Quantum Break is no longer an Xbox One exclusive title, with Microsoft announcing a Windows 10 PC version that will hit on the same day as on Xbox One. In an interesting move, the PC version will have cross-save compatibility with Xbox One, allowing you to transition between the two games as you wish. If you’re wondering why you might want to spend $120 on one game, the answer is that you won’t have to, as pre-orders of the digital version will receive both games at no extra cost.
Not only that, but pre-orders will also get an Xbox 360 copy of Alan Wake, along with two of its DLC packs, The Signal, and The Writer. All three of these will be backwards compatible for Xbox One, making it so you can play them all on the same system. Select retailers will also give players a free copy of Alan Wake: American Nightmare.
Along with this news came the minimum and recommended PC system specs for Quantum Break. Minimum specs are: Windows 10 64-bit, DirectX 12, Intel Core i5-4460, 2.70GHz or AMD FX-6300, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x, 2GB VRAM, 8GB RAM, and 55GB of hard drive space.
Recommended specs are a bit higher: Windows 10 64-bit, DirectX 12, Intel Core i7 4790, 4GHz or AMD equivalent, NVIDIA GeForce 980 Ti or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, 6GB VRAM, 16GB RAM, and still 55GB of hard drive space.
These announcements and a few more were explained in the video below. Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment also released a new trailer that focuses on the story behind the game.
Quantum Break will hit Xbox One and PC on April 5th.
