Quantum Steam

Posted on 10 Aug 2016 by

After a lukewarm reception on the Windows Store, Remedy have taken the more financially sound decision of bringing Quantum Break to Steam. Coming September 14th, it will now be available both digitally, and in a collector’s Edition retail box (in partnership with Nordic), for a price of $/€39.99. Yes, that’s right, both will cost the same. Which is really, really sweet for those of us (like myself) who are absolute suckers for Collector’s Editions. It’s especially impressive considering what actually comes with the Timeless Collector’s Edition.

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

There’s nothing specifically mentioning a UK release, but with a price listed in Euros, it’s certain we will get one. Most likely at a price somewhere around £30-35. I expect we will have confirmation of this within the next few days, as pre-orders become available, so keep your eyes peeled.

I really hope this will show Microsoft (not Remedy) that selling on Steam is worth it. This has to be a shining example why you don't try to do exclusives on your shoddy platform especially if its a very flawed platform.

Depends how well this sells. I'm expecting a decent return actually. A lot of people seemed keen on it

Very happy to see Microsoft publishing more games on Steam. Dead Rising 4 is another one. Maybe Forza and Gears of War will follow too.
