Control Release Date Confirmed For PS4, Xbox One, And PC
Control launches sooner than you might think.
On PC, Control joins a growing list of games exclusive to the Epic Games Store--meaning you won't be able to buy the PC version on Steam or anywhere else. Pre-orders are open on all platforms now, starting at $60 for the standard edition in the US. International pricing has not yet been revealed.
Control was first revealed at E3 2018, where it quickly became one of our most anticipated games. It 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.
