[Original Story] Two weeks ago a possible PC version of Quantum Break, the upcoming game developed by Remedy Entertainment, has been rated by the Brazilian Advisory Board for video games. The rating has been removed shortly after becoming public, but it seems like Quantum Break is indeed going to be released on PC soon.

According to German website GameStar, the PC version of Quantum Break will be released alongside the Xbox One release on April 5th. The website claims to have received news of the PC version of the game straight from Remedy during a preview event. As Remedy and Microsoft have yet to share more on the matter, we must take all this with a grain of salt.

According to GameStar, the Xbox One version will also come with some nice pre-order bonuses. All those pre-order the game at retail will also get another game from Remedy, Alan Wake, complete with the American Nightmare add-on. Like for the PC version of Quantum Break, the Xbox One version pre-order extras have yet to be confirmed.

Quantum Break promises to be one of the best games releasing this year, thanks to its cinematic experience. The game is set at Riverport University, a fictional university located in the Northeastern United States, where a time travel experiment has gone terribly wrong. The failed experiment grants main characters Jack Joyce and Paul Serene time based abilities which will be quite helpful during the course of the game.

Quantum Break will be released on April 5th on Xbox One. More news on the possible PC version of the game should be coming soon, so stay tuned for all the latest news on Remedy’s upcoming new game.
