Quantum Break coming to Windows 10 same day as Xbox One

Originally announced as a Xbox One exclusive, Microsoft has announced the third-person shooter and television show hybrid, Quantum Break, will release on Xbox One and Windows 10 simultaneously.


Further, pre-ordering the digital copy of the Xbox One version unlocks a free copy for Windows 10.

It will support cross-save, but not cross-platform play. Along with the Windows 10 version, pre-orders will also receive a digital copy of Remedy’s Alan Wake along with DLCs ‘The Signal’ and ‘The Writer’, playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility.

The minimum specs for Quantum Break on Windows 10 are out as well:
