A recent listing on the Microsoft Store pointed to Remedy Entertainment’s Control, the surreal Metroidvania shooter, releasing in August. In an official capacity, we’ve only heard the developer talk about a Summer release window. However, Game Informer has since confirmed with the studio that Control is indeed out on August 27th.
Arriving for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, Control sees newly appointed Federal Bureau of Control director Jesse Faden battling a mysterious supernatural threat. She must make her ways through the halls of the Oldest House, the FBC’s HQ, and attempt to piece together the mystery behind the invaders named Hiss. To assist her, Faden will wield a multi-purpose sidearm called the Service Weapon.
The PC version of Control was recently announced to be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store. That means it will only be available through Epic’s storefront for a year after launch. If you’re not a fan of the Epic Games Store, there’s still hope – the company is tying up with the Humble Store to sell keys through its storefront.
