without my voice, but we must abide by the NDA set forth, so it is what it is.
In this particular video preview you’ll get to see the game’s first Junction mission. Junctions occur after the Acts are finished, which usually feature the meat of the gameplay for each Act/Episode. In the Junction you get to play as the game’s antagonist, so you get to see behind the curtain a bit in terms of what the bad guys are up to. Although, the biggest contributions these missions give to the game are the narrative choices you must make. In each Junction you are presented with two paths to follow, each vastly different from the other. The narrative will shift based on your choice in both the game and the live action show that compliments it, so these moments offer all sorts of replayability for Quantum Break. There are at least two distinct versions of the game to play through, and there are variations of others depending on your choices, so these short missions are crucial when it comes to tailoring your own narrative in the game.
Head on up above to check out the preview. Quantum Break hits the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on April 5, 2016.
