According to 505 Games and Remedy;

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.

With the announcement of the Control release date, players are now able to pre-order the game. Pre-orders will be rewarded with two exclusive in-game items; 

  • The Tactical Response Gear outfit for Jesse
  • A Crafting Resources Pack

Those who purchase Control on PS4 will also be rewarded with launch day goodies including;

  • Rare Service Weapon
  • Player mods
  • The Astral Dive suit for Jesse
  • Two themes 

Retail editions include the Deluxe Edition that includes Metal Packaging and art cards. The PS4 Deluxe Edition will also give players an extra-side mission and bonus outfits. It also comes with two expansions; The Foundation and AWE.

These expansions will be released at a later date and include new locations, narrative content, side missions and more. 

Control will launch for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 27, 2019.
