Quantum Break, one of the most anti cipated and hyped game since recent past few weeks is all set for release next month for PC and Xbox One. The game is limited to Windows 10 only, and uses Microsoft’s DirectX 12.
Quantum Break will require a Constant Internet connection on PC
Though, being a single player game with a plenty of action, it requires constant high speed Internet connection on the PCs in order to stream the story related cutscenes in the game.
The word came right from the senior narrative designer at Remedy Entertainment, Greg Louden during recent event this week when he told Game Informer that it was ‘kind of natural choice for us‘ after knowing the size of video episodes which would have resulted in more disc space. He said,
We have 40 different variations of the show in total where basically your choices get to make it evolve and change whether it’s from a junction choice or we have these things called “Quantum Ripples” which essentially unlocked sort of deleted scenes from the show. Then combined with that, the show length can change based on your decisions because some episodes are longer as a result and some episodes are shorter. It basically evolves and that’s why we needed to stream it… When we figured out how big the data was, we had to backpedal and think of some good solutions, and this made sense.
For Xbox One gamers, they will have the option of downloading the episodes rendered at 1080p while PC players will be enjoying the video streaming at the resolution of 4K, instead of downloading each which will definitely require more disc space. But this doesn’t seem a good decision as well for those gamers who have a slow speed Internet Connection.
The game is releasing on April 5th for Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned for more updates!
