Quantum Break has a heavy focus on its story. Players are able to experience the fractures in time through multiple points of view thanks to gameplay, the live-action episodes within the game, emails, recordings, and more. There are also extra bits of story that can be unlocked through collectibles known as Quantum Ripples.
Quantum Ripples alter history slightly and manifest in numerous ways. Most can only be viewed in notes, but some even pop up during the live action segments of the game. You can find Quantum Ripples throughout the first four acts of Quantum Break.
