Remedy Entertainment's Sam Lake appeared on this year's VGX to show off the first gameplay video for Xbox One-exclusive Quantum Break. The video shows off more of the game's time anomolies, as well as new dynamic cover-based shooting mechanics. Lake adds that there are numerous time-based powers to master, which Lake says are inspired by games like Max Payne.

"This is absolutely an action game," said Remedy's Oskari Hakkinen. "Those folks out there that have played Remedy Games before, Max Payne and Alan Wake, know that we do try to push the envelope in storytelling and video games, but we do that in an action game environment. So this is definitely hands-on action game with all those cinematic moments, big effects, and whatnot."

We'd previously seen the cinematic side of Quantum Break, as the story revolves around Joyce and Wilder trying to overcome the evil corporation, Monarch. Remedy reiterated on the show that Quantum Break is expected to release in early 2014.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      This looks neat. I wish they showed more gameplay other than just "your character can crouch behind crates and shoot someone in the face." It's hard to tell how this plays for the video.

      This game will probably be pretty good

      Literally, the grayest, brownest game I've ever seen in my entire life. No buys for you, ugly game!
