Quantum Break gets a villain-focused live-action trailer

With just a week to go before the release of Quantum Break, Microsoft has posted a new live-action trailer for the time-based action game coming to the Xbox One and Windows 10. The trailer focuses on Quantum Break's villains, who are portrayed by Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) and Lance Reddick (Fringe) in the game developed by Remedy.

One interesting feature about Quantum Break has also come to light. Engadget reports that the game has an option to turn off its licensed music. Remedy added this small option so that "Let's Play" videos on YouTube and Twitch can show the game without running into any pesky copyright infringement issues:

It's something that came after the studio got a lot of fan feedback that their Let's Play videos of the team's previous game, Alan Wake, resulted in the clips being pulled from YouTube. "Streaming and YouTube especially have become such an essential part of gaming culture these days," Remedy's Head of Media and Partners Thomas Puha told Engadget via email. "At a very late stage in the development of Quantum Break, we came up with the idea of giving the option to disable licensed music to make life a bit easier for everyone wanting to share their Quantum Break experience."

Quantum Break is due for release on April 5. As a reminder, people who pre-order the Xbox One version will get a code to download the Windows 10 port for free when it becomes available in the Windows Store.
