Microsoft Studios brings us yet again another highly anticipated third-person video game, "Quantum Break" for Xbox One. Release date, plot, gameplay and other updated news have been revealed online, including a possible TV series based on the game?

Remedy Entertainment known for its creation the "Max Payne" and "Alan Wake" video game franchise comes together with Microsoft Studios in the upcoming Xbox One game, "Quantum Break". Release date has also been revealed during Gamescom.

Upon the "Quantum Break" release date, fans will experience a story "a time-travel experiment at a research facility that goes horribly wrong. Shortly afterwards, Joyce discovers he has the ability to manipulate time in his immediate vicinity. Most people would revel in this demigod-like power, but Joyce soon learns that time itself is splintering and breaking and will eventually end if he doesn't find a way to reverse the experiment's affects. It's not clear how he'll be able to do this, but Joyce soon learns that operatives from Monarch Solutions are on his trail and their plans don't seem to require him having a pulse," reported The Guardian.

Critics have compared the gameplay and story as similar to Remedy Entertainment's "Alan Wake" and "Max Payne". In the same report as above, the comparison is explained as "Quantum Break is very similar to both Alan Wake and the Max Payne games in that it essentially plays like a pop-and-cover third-person shooter with some mechanics that allow players to bend reality somewhat. Joyce's abilities to manipulate time come in quite handy when faced with a corridor filled with bad guys; he can slow time in his vicinity and thus move in a blur to flank his enemies, or he can stop the bullets from their guns in mid-air and then release them in a spray."

Apart from the "Quantum Break" release date announcement in Gamescon, it has also been revealed that the video game will come with a companion TV series. According to Remedy in an interview with The Verge, "how you play the game impacts the show, and the show informs how you play the game."

"Quantum Break" release date has been set on September 2015.
