Control is a supernatural third-person action-adventure that takes place in a universe similar to the one in Quantum Break. After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new director struggling to regain control. Instead of taking place in a science fiction setting, Control explores mysticism in a modern light.
Earlier in 2019, it was revealed that due to marketing arrangements between 505 Games and Sony, the PlayStation 4 (PS4) version of Control will feature platform-exclusive content. However, this isn't just limited to cosmetic items, with the PS4-exclusive "Digital Deluxe Edition" packing the season pass, exclusive mission, and more. The PS4 version also grants early access to the game's two expansion packs prior Xbox One, although the duration of this exclusive period is unclear. The deal is now gaining traction on the Xbox One Reddit, with console owners seemingly disappointed by the practice.
As you can see from the image provided by developer Remedy Entertainment and publisher 505 Games, the Xbox One lacks a Digital Deluxe Edition.
The PS4 version gets in-game advantages like rare mods. It's unclear how beneficial these items will be, but further divides the two version's content offerings.
While exclusive content has existed for generations, Control's implementation brings a fully dedicated edition for those on PS4. Paired with exclusive bonuses and early access to updates, it's something to consider as its August 27, 2019, release approaches.
