We also get a list of features you can expect from the game:
- Unreal Engine 5 Features:
- Global Illumination provides a striking visual experience of lifelike shadows, reflections, and impressive lighting in an extremely dark environment.
- Nanite utilized to increase geometric detail where applicable.
- Soundscape used to create more immersive and realistic sounding environments.
- PS5 in game features:
- Haptic Feedback: Experience a Firefighter’s sensation in your hands. Intensity of a backdraft door, using the K12 saw, or feeling the flames of a roaring fire.
- Adaptive Triggers: Feel the tension of a Firefighter’s tools and weapons as they resist, vibrate, and fight back with every action or while administering CPR.
- Controller Microphone: Utilize the controller microphone to deliver breaths during CPR.
- SSD: Experience near instant loading times for seamless gameplay.
- 3D Audio: Immerse yourself in the chilling sounds coming from every direction as you revel in the provocative soundtrack which enhances the terror and excitement of Quantum Error.
Incidentally, yesterday the developer mentioned on X (formerly Twitter) that the game will be a fully complete release and won't feature any microtransactions, or any platform-exclusive content.
While, at the moment, Quantum Error will be released only for PS5. Xbox Series X|S and PC versions are also planned, but the developers have provided nonspecific information on when they'll come. Recently, Teamkill Media has officially scrapped the PS4 version (the game was originally announced for PS5 and PS4 a few years ago), as it would require too much downgrading in order to even work.
If you'd like to see more about the game, you can enjoy the most recent and extensive gameplay released a couple of weeks ago, a previous gameplay trailer, another teasing an environment from the game, one showing a cinematic from the beginning of the story, one showcasing the fact that you can play in third-person despite the game being initially announced as an FPS, and one showing another cinematic cutscene.
Quantum Error has been developed in Unreal Engine 5 by a small indie team based in Kalispell, MT, founded by four brothers in 2016. If the name Teamkill Media doesn't ring a bell, they previously developed Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris, which was released in 2019.
