Control (PC/PS4/Xbox One)



  • More details about the AWE expansion:

    • It will feature the Investigations Sector, where a bunch of evidence of AWEs are stored until a mysterious creature messed things up and the sector got sealed off. Jesse will explore the various AWEs there, including the one from Bright Falls, in order to eliminate this creature.
    • There's a new weapon (basically a sticky grenade launcher), and a new enemy type (a flying dude with a shotgun).
    • The most interesting part: The Remedy Connected Universe.

    "Over the years, we have included Easter eggs in our games that related some of Remedy’s games to each other, as you have seen if you played Control… but what if they were not all just Easter eggs? What if there’s actually been a plan in place for over a decade on how some of our games are connected – a Remedy Connected Universe, if you will – and payoff for certain things is… down the line?

    Also, a world premiere of the expansion is coming soon.



  • Wait so we will actually get to go to Bright Falls?



  • So Control's not getting a free upgrade to PS5 and XSX. Instead, 505 Games announces that there will be an Ultimate Edition of the game, which includes all of the DLCs and also the PS5/XSX upgrade.

  • On the one hand that sucks. On the other I'm kinda ok buying it again as I got the game super cheap (and early)



  • Oh sweet it is also going to release on Steam soon, I'm not hardcore against Epic but I do prefer staying with just Steam and GoG for my PC games so I was hoping it would come out soon on one of those.



  • Is this a case where I can buy the DLC if I've already purchased the base game and will automatically own the Ultimate Edition, or am I required to buy the base game again through this specific edition to own the upgradable copy?


  • Banned

    If the Ultimate Edition is just the base game and DLC added into one and anybody who owns both gets the next gen upgrade, awesome.
    If you have to buy it even if you own everything, literally suck my balls 505 Games.



  • @el-shmiablo
    I believe you have to get the Ultimate Edition as a separate purchase, at least the official press release makes it sound that way.



  • I think this is a stretch but I think there's a Splinter Cell cameo/ Easter egg in the new DLC.
    Found a audio log from a Agent Fischer, talking about using fiber optics to watch something in the motel, and I think was played by Michael Ironside.



  • Signing onto PSN tonight to claim the PS5 version of Control. Definitely had a lot of problems with the launch version of this game on PS4 Pro: unforgivable bugs, screen tear, washed out graphics, choppy frame rate, no HDR. Again, not to sound like a broken record, but Control wasn't Cyberpunk bad, but the console version at launch should've dropped like 2 review points because it was so glitchy.

    I liked the game but that unfinished version of the game probably tainted my perspective. I want to give it it's fair shake and it looks like the PS5 version is on par with the RTX 20 and 30 series PC versions. Not the first time unideal circumstances tainted my perspective of a game too. Played God of War 2018 in two sittings: 14 hours, then 3 hours. That game was a blur and I barely remember anything and I don't recall liking it too too much.

    Both games need their fair shake again on PS5 (when I get one knocks on wood T O D A Y)!
