Quantum Break, the new time-bending shooter by Remedy Entertainment, has a funny easter egg for anyone that pirates the game.
As spotted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun, the developer has hidden a joke within Quantum Break meant exclusively for pirates. If Quantum Break detects that players have stolen their copy of the game, it will outfit the main character, Jack Joyce, with an eyepatch. Well played, Remedy Entertainment!
Take a look below:
Remedy’s previous game, Alan Wake, had a similar easter egg.
Jack looks like a pirate.
DRM might’ve accidentally triggered. Make sure you’ve logged into your Microsoft account before starting the game (thanks NeoGAF!).
What this means, in effect, is that players can don the eyepatch without having to pirate the game. You know, if you’re curious about it.
