Remedy's Control gets DLC roadmap and a major tease for its final expansion
Remedy lays out the planned DLC content for Control over the next year - and teases something pretty incredible for longtime Remedy fans.
What you need to know
- Control is the latest game from Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games.
- Today, Remedy released the roadmap for upcoming DLC, including photo mode and two expansions.
- The second expansion is teasing something massive than fans of Remedy will appreciate.
- Control is currently available at Amazon for $50 (opens in new tab) on Xbox One.
Control released back in August but Remedy Entertainment is already talking about what fans can look forward to next. Yesterday, Remedy shared the patch notes for a comprehensive update aimed at fixing the issues players are having with the map, as well as glitches and frame-rate problems. Today, Remedy released the content roadmap for Control, talking about what is coming and the order in which it is coming.
First up is Photo Mode, which will be free for all players. It's aimed to arrive sometime in Fall 2019. After that is a new game mode called Expeditions. This is being described as a challenging, endgame mode that will require all your skills and the best gear to face as you explore the Formation. This will also be free and is currently set to release in December 2019.
Then we have the paid expansions. The first, titled The Foundation, tasks Jesse Faden with exploring beneath the Bureau. Also, players should "Expect things to get weird." This is aimed for arrival in early 2020. The second paid expansion is AWE - which stands for Altered World Event. Jesse will be checking out the Investigations Sector, where Altered World Events are studied. This expansion is aiming for release in mid-2020. While it sounds interesting, it's the image for the expansion that makes things really interesting.
If you haven't beaten the game, I recommend not looking at the image, as there are some neat teasers for this in the collectibles. Have you completed it, or you're just too curious? Alright, proceed.
Yeah, that's Alan Wake in the top half of the image. Does this mean that AWE also stands for Alan Wake Expansion? If so, I imagine Alan Wake fans (and I am one) will be extremely happy. We'll provide more updates on the exact timing for each of these DLCs.
The Oldest House
Control tasks players with entering the Oldest House as Jesse Faden, the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, managers of the unnverving and weird artifacts of the world.

I just got 1000/1000 gamerscore in this tonight, I'm going to trade it in towards The Surge 2. I'll probably pick it up again cheap down the track to play these expansions.
And yet I see no expansion pass for the dlc on the Microsoft store
Why does this article on a Microsoft-oriented site, list the price and a link for the PlayStation edition? It's fine that the game is available on both platforms, I'd just expect Windows Central to focus on the Xbox edition. It is also available and is currently $1 cheaper than the PS4 version: https://www.amazon.com/Control-Xbox-One/dp/B07DPM9XV7?tag=hawk-future-20...
