This is the first time I have heard of Quantum Break, because I was either ignoring Xbox One’s exclusive games altogether or I was just not being informed enough about certain games. Anyhow, I’m so happy to see that Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment decide to release Quantum Break for both PC and Xbox One on the same day. I don’t own Xbox One, because I got PS4. To tell the truth, I rarely touch my PS4, because I’m gaming on PC so much. This is why whenever an exclusive game for a console comes out, I would cringe because I rather play any game on PC. I got a PS4 just in case an exclusive title that I want to play would not come to PC. Nonetheless, I had decided long ago that I would not touch Xbox One even though I’m owning Xbox 360. I guess if Microsoft hadn’t announced that Quantum Break would be available for PC, I would definitely never have heard of Quantum Break.
What is even more interesting is that Quantum Break is not only a game but it’s also a TV show. Hmmm… to tell the truth, I’m very much confused on this whole idea. I still don’t know how well this whole idea of combining TV show and a game into one entertainment product would play out when Quantum Break comes out. Right now, I’m pretty much confused on this. Nonetheless, I guess new experience won’t hurt as long it will pan out nicely.
Quantum Break’s PC recommended spec is so epic in this moment in time. Don’t believe me? Well, let me list the spec for you:
- OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
- CPU: Intel Core i7 4790, 4GHz or AMD equivalent
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 980 Ti or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X
- RAM: 16 GB
- VRAM: 6 GB
- HDD: 55 GB available space
- DX: DirectX 12
If you’re from the future, the spec may seem like a joke, but for anyone who’s on Xbox One right now would think the spec is out of this world. LOL, NVIDIA GeForce 980 Ti is a beast. VRAM 6 GB is also a beast. You can’t go with i5 processor if you want to meet the recommended spec for Quantum Break.
The spec doesn’t worry me since I’m more of a PC gamer than a console gamer even though I own 3 consoles at the moment. The consoles would be PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360. I think Quantum Break would be graphically pleasant if not super nice in regarding to recommended spec. Of course, the gameplay argument (i.e., the gameplay mechanics and the storyline) would creep in when it comes down to decide if a game is a good game or not, but you’re fooling yourself if you think graphics don’t matter when playing a game. In a nutshell, Quantum Break needs to have both good gameplay and graphics in order for me to think it’s a good game.
With Microsoft’s Windows 10 blessing for Quantum Break, I think many people who game on PC would definitely pick up Quantum Break title. Well, I’m one of these people for sure. Expect me to pick up the title in April 5th of 2016. I may preorder and I may not. Nonetheless, I want to see myself be playing this game around April 5th or so. Furthermore, I’m going to play this game on Windows 10. Anyhow, check out Quantum Break’s related videos right after the break. Enjoy!
