Quantum Break opened Xbox’s Gamescom press conference with a brand new cast and, finally, a release date.
Replacing the characters seen in previous demos are stars of film and TV, including X-Men’s Iceman, Shawn Ashmore. Ashmore plays the main character, who has been given the same time-shifting powers as his brother, played by Dominic Monaghan of Lost and Lord of the Rings fame.
Also on board, shown in a trailer for the live-action TV series that will be unlocked as you progress through the game, were Lance Reddick of Lost and Fringe and Game of Thrones’ Aiden Gillan.
The in-game characters are all fully performance-captured.
“Our goal is to combine a heart-pounding action game with a live-action show into something totally new that you wouldn’t expect,” said Remedy Games’ Sam Lake.
The title will arrive on Xbox One on April 5th.
