Recently, Remedy Entertainment showed gameplay from 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 next year. 505 Games confirmed that the title will be enhanced for Xbox One X. It's unclear what benefits the PlayStation 4 Pro will receive at this point.
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. The game will challenge you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts, and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world. Those who played Quantum Break should feel right at home.
Today, Remedy released a new trailer which showcases the world. Right now we're gawking at the visuals, but there is some concern of the studio's linear storytelling heritage. In a world where even titles like God of War are going semi-open world, here's hoping Control appeals to the modern gamer.
The title is expected to launch in 2019, but no concrete release date was provided. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the game. Hopefully Control will be a polished experience and deliver a compelling story. Remedy is known for ending games on cliffhangers so let's pray that isn't the case with this one.
