Remedy's latest game goes full Microsoft at launch

Remedy's Quantum Break is a fascinating mixture of game and traditional television show, and the company has announced a release date of April 5. Don't worry, PC gamers: You won't be left out.

"Xbox wants to empower gamers to play the games they want with the people they want on the devices they want, so Microsoft Studios and Remedy Entertainment will launch Quantum Break on Windows 10 simultaneously with the Xbox One version on April 5, 2016," the release states. "Anyone who pre-orders the Xbox One digital version of Quantum Break through the Xbox Store, purchases an Xbox One digital token at participating retailers, or pre-orders an Xbox One Special Edition Quantum Break bundle, will receive the Windows 10 version of the game downloadable at the Windows Store via redemption code."

So even if you just want to play on the PC, why not pick up the Xbox One version? You'll get both copies for the same price.

You'll also get a chance to catch up on Remedy's last game if you preorder Quantum Break:

Two of Remedy Entertainment’s most popular and critically-acclaimed classics — Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare — are now part of the Quantum Break experience. Every copy of Quantum Break for Xbox One will come with a full-game download for Alan Wake for Xbox 360, plus its two add-on packs, The Signal and The Writer, playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility. Fans who pre-order Quantum Break for Xbox One at participating retailers or through the Xbox Store will also receive a full-game download of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare for Xbox 360.

So if you're interested in Quantum Break and pay for a copy on the Xbox One before release, you'll get a backwards compatible copy of Alan Wake, its expansions and American Nightmare as well as a download code for the PC version of the game which will launch on the same day.

The latest trailer for Quantum Break is below.

It should also be noted that you'll need a pretty powerful computer to run the game, here are the specs:

The preorder bundle with the included PC copy of Quantum Break and Alan Wake games runs until April 4. We're also still holding out hope for Alan Wake 2.
