The Quantum Break Steam release has been announced, allowing one of Microsoft’s most anticipated games of 2016 to be able to come to a broader PC audience. The game has also somewhat lessened its technical requirements, now being playable with Windows 7 and DirectX 11. The game will release on Steam next month.
Previously, Quantum Break was exclusive to the Xbox One and Windows 10, leaving people that refused to upgrade to the much-maligned Windows 8 and 10 in the lurch. However, with the Quantum Break PC release getting a lot of criticism for numerous technical issues, they may have been the lucky ones until Microsoft fixed the port.
Now, the Quantum Break Steam release has been announced. Soon, if you’ve been wanting to play the game on Steam rather than Microsoft’s own online gaming store, you’ll be able to do that.
Quantum Break tells the story of a man named Jack Joyce, who’s trying to prevent the universe from ending as a fracture in time threatens to freeze everything. Fighting against Monarch Solutions and its leader Paul Serene, Jack and a number of other characters must work together to prevent the Fracture in Time from growing any further.
The Quantum Break Steam release version will be the latest version of what Quantum Break’s PC version is on now, and will also include the full game. As opposed to the bad port that Quantum Break originally got, this should help the game to run more smoothly on other computers. Hopefully this isn’t just a way for Microsoft to get more people to buy Windows 10 as a form of “tech support”.
Microsoft also confirmed that alongside the Quantum Break Steam release would be the Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition. In addition to a physical copy of the game, it will include a Blu-Ray of the live-action miniseries that accompanies the game, and a number of other goodies.
Quantum Break will be launching on Steam on September 14.
