Quantum Break is the latest game from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake). If you’re a fan of the developer, you’re undoubtedly aware of how much it loves its stories. Nothing is quite as it seems, so players have to pay close attention and connect the dots to find out what’s going on.
With Quantum Break, there is a lot going on in the background, and if you’re the type who doesn’t really pay attention to cutscenes, ignores collectibles, and plans on skipping the live-actions episodes between acts, you miss out on the bigger picture. Remedy weaved an interesting tale for its latest title that hops through time as it strings important events and characters along.
Before we begin breaking down the story for you, there is one thing you should be aware of. There are choices made throughout the game at ‘Junctions.’ These alter certain events for characters but they do not change the fundamental core of Quantum Break’s narrative. For the sake of this feature, we will be focusing on the overarching story that progresses no matter what decisions you make during the game.
