Control Ultimate Edition will be available from February on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S

Remedy has confirmed that Control Ultimate Edition will be available from February 2nd on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. That release date is for the digital release, while the physical release will follow a month later on March 2nd. Alongside this news, Remedy released a clip of Control running on PS5, showing both the Performance mode and Graphics mode. In Performance mode Control will run at 60fps while in Graphics mode that will go down to 30fps but include ray tracing.


Control Ultimate Edition is already available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This version of the game includes all of the DLC content from the expansion pass including The Foundation and AWE. The Control Ultimate Edition release was announced back in August and immediately courted controversy as it was revealed that buying this new version of the game would be the only way to get an upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X for no extra cost. This being despite there being no difference in content between the Deluxe Edition and the Ultimate Edition, aside from the free next gen upgrade. 505 Games came back and tried to explain why they had to create a new version and could not offer either free or paid upgrades, but this only really stirred up the hornets nest further.

Either way, the game is fantastic. In our Control review, I wrote:

Control is one of the best story-focused single player games in years. Its unique mix of surrealism, sci-fi and mystery draws you in, but doesn’t give everything away, and the combat is fantastically varied and provides just enough challenge. A culmination of everything that went before, Control is Remedy’s magnum opus.
