New Quantum Break Trailer

A new trailer for Remedy’s upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Quantum Break, has just been released, featuring some commentary from the game’s creative director, Sam Lake.  Most of this footage has already been shown, but from about the 10 minute mark we see new gameplay, focusing on protagonist Jack Joyce using his time powers to navigate through a crumbling bridge.

It’s quite a stunning trailer; Remedy have clearly put a lot of effort into creating some outstanding effects and set piece moments.  I also like that powers can be used outside of combat.  My only criticism is that this new platforming sequence is quite linear; it seems like a decent change of pace from the gunplay, but I hope the final game will also contain some challenges that are more open-ended, perhaps in the form of some light puzzle-solving sections.
