Control is the latest game from Remedy Entertainment, previously known only by it’s code name P7 and is being published by 505 Games. The game is a third person shooter and narrative adventure game similar to the developers previous works Quantum Break, Alan Wake and Max Payne with supernatural abilities which from the trailer looks like telekinesis.
The game was revealed at Sony’s E3 2018 Media Showcase along with the debut trailer below. The following information has since been sent to me via a press release containing some more plot details and information about the gameplay.
Here is the official description for the game’s plot, characters and setting:
“After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.”
There is also a few quotes from the developers about the game:
“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 launch in 2019 on Xbox One, PS4 & PC. You can find more information on the game’s official website at http://www.controlgame.com/
