Many months ago, Remedy Entertainment showed a gameplay trailer of Control at the PlayStation E3 2018 event. The game uses the same engine as Quantum Break and is coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 in a few months. 505 Games confirmed that the title will be enhanced for Xbox One X and is expected to launch on August 27.

Today, the developer released a new trailer for the game which details the story. You're the last line of defense as you rush to contain a supernatural threat in a cursed building. While the plot seems simple, it definitely seems focused. Hopefully, it'll be an improvement over Quantum Break which failed to tell a cohesive and contained story according to critics.

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.

According to an Amazon listing for Control, the game supports 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Oddly enough, the Microsoft Store just says the game is Xbox One X Enhanced.
