Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.
After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.
Players eager to unlock the secrets of the enigmatic Oldest House are now able to pre-order Control. Those who pre-order the base game ($59.99) will receive two exclusive in-game items; the Tactical Response Gear outfit for Jesse and a Crafting Resources Pack. Purchasers who choose the base game for PlayStation 4 will also receive additional launch day rewards including Rare Service Weapon and Player mods, the Astral Dive suit for Jesse and two themes showcasing the unique world of Control.
Also available for pre-order are the physical retail-exclusive Retail Deluxe Edition ($69.99) for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with collectible FuturePak Exclusive Metal Packaging and limited-edition art cards, and the PlayStation 4 Digital Deluxe Edition ($79.99), which includes all of the content from the PlayStation 4 base version as well as an extra side mission, “Isolation” and an additional exclusive outfit, Jesse’s Urban Response Gear. This version will also come with two Expansion packs, “The Foundation” and “AWE” (available at a later date following launch). Each pack will contain new locations, story content, side missions and mods. Full details of the pre-order options can be found on the game’s website.
Following its announcement as Game Informer’s April 2019 cover title, 505 Games and Remedy revealed a new hands-on demo of the game to select press at the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) last week. Fans will have their first opportunity to try the game at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) East in Boston, MA from Thursday, March 28 to Sunday, March 31 in the Sony America booth.
Control will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 27, 2019. To register for more information and regular updates, please visit www.controlgame.com.
