Xbox is now ramping up production for a new video game series, Quantum Break filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
Quantum Break is an upcoming third-person shooter action game to be released for the Xbox One. It is being developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios. A Quantum Break digital live-action series is also in production. The game will feature digital episodes that interact with the game based on the player’s choices.
According to reports, the game is played from a cover-based third-person perspective, with time manipulation powers. The gameplay is split into segments. After playing through a segment of the game an episode of the digital show will play.
Quantum Break is set at and around the fictional North Eastern U.S. Riverport University where a time travel experiment has gone wrong. The event not only causes time to start breaking down, but also grants the three main characters—Jack Joyce, Beth Wilder, and Paul Serene—the ability to manipulate time. For example, Serene, the main antagonist, can see into the future to decide which choices to make in the present; while Joyce, one of the two protagonists, can stop time. The two are pursued by Monarch Solutions, a corporation founded by Serene.
A Quantum Break live-action series is also in production, with Remedy stating that “how you play the game impacts the show, and the show informs how you play the game.” At the end of each game episode the player will be presented with a choice, that affects the events in both the game and the show.
