Xbox Messes With Time in a Tense Trailer for Quantum Break
Game Starring Shawn Ashmore Will Launch in April
Feb 11, 2016
The first trailer for Xbox's forthcoming Quantum Break sees protagonist Jack Joyce (Shawn Ashmore) hunted by agents while he mourns the loss of his brother in a creepy cemetery. However, there's something not quite right as they make their way towards their target; time keeps freezing, jumping and blurring (via some cool VFX) and eventually it collapses altogether, leaving Joyce free to escape his fate.
The trailer was directed by Michael Spiccia of Arts & Sciences for Twofifteenmccann. It will run digitally and on social channels, with ad support internationally, while the game itself will launch on April 5 on Windows 10 and on Xbox One. Ashmore (who appeared in the X-Men franchise) also provides the voiceover on the film; he'll be joined in the game by Aiden Gillan ("Game of Thrones") as his nemesis and Dominic Monaghan ("Lord of the Rings") as Jack's genius brother, William.
