Here’s Alan Wake and Max Payne playing Quantum Break

Quantum Break isn’t out for a few days yet, but it makes sense that some people get access before others. There’s reviewers (including us), of course, but what about main characters from previous games?

Developer Remedy Entertainment posted a video of two of their former protagonists playing their new game.

Creative Director at Remedy, Sam Lake, was the face of the original Max Payne character model before he got an overhaul in the sequel, while Finnish actor Ilkka Villi gave his face to the titular character in Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. Neither of the two talk during the video, because their voices were provided by American actors, but it’s fun to see two familiar faces together.

April Fools’ Day can be a frustrating day as we wade through actual and pretend news, but funny fan service like this, something Remedy has always excelled at, is what makes the day worth waking up for.
