From the creators behind such classics as Max Payne and Alan Wake, comes a brand new third-person action-adventure game called Control, which looks to combine gunplay with supernatural abilities. Let’s introduce you to the Federal Bureau of Control!
Remedy Entertainment revealed Control at the Sony E3 briefing as its “most ambitious game yet”, showcasing a complex sandbox style, gameplay driven experience built on the Northlight engine. In it, you’ll be thrown into a unique and ever-changing world that puts our familiar reality side by side with the weird and unexplainable. It all takes place after a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat and the new Director, Jesse Faden – who you’ll play the role of – has to try and regain control of, well, Control. To do this, you must master the supernatural abilities as well as get to grips with the reactive environments, whilst fighting through the deep and mysterious world.
“Control represents a new exciting chapter for us, it redefines what a Remedy game is. It shows off our unique ability to build compelling worlds while providing a new player-driven way to experience them,” said Mikael Kasurinen, game director of Control. “A key focus for Remedy has been to provide more agency through gameplay and allow our audience to experience the story of the world at their own pace”
“From our first meetings with Remedy we’ve been inspired by the vision and scope of Control, and we are proud to help them bring this game to life and get it into the hands of players,” said Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games. “We believe this is going to be another major hit for both our companies, on a bigger scale than ever before.”
Control will eventually arrive on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2019, but for now, just settle down with the first official trailer!
