At this year’s EGX London I watched the full 20 minute Quantum Break demo played live that was previously only shown in full to press behind closed doors at Gamescom, but now shown to the public. (Although I did actually have a press pass.) Unfortunately recording wasn’t allowed
so you’ll just have to watch the above video of the first half of the Gamescom demo that Remedy released last month, if you haven’t seen it already.
Remedy have finally released the full video, commentated by Quantum Break’s Creative Director Sam Lake, which I’ve replaced the previous video with, so you can watch that above!
As you can see Quantum Break looks incredible, not just the best looking Xbox One game but probably the best looking console game period! And the full demo not only looks even better played live rather than a compressed YouTube video, but also also had more gameplay as they showed some platforming sections after a ship crashes into a bridge as seen in previous trailers.
Will Quantum Break Support Kinect 2?
The reason for this article is that after the demo I asked Remedy’s CEO Matias Myllyrinne (I think it was him, apologies if I’m wrong) if Quantum Break had any Kinect 2 features and he just smiled and said “We’re not announcing anything yet.” Now this isn’t exactly a confirmation but the fact that he smiled, used the word “yet” and didn’t deny any Kinect 2 support gives us at least a bit more hope than before that Quantum Break will in fact have some Kinect 2 support. Remember, you read it here on 123KINECT first!
Do you hope that Quantum Break will support Kinect 2 in some way? Are you planning on getting it regardless? Let us know in the comments below. Meanwhile, for anyone who may not have seen Quantum Break before and don’t know what it’s about here is a fact sheet and a few more trailers, the first featuring live-action footage from the Quantum Break TV show that’s included on the disc, plus a behind the scenes ViDoc. All the graphics are real-time in-game graphics running on Xbox One, apart from the live action scenes obviously:
