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 (opens in new tab) listing for Control, the game supports 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Oddly enough, the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) just says the game is Xbox One X Enhanced.
