Junction

The choices of Junction 1: Hardline/PR.

"My powers grew as the Chronon Syndrome worsened. I could choose a path that would become the actual future. But it wasn't optional. The moment wouldn't end until I made up my mind."
—Paul Serene[1]

Junctions Impacts (also known as Junctions and Junction Points) gameplay interludes between the four acts in Quantum Break. Players take control of antagonist Paul Serene as he makes a choice between the possible outcomes of the future.

GameplayEdit

"The Junction Power reveals two potential futures. Your decision at each Junction point will steer the stories of both the game and the live action show. Choose wisely."
—Official Description[1]

Junction Impacts are breaks between the first four acts of Quantum Break’s narrative. As Paul Serene, players are presented with branching narrative points within the story that will alter certain events depending on the choices the player makes, but does not radically change the overarching plot itself.

During Junction Points, players will be required to position themselves in a specific area to trigger the Junction of the level. Pressing XboxOne Y triggers the preface of the Junction and the player will be prompted to preview the two options by holding down XboxOne LT or XboxOne RT. Afterward their choice is finalized by holding down the XboxOne LB or XboxOne RB.

Afterward, the statistics of each Junction's choice is presented, separated between the statistics of the user and their core community of online friends and users outside their circle.

DevelopmentEdit

Remedy Entertainment's core goal with Quantum Break was to create an interactive story game that was asked of them from Microsoft Studios.[2]

One of the earliest gameplay concepts that was retained for the final version of the game, was the idea of "Junctions". Junction gameplay was originally meant to take place in the past in an earlier concept of the story. At the time that there were four player characters, Junctions that altered the past would effect the present and create changes.

If the player did not like the consequences of their choices, they would be able to return to the past gameplay segment and revert the changes.[2] Eventually, Remedy Entertainment felt the idea behind the original Junction concept was too confusing and would create conflict with the established rules of their time travel story (closed loops and not being able to change the past).[2]

Paul Serene, the antagonist of the game, was never a playable character until much later on the game's development.[3] Remedy scrapped the idea of four characters using the Junction and regulated Paul to the only character with the power to effect change in the story, making him the conduit between the game and the television series.[3]
