With this offer now on the table, a good chunk of people interested in Control should have been able to access it at no extra cost within the last year or so. Remedy and publisher 505 Games partnered with Sony to release Control: Ultimate Edition as a PS Plus title for PlayStation 5 owners back in February, for example. The Oldest House-set caper additionally appeared on Xbox Game Pass for PC in January. Who knows what free feed it will end up on next?
Control hit stores in 2019, dropping players into the role of Jesse Faden, a young woman looking for clues about her brother’s mysterious disappearance. What she stumbles across is a world of intrigue involving a secret government organization that combats supernatural forces. The crew at Remedy did more than craft an action-packed experience bolstered by a compelling narrative. In exploring the Oldest House, players can find evidence of Alan Wake’s existence in the same universe, an astonishing reveal that Remedy expanded upon in Control’s AWE DLC.
Control is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
