The December 2015 issue of Game Informer features a 12-page cover story on Quantum Break, Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming Xbox One exclusive.
Quantum Break follows Jack Joyce, who together with his childhood friend Paul Serene, gets caught up in a time-travel experiment gone wrong and acquire time-manipulation powers. That same experiment, unfortunately, creates a fracture in time that threatens to bring time to a complete stop. Paul jumps into the future looking for safety and emerges back in the past moments later as a much older, sadistic version of himself. Jack must uses his powers to confront his friend and fix time before it comes to a complete stop.
Here’s Game Informer’s coverage outline:
In the latest issue of Game Informer, we travel to Espoo, Finland and get the full scoop on Quantum Break’s lengthy development process. We break down exactly how the game and its show will work together to tell a larger narrative. The Quantum Break show will feature four episodes, but players’ actions during the game will change events in the show leading to wildly different events in each episode. Remedy also put a controller in our hands, so we have the world’s first hands-on impressions with the game. Quantum Break releases on Xbox One on April 5, but you can learn about how Remedy hopes to revolutionize video game storytelling by reading the issue later today.
In addition to our 12-page look at Quantum Break, we have a 10-page feature detailing the making of Bethesda’s sure-fire hit Fallout 4. The team at Frictional Games also shares their thoughts with us about the horror genre and their experience developing Soma, and composer Austin Wintory talks to us about his work on soundtracks for games like Journey and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Meanwhile, our annual Holiday Buying Guide is sure to give you some great gift ideas for your holiday shopping.
The rest of our December issue is packed with more great gaming coverage. In addition to previews on games like Battleborn, Just Cause 3, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we also have our first look at Far Cry: Primal. You can also check out the issue for reviews on games like Halo 5: Guardians, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and Guitar Hero Live.
Print subsribers will receive the December issue later this week, while digital subscribers can access the magazine later today.
