We’ve mentioned Quantum Break a time or two before: This audacious Xbox One exclusive is…a game about breaking the laws of time. Well, it’s a TV show. Actually, it’s both: And Remedy Entertainment has proven they’re willing to have fun with the idea with the latest in pirate-bashing technology.
Quantum Break has been big news for a couple years now, which often means a sizable crowd of pirating gamers waiting to jump on the bandwagon without paying. Of course, thanks to today’s advanced digital game coding, developers can code in failsafes that detect pirating via a lack of online accounts, violated DRM, etc. – and punish those trying to do it.
Those who try to download Quantum Break video game on the downlow will still be able to play – but the main character will be stuck wearing a ridiculous eyepatch the whole time. Now some people who just want to watch the world burn won’t care about the main character with a dumb accessory on the face, but for those who have any interest in playing the game or sharing clips with friends it can be a surprisingly powerful deterrent. People found this out when Remedy pulled the same trick on its previous atmospheric game, Alan Wake.
Of course, Quantum Break is a more action-oriented shooter focused on around crazy time powers – and it also has a number of authentic story “episodes” that tell a wider story and will change based on what you do in the Xbox One game. Will these episodes also feature the eye patch? We can only hope.
If you want to buy Quantum Break the real way, then you can pick it up for $60 whenever you want.
