#ExploreTheBreak at Quantum Burger in Downtown Toronto
Or you can Break it down online, too.
Oh, how I wish I’d heard of this sooner!
If you follow my work over on PoisonMushroom.Org (you can always see what’s going on over there by glimpsing the sidebar here), then you know that it’s no secret that I’m a lover of fast food (taken in moderation, of course). So finding out that Microsoft had set up a “Quantum Burger” restaurant in downtown Toronto to promote the release of Quantum Break that was set to close before I even knew about it was a shot to the heart.
Fortunately, there’s still time to visit the revamped Queen Street West-Spadina Avenue Hero Burger location, as it will be open until 9pm on Friday, April 8th and Saturday, April 9th. You can’t order any food there, unfortunately (there are apparently McDonald’s and A&W nearby if you’re left with a craving, though), but you can see what it’s like to have time break around you — just like in the game — by visiting the location and seeing the chaos frozen in mid-frame.
I’m aiming to head there myself on Saturday if all goes well, but for those who can’t make it, you can check it out on YouTube with a special 360 degree video (or should that be “Xbox 360 degree video”? No, no it should not… if only because the game is only available on Xbox One and Windows 10). Here’s the latest such video from the Xbox Canada YouTube channel:
By viewing the videos, you’ll not only get a taste of the experience the developers at Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft Studios are trying to deliver in Quantum Break, but you can also participate in a contest for a chance to win one of two prize packages featuring a custom Quantum Break Xbox One console, controller, and game.
Pretty snazzy, huh? But can you find the hidden clues while time remains frozen? The third video will be posted on Sunday, April 10th, and the contest runs until 11:59pm EST on April 20th, 2016. Full rules are provided in the link above.
