Quantum Break for Xbox One receiving update today

A title update addresses bugs and glitches on the console version, but Windows users will need to hang tight a little longer.


Remedy and Microsoft are preparing a title update for Quantum Break on Xbox One to fix several nagging issues. Some, such as a correction for game assets disappearing if and when players backtrack, are general. Others, such as a taxi failing to appear in the game's introduction, are more specific.

The title update will be deployed later today.

Remedy and Microsoft are aware of these and other issues dogging the Windows version of the game, but do not yet have a patch ready.

      That is nice that they are doing something to fix the game rather than nothing. But man the PC version is by far the worst PC port in history that I have ever played its freaking terrible. Word of warning to Shack don't bother buying the PC version what ever you do.

      My respect for Remedy has been totally flushed down the toilet :( , I was looking forward to this game hard core.

      If you wanted QB on PC just go buy Alan Wake on GOG https://www.gog.com/game/alan_wake and call it a day.

        This is really sad to hear. Remedy is such a good dev too. MS has a tight grip on their sack and won't let them do shit the right way

          Yeah man :( it sucks, I bet its MS doing it I can't see how any dev especially if they have PC gamers in their team would be ok with releasing it the way it is. Its basically 100% the Xbox One code which means the FOV is worst I have ever seen(makes me sick in 2 minutes) and to top it all off they do this insane rendering thing where if you select 1080p it actually renders it 2/3rds of what it is set, like WTF? So 1080p looks like complete ass like really bad, PS2 quality.

          Seriously official technical comment : "the buffers used to construct the image are always 2/3rds of the set resolution, i.e. in 2560x1440 they would be 1706x960"

          There is so much other shit too like no exit in the menu you have to alt F4 and another one that really bothers me and I find insulting if you unplug your internet and try to play the game in offline mode it goes into [Pirated mode] no seriously and puts a pirate patch on the main characters eye and jacks up some other stuff. They put this in for legit software pirates but never even tested un plugging the internet for legit customers it all just makes me really sad and pissed off :(. I don't even want to talk about it anymore...

          Anyways that new Deus Ex: Mankind Divided trailer is so boss I knew you be happy about that, I can't wait.

      Nice that they are patching it, but I stopped playing this hot mess a while ago.
