Quantum Break developer Remedy Interactive has shown off the first gameplay footage of the Xbox One exclusive during tonight's VGX Awards.

Remedy also showed off a new iOS project named Agents of Storm. It's a 3D reverse tower defense title where you must attack bases on an island. Your mission is to build your base, build up a fleet and then go to war.

But back to Quantum Break, Remedy's sci-fi adventure where time is "broken" after a university experiment goes drastically wrong.

Like any good superhero tale, students Jack and Beth gain wacky time-manipulation powers - both will be playable within the game.

There's an evil corporation to fight too, which goes by the name of Monarch. It's CEO - the game's main bad guy - is playable too.

Fresh gameplay clips shown tonight during the VGX Awards showed off the game's cover mechanics (yay, low walls) and shooting.

It'll be a cross between the story-driven gameplay of Alan Wake and the stylised action of Max Payne, Remedy said, making it a combination of past projects.
