Updated March 21, 2019: Control is expected to launch in Summer 2019. The Microsoft Store lists the release date at August 27. You can preorder the game for $60 right now on Amazon or the Microsoft Store.
Today, 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 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.
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. 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. The gameplay is similar to Quantum Break so those who played the Microsoft exclusive should feel right at home.
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.
