Xbox One title Quantum Break will also be released on PC, and both versions will launch on April 5, developer Remedy Entertainment and publisher Microsoft have confirmed.

During a recent press trip where the Windows edition was confirmed, Remedy did not offer any details on the port. It is unclear whether the PC game was developed in-house at the Finnish studio, or if another developer was involved.

The Quantum Break website explains that people who pre-order the digital version of Quantum Break for Xbox One will get a free copy of the Windows 10 edition. This offer expires April 4. The game supports saves across Xbox One and PC, but there is no cross-platform play. According to the studio it is also making the PC version in-house.

Quantum Break's minimum and recommended specs have also been released.

Remedy Entertainment

Quantum Break's PC edition is the latest in Microsoft's wider push to expand its games across console and PC. Games currently in development for both platforms includes ReCore, Sea of Thieves and Fable Legends.

Similarly, information on performance and how it compares to the Xbox One version has not been divulged. GameSpot recently attended the studio for a hands-on with the game; the version available to press was running on Xbox One. You can read our new preview of Quantum Break here.

As part of the announcement, Remedy also revealed the Xbox One version will include a full game download of Remedy's last game, Alan Wake, along with its two DLC (downloadable content) add-ons: The Signal and The Writer.

Those who pre-order the Xbox One version at participating retailers will also get access to Alan Wake's American Nightmare, a standalone expansion that was released for the Xbox 360 two years after the original game.

Remedy Entertainment

Microsoft will also ship a Quantum Break Xbox One bundle, which will contain a white Xbox One that has a 500 GB hard drive capacity, Quantum Break, and Alan Wake.

Quantum Break was originally scheduled to launch in 2015. However, it was later delayed and is now due to arrive in April 2016. The game story is told across the game and a TV show, the latter of which stars Shawn Ashmore of the "X-Men" saga and Dominic Monaghan from "The Lord of the Rings."
