Control DLC Roadmap confirms Alan Wake crossover

We bloody love Control here at PowerUp!. In case you haven’t already, you can check out our review or an in-depth chat with Remedy’s Sam Lake to see what we already (think we) know. Today though, there’s been some incredibly exciting news as the DLC roadmap for Control has been revealed and Control/Alan Wake DLC is all but confirmed.

Throughout Control, you can find references to Bright Falls and Alan Wake as Control reframes the events of the Alan Wake game with its own rules.

We already knew that the second expansion for Control was called AWE, however, today, Remedy revealed artwork for the DLC and, well, see for yourself.

Clearly that’s Wake in the top half of the word AWE with Jesse underneath. According to Remedy’s description;

The second Expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new area of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events.

It doesn’t give anything away but the artwork does.

In addition to the (probable) return of Alan Wake, the other content coming to Control is;

  • Photo Mode: Remedy is working on the much-desired Photo Mode, arriving this fall free to all players, which will enable players to take awesome snapshots of Jesse in the Oldest House. 
  • New Game Mode: In December, the Expeditions game mode will be released, offering challenging new end-game content in which Jesse must help Security Chief Arish explore the mysterious Formation and its strange surroundings. Here you will face some of the greatest challenges the Oldest House has to throw at you. Expeditions will be free to all players.
  • Expansions: In 2020, two full, paid Expansions will be released, The Foundation and AWE. Both will offer new story missions, teams, enemies and game mechanics, and will take place in new locations within the Oldest House.
    • The Foundation will delve into the history of the Oldest House. At the request of the ever-mysterious Board, Jesse must explore what lies beneath the Bureau as she returns order to the Foundation and the Oldest House itself.

Players will be able to purchase each expansion separately or as part of a season pass after the release of The Foundation.

Control is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
