Control Will Get An Improved Map And The Foundation DLC This Month
It'll all come packaged in a Control update coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Developer Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that its surreal action-adventure game Control will get some new content and improvement sometime this month on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The studio's communications director Thomas Puha tweeted that Remedy will drop The Foundation DLC at some point this March. With that expansion's launch, which is part of the game's $25 Season Pass, Remedy will also implement some quality-of-life improvements to enhance Control's gameplay. These improvements include more tweaks to the maligned map and "some other requested" changes. Puha provided no concrete date for when to expect these adjustments, but he did say Remedy will "show and talk about it soon."
The Foundation will be Control's first major expansion and follows December 2019's Expeditions DLC. Revealed as part of Control's roadmap, The Foundation will see Jesse Faden descend beneath the Bureau to restore order the Oldest House. The Foundation originally had a vague "early 2020" date attached to it and will be followed-up by Control's second expansion, AWE, in mid-2020. It seems the AWE DLC may connect Control to one of Remedy's most popular games, 2010's Alan Wake.
The Foundation is coming this month, we will show and talk about it soon. @ControlRemedy will also get is March update with that which will have things like an improved map and some other requested quality of life improvements. Bummed about not going to GDC and SXSW tho 😭— Thomas Puha (@RiotRMD) March 5, 2020
Control has seen a mountain of success since it launched in August 2019 and that doesn't look to be stopping soon, as the game secured 11 nominations at this year's BAFTA Games Awards. It's also available to play on PlayStation 4 through PS Now, Sony's game streaming service. And it seems the writer of Star Wars: Rogue One is more than interested in making a film based on Control.
In other Remedy Entertainment news, the studio confirmed it has three games in development, with two of them recently entering pre-production. One particular in particular remains unannounced, but all three will run on the studio's in-house Northlight game engine, the same one first used in 2016's Quantum Break and seen in Control.
