At max settings Quantum Break as some stunning visuals, especially when played at 4K. The problem comes when you realise this amazing looking scenery plays like a slide show when running at the highest settings at this resolution, even on an R9 Fury X. 

Tonight we will be giving this game some intense testing, but right now we thought it would be nice to share with you some first thoughts and some fantastic looking screenshots.  

Please click on the images below to see them at a resolution of 4K.

Quantum Break is a great looking game when cranked up to maximum settings, but sadly even with today's top of the range hardware the game can run at some very low framerates, which is unsurprising given the fact that this game runs at a mere 720p on the Xbox one. 

The PC controls of the game are very bad, with the mouse controls being almost unusable, with the horizontal Axis being inverted on PC for some illogical reason, with no way to fix it. Right now we would recommend that you play this game with a controller.

Below are the system requirements for Quantum break on PC, with the minimum requirements being what we would currently expect to run the game at 720p 30FPS, which is quite disappointing on PC. 

We plan on benchmarking Quantum Break on a selection of hardware tonight in order to give our readers a full performance rundown of this new and demanding PC title.

Just for fun here is a comparison between the games lowest and highest settings at 4K. You have been warned, the lowest settings look awful, your eyes may never forgive you for looking at it.

I have said in the past that Quantum Break looked like it would become a modern day Crysis, being designed for hardware that simply did not exist yet. The game looks great, but you will undoubtedly need to play the game at much lower settings and much lower resolutions than most gamers would expect from their hardware.

Keen to try this game but after a little digging ...

- Searched for it but it's W10 and Microsoft Windows Store only; yeah, good luck with that,
- Full screen windowed mode only, so no FPS overlay to see how bad your fps really is,
- No SLI/Crossfire support,
- G-Sync has problems with stuttering,
- No DSR possible, even if you have the hardware,
- Mouse control borked ON A PC GAME, inverted horizontal axis, are you kidding me?

This game is more like Quantum Broke.

Who the hell is in charge at Microsoft at the moment? Do the developers do any software testing at all?Quote

It's UWP. Not really the devs making the game. All those problems you mentioned are limits of UWP. MS are working on fixing all of them. Even freesync an open standard has issuesQuote

Tbf, it was more designed for apps, not games in the first place. So it is no surprise that it lacked all these features gamers expect. But they are working on it. Hopefully before they release more games too, for example F6 Apex. Otherwise no one will ever buy those games again and then MS will once again abandon PC gamers.Quote

Seems to me that DX12 games fails to deliver so far.
Was not Dx12 suppose to unleash the performance of our PC's?

It's like buying a Rolls Royce with a mowers engine,plywood seats and no windows.Quote
