Control Release Date Announced For PS4, Xbox One, And PC

Alan Wake and Quantum Break developer Remedy has confirmed the release date of its newest project, Control. The action-adventure title will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 27.

Remedy confirmed the news to Eurogamer following rumors sparked by a leaked Xbox Store listing. The game was first revealed at E3 2018, where it quickly became one of our most anticipated games.

Control stars Jesse Faden, a woman with supernatural abilities. At the game’s start, Jesse breaks into the Federal Bureau of Control–a fictional government agency that researches ways to explain and exploit paranormal phenomenon–in order to discover the truth about the origin of her powers. Her infiltration, however, runs into a snag, and she’s suddenly thrust into a fight to protect the Bureau as its new director.

Jesse’s powerful supernatural abilities allow her to wield telekinesis to rip apart the environment, or lift herself up and fly through the air. She can also seize the minds of others, bending them to her will and forcing them to fight alongside her.

Game director Mikael Kasurinen compared the atmosphere of Control to the 2018 movie Annihilation, while Remedy creative director Sam Lake loves that Control gives him the freedom to be weird again. For more, check out some Control gameplay from E3 2018 above.
