How Many Missions Are In Control?

Remedy’s Magnum Opus, Control, is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Control is a third-person Metroidvania game that features a golden path of story missions and additional side-missions for players to complete. By following the story, you’ll uncover the secrets of the Federal Bureau of Control and learn more about Jesse Faden; the new Director.

However, you’ll also want to complete the side-missions because they grant you ability points to level up, new costumes and provide a deeper insight into the world of Control.

Just how many missions are in Control I hear you ask? Let’s take a look.

How many missions in Control?

All up, there are 10 missions in Control. These 10 missions are the golden path and reveal the story of Control. While 10 missions may not sound like many, each mission takes quite a long time and so, you’ll be getting a decent amount of playtime from Control.

Additionally, there are 18 side-missions (that I’ve found) in Control, that further explain and expand on the world of Control and teach players the lore and rules of this universe.

The 10 main story missions are;

  1. Unknown Caller
  2. Directorial Override
  3. Old Boys’ Club
  4. Threshold
  5. My Brother’s Keeper
  6. The Face of the Enemy
  7. Finnish Tango
  8. Polaris
  9. Take Control
  10. Endgame

The 10 sub-missions are;

  1. A Merry Chase
  2. What a Mess: Burn the Trash
  3. What a Mess: Clear the Mold
  4. What a Mess: Clear the Clog
  5. What a Mess: Talk to the Plants
  6. What a Mess: Even More Mold
  7. What a Mess: Take a Break
  8. A Good Defense
  9. Mold Removal
  10. Self-Reflection
  11. Mr. Tommasi
  12. Old Friends
  13. Fridge Duty
  14. Langston’s Runaways
  15. The Enemy Within
  16. A Matter of Time
  17. Old Growth
  18. A Captive Audience

With 28 missions to complete, Control is easily Remedy’s biggest ever game. In addition, the Metroidvania design means that playing Control will take you all over the map, again and again, to complete missions, fine objects and learn more about the story.

Control is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
