Remedy Studios has announced the availability of its upcoming third-person shooter, Quantum Break, for the PC. Prior to the announcement, Quantum Break was first unveiled back in 2013 as an Xbox One exclusive. What makes this the game interesting (or not) is the fact that it will be the first DirectX 12-only game to be released.
One wouldn’t be wrong to assume that Quantum Break requires a high-end system to be playable. Indeed it does. At minimum, one would need a GTX 760 0r a Radeon R7 260x graphics card along with either an Intel Core i5-4460 or an AMD FX-6300 processor. Minimum RAM requirements is fairly standard, only needing 8GB.
Quantum Break’s recommended specifications, however, is less forgiving. To run the game smoothly, one would first require an Intel Core i7-4790 or an AMD equivalent processor. It is also recommended that one has either a GTX 980 Ti or a Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. Oh, almost forgot the 16GB RAM recommendation. Talk about an “expensive” game.
The upcoming Hitman game will be the first triple-A title to support DirectX 12, but Quantum Break takes this whole concept to another level by being a DirectX 12-only game.
Interestingly, gamers that pre-order Quantum Break on Xbox One will also be receiving a copy of the game on Windows 10 for free. The promotion runs until April 4th. In addition to that, pre-orders will also include backward compatible downloads of Alan Wake and its expansion, American Nightmare, for the Xbox One. It’s good to see Microsoft bringing what once used to be an Xbox Exclusive to the PC. Now, about Halo..
