'Control' (ALL) Adds Expeditions Mode, Teases The Foundation DLC - Trailer

Control (formerly known as P7) is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.

Control is set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and explainable.

Welcome to the Federal Bureau of Control

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.

A free December update for Control has been released and contains the new Expeditions mode, a challenging combat experience for players who have completed the main campaign.

Expeditions expand Jesse’s story, taking her to new areas of the Threshold, each with its own unique challenges for her to overcome. Players who successfully complete Expeditions will be rewarded with rare mods and powerful crafting materials unique to the mode, as well as a new outfit for Jesse.

Beginning today, players who have completed the main story mission “My Brother’s Keeper” in Control can use the mysterious Jukebox locked away in a room in Central Executive to access Expeditions. By obtaining Jukebox Tokens, players will be able to hear the song that has the power to transport Jesse into a different dimension.

The new trailer gives players a first look at Expeditions in a new trailer, as well a tease of The Foundation DLC, coming on March 26, 2020.

Award-winning composer Martin Stig Andersen (INSIDE, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus) and BAFTA-nominated composer Petri Alanko (Alan Wake, Quantum Break) are creating the score for supernatural action-adventure game Control.  

Combining Andersen’s experience with creating eerie compositions with Alanko’s unique blend of orchestral and electronic arrangements, the renowned duo is joining forces to form an otherworldly soundscape for Control’s mysterious world. Control’s score is being carefully crafted to back an ever-changing world that juxtaposes reality with the unexplainable. Andersen and Alanko’s scores will mirror Control’s dynamic gameplay elements by evolving around the game’s moments of stirring surrealism and fierce action.

Key Features:

  • WORLD WITHIN A LOCATION: Explore diverse environments and shifting architecture in a deep unpredictable world, set within a sprawling New York building.
  • FLEXIBLE AND SUPERNATURAL COMBAT SYSTEM: Define your playstyle by integrating supernatural abilities, upgrades, and modifiable loadouts.
  • REACTIVE ENVIRONMENTS: Harness dynamic environmental destruction for exciting combat possibilities and master complex rituals to alter your surroundings.
  • REALITY MEETS THE UNEXPLAINABLE: Dive into a dark and brutalist-inspired world where daily reality has been corrupted by an otherworldly force.

Control is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Epic Games Store).
