Control looks like it might be one of the most interesting and actually different action games in years. And the best part was that it hits tomorrow.
Controlling the supernatural
If you’ve been paying attention to Control from developer Remedy, then you already know how great it looks. The game is an action title, yes, but there’s a lot more going on than just the gunplay. Control might be Remedy’s craziest game yet, and that’s really saying something considering Quantum Break.
A heavy supernatural story is the backdrop for this one though. That includes a twisting world that looks like it might be a challenge just to navigate. I mean that in a good way.
Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.
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 regainControl. 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.Control press release
