Quantum Break was released earlier this year for Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One. The game was under development by Remedy Entertainment, the studio known for developing famous Alan Wake. The game was announced as an Xbox One exclusive, until February this year when Microsoft confirmed the Windows 10 version of the game.
Initially, the game was available for purchase only from Microsoft’s Windows Store, until August when the studio announced Steam and physical retail of the game, supported with Windows 7, 8.1 and DirectX 11 as well. The Steam release was then delayed from September 7th till September 29th and according to the reports, the Steam version of Quantum Break does not support DirectX 12 and SLI options.
The Steam version was supposedly going to be better than the Windows store with having more features, reaching out to the most popular digital store on the PC platform, but it seems that all the hype among the fans for pushing the game performance with their newly built gaming rigs won’t be possible. Quantum Break supports FreeSync and G-Sync features on the Windows store version and it is expected that the developers might add all of the lacking features in the coming weeks with the update. According to the developers, those who own GTX 1080 can still enjoy the game with the right settings and compare the graphics with ‘high‘ and ‘ultra‘ settings in different in-game areas.
However, the Steam gamers are allowed with option of playing in ultrawide 21:9 resolutions on DirectX 11, just like the Windows store version that supports DirectX 12. The game is available on Steam for $39.99 with having 68 GB as the download size. Remedy Entertainment also released a Timeless Collectors Edition of the game that comes with 6 discs for those who wish to get the copy instead of downloading the game. Stay tuned for more updates!
