The news stories below are just a selection of articles written about the highly anticipated Quantum Break, (released 5th April 2016.) In particular, they mention the high quality facial animation and visuals within the game. We are super excited this ground breaking game utilises several hours of DI4D facial performance capture for in-game animation!
“The facial animation is fantastic, putting even games like Until Dawn and The Last of Us to shame. Every eye-roll, furrowed brow and facial tic is replicated in so much detail that it often takes your breath away."
“We can really portray the actors that we’ve hired – they are all awesome actors – And we can bring all of the nuance of their acting into the actual game. Their digital replicas are insanely good. They’ve got the movement of the eyes, the wrinkles. Everything is very, very believable."
...it’s the visuals of Quantum Break that really roped me in right from the get-go – specifically, the facial capture. Every emotion, eye roll, and dimple has been brought over into this game’s world with such precision that I could do little but stand there with my controller in-hand and my jaw flapping wildly in the breeze."

"Credit for this goes to Remedy’s proprietary and pioneering performance capture techniques, which recreate the likenesses and facial expressions of actors with terrific authenticity, especially when viewed up close."
Digital Spy - Quantum Break review: Is this the future of gaming?
“The art style of the game combined with the particle effects, the lightning, the (facial) animations and the intense amount of details, all make Quantum Break one of the most visually impressive games available to date.”
“… there are a lot of cinematics integrated into the gameplay when you really need a lot of quality in facial animation and narrated scenes. At those points, the animations of the actors really looks so good you’ll wonder if you are looking at a real person or not….the human character animations are outstanding.”
“it’s a huge relief to report that Quantum Break leaves uncanny valley in the dust. Remedy’s knack for a glossy TV aesthetic, coupled with amazing motion capture of professional performances, is instantly immersive.”
