We are less than a month away from the launch of Remedy’s next game, Control, and a new trailer has been released that brings a rather creepy new character who has a story to tell.
The game places you in the shoes of Jesse Faden and after a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new Director struggling to regain, ahem, control. Remedy say the game will “challenge you to master the combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.”
“Control is Jesse Faden’s story and her personal search for answers as she grows into the role of the Director,” they add, “The world of Control has its own story, as do the allies Jesse meets along the way. Jesse works with other Bureau agents and discovers strange experiments and secrets.”
Jesse has access to weapons that far exceed the limits of traditional weapons, with a lot of her firepower coming from a shape-shifting gun that can change from revolver to machine. She also has access to powers icluding a shield to protect herself, or an ability called ‘seize’ which forces enemies to join her side and fight the other Hiss.
Stefan had some hands-on time with Control earlier this year and said, “It’s going to be fascinating seeing Control come together ahead of its launch later this year. There’s a very different structure to the world you can explore, asking you to become more powerful and revisit areas to find new paths to follow. Even so, This is a game that builds on what Remedy have done so well over their last few releases, combining supernatural elements with great visual flair..”
Control will be hitting the shelves and digital stores on August 27th on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The PC version will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.
