Remedy: A Lot of Effort Going Into Quantum Break PC; Tearing & Other Issues To Be Fixed


The big news of the day came from Remedy and Microsoft. A rumor started circulating about Quantum Break PC launching day and date with the Xbox One version on April 5, and a few hours ago it was all confirmed.

Actually, in the official FAQ Remedy even revealed the game's system requirements, which are the highest yet in a game (not to mention that Quantum Break will be the first DirectX12-only game).

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8350 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R7 260X
  • HDD: 55 GB Available Space
  • DX: DirectX 12

Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 4.0 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System
  • GPU RAM: 6 GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 980 Ti or Radeon R9 Fury X
  • HDD: 55 GB Available Space
  • DX: DirectX 12

Remedy Entertainment confirmed with the following tweet that the PC (Windows 10) version is being handled in-house, rather than by an external studio.

However, today Remedy and Microsoft also released more gameplay footage of Quantum Break (Xbox One version) and lots of tearing was visible, as you can see below for instance.

Head of PR Thomas Puha clarified that the footage comes from an unfinished build and tearing, just like Jack Joyce's wacky jacket physics, will be fixed in the final version.

With those requirements and DirectX 12 as min spec, Quantum Break on PC will now be expected to deliver some of the best graphics ever seen in a videogame. Let's hope that Remedy can meet such hype.

In the meantime, here's a new live action trailer.
