Quantum Break – “Live Action Stuff is Good”, You’ll be “Positively Surprised” By It

Published

 on

Tweets coming out of the development team of Quantum Break are optimistic about how the title hopes to handle its ambitious claim to blend video game and live action. According to preliminary reports, after playing through a segment of the game, you will be able to watch a live action segment.

Not much news is available for how this will work exactly or how the gameplay and live-action segments will mesh together, but Thomas Puha, head of PR for Remedy Entertainment, the game’s developer, is sure gamers will like it.

The game is a third-person, cover-based shooter that centers around a main character with time manipulation powers. While not inherently an innovative or new mechanic, Puha is confident that the implementation of the time powers will be robust and interesting, allowing for multiple approaches to the game’s problems and will provide enough reason for gamers to come back and retry different areas of the game for different results.

Quantum Break is an XBox One exclusive and is slated for an early 2016 release. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further details regarding Quantum Break out of Gamescom 2015.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
