Get Hyped With New Quantum Break Trailer But You May Want To Hold Off From Pre-Ordering

The dust is just beginning to settle after the announcement of Quantum Break coming to PC. It’s a big move on Microsoft’s part, taking a key Xbox One cornerstone and effectively ridding it of exclusivity. We’ve seen already the terrifyingly huge system requirements, but now we can actually wrap our eyes around a brand new Quantum Break trailer and see what the fuss is all about. Or not, as the case may be. 

But that’s not all, because Microsoft is also running a slightly strange promotion that may mean pre-ordering a copy of Quantum Break on PC is a bad move. Firstly Quantum Break looks as if it’s going to be a Windows 10 Store exclusive. And secondly, because anybody who pre-orders a digital copy of Quantum Break on Xbox One, will receive a 25-digit redemption code for a free copy of the PC version.

Why should that affect your pre-order? Well Quantum Break is going to be a huge deal for Xbox One owners. They’ve been looking forward to it for years. It’s going to shift millions of copies. If only a small number, say 500,000, were to buy it digitally, that would mean an additional 500,000 Quantum Break Windows 10 keys could potentially be flooding the market. We all know the result when there’s sky-high supply - rock bottom prices. When Microsoft follows through on this deal there’s going to be thousands upon thousands of cheap Quantum Break keys. That would beat spending the likely $60 on the Windows Store wouldn’t it?

Anyway, enough of that, it's trailer time...

Quantum Break is coming to PC and Xbox One on April 5th. In the meantime be sure to check out those huge system requirements for Quantum Break to make sure your rig is up to the task!

Not at all, if you have a legitimate key that's not been used you have ever right to sell it.

If you're actually interested, Polygon did an investigation as to where some of the 'grey-market' codes come from on site like Kinguin and G2A. Some are legitimate, and others, while not stolen, are gotten in kinda shady ways. http://www.polygon.com/2015/2/9/8006693/the-truth-behind-those-mysteriously-cheap-gray-market-game-codes

The system requirements of this game is too much.... We poor gamers cannot afford to buy high specs system I wish they make the game that even in weak pc can work. I know this is a new generation of games and pc. but still it is too much..

It can be badass when it is done right. Sadly NFS 2015 did it in worst possible way.

Well there's two ways you can handle this. Upgrade the cpu, gpu, and maybe the ram, or build a new pc. Make one: https://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist

Remedy clarified that an i7 and 980Ti would be for ultra settings, not sure yet if they're for 4K or 1080p.

the trailer and concept looks great. I think xbox owners should definitely preorder this game to get the PC key as well. And if you have a gaming PC as well you can play of both if you want (different places for example) since the 2 versions share saves. or you can sell it if you dont want it. BUT there may be a problem. The key for the microsoft store may be activatable only by the same microsoft account that has it on Xbox, aka the original owner. I havent read this anywhere, this is just my own speculation. If this isnt the case I ll be grabbing me one of those keys.


P.S. isnt that guy playing on X-men? I think he is.

Some people assume every single person with a Titan is showing off. This mentality must end.

My bad, i didnt even look at your res. i apologise and hang my head in shame. I am usually fairly rational but that comment was flippent and undeserving. I shall take my red face and leave now (and remember to check peoples specs properly in future).
