Quantum break is a time bending shooter with real life actors taking part in a bunch of TV-esque cut scenes that looks downright phenomenal. Developed by Remedy Entertainment, who are well known for the Max Payne and Alan Wake series of games, Quantum Break is being released on Xbox One and the Windows Store this week!

The game’s protagonist, Jack Joyce is played by Shawn Ashmore, who I remember seeing in the Animorphs live action TV series and who also plays the role of Ice Man in the latest X-Men movies. The main antagonist, Paul Serene, is enacted by Aidan Gillen, better known for his role Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Bealish in Game of Thrones.

Quantum Break features third person cover based shooting with the addition of various time based manipulation abilities. Jack is able to emit a ‘Time Blast’ which reverses the direction of bullets, or stop time completely in order to scurry away from incoming projectiles, or sneak up on enemies. These, along with the ‘Time Rush’, ‘Time Shield’ and ‘Time Dodge’ abilities, equate to a whole lotta time bending fun!
