Recently, Remedy Entertainment showed a gameplay trailer of Control at the PlayStation E3 2018 media 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 but it's unclear what those benefits might entail.

While the trailer teased some gameplay, it didn't give us a better look at the mechanics. Luckily, an interview after the PlayStation E3 2018 briefing provided a lot of answers. Control definitely looks like an evolution of Quantum Break and hopefully it'll be more successful than the latter. The gameplay is very similar, but instead of time-manipulation powers you're blessed with telekinesis.

According to the developer, 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.

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 here's hoping that it isn't the case with this one.
