Microsoft has announced that it will start to distribute "hit action game" Quantum Break to Windows PCs via the popular Steam Store starting from 14th September. Simultaneously the firm will launch a premium packaged 'Timeless Collector's Edition' of the game to retailers, at the same price of EUR/USD 39.99.

Quantum Break on Steam and Windows 7 or newer

You can only currently purchase the digital edition of Quantum Break via the Windows Store and Xbox Store. However, from 14th September Microsoft says that Quantum Break will be made available "to more gamers across a number of operating systems when it hits Steam next month".

At the time of writing only Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs can play the game so what other OSes will it be open to? According to a Tweet from developer Remedy, it will be playable on systems running Windows 7 and up. A 64-bit version of Windows is still required.

Quantum Break: Timeless Collector's Edition

Moving from digital to physical retail, a special edition of Quantum Break is coming to those who like to buy boxed software. The Quantum Break: Timeless Collector's Edition will also launch on 14th Sept and include all the latest updates for the best experience right out of the box. The following goodies are included in the premium packaged collector's edition:

  • 5 Game Discs (one-time Steam key redemption required)
  • Making of Blu-Ray
  • Making of Book
  • 1 Soundtrack CD (Audio-CD)
  • 2 Posters
  • Quick Start Guide

Quantum Break is a sci-fi action adventure third person shooter game. It was originally released for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows 10 / DirectX 12 on 5th April 2016. It provided the best opening weekend sales for a new Microsoft IP in the history of the Xbox One, and topped the UK's all-formats chart in its debut week.

Guess they suddenly want to sell their game… weird.
And they said it couldn't be done…

Well, actually they probably never quite did say it couldn't be done, but MS *did* try to use Win10 as a dongle for the game. Apparently, that backfired a bit.

True however mediocre reviews didn't help either! Still far more tempting to buy on steam when its cheap than touching Windows store!
Amazing how they went back to support Windows 7 and 8. So much for all the hoopla about Windows 10…
I suppose there's no point them being stubborn about it. They tried a tactic, it didn't work so they adapt - makes sense.

Maybe we'll get GOW next
