505 Games and Remedy Entertainment have revealed the Control launch trailer, which you can watch using the player below. The cinematic Control launch trailer invites players once again into the mysterious Oldest House for a glimpse at the challenges that await them as they take on the role of the newest Director of the Federal Bureau of Control.
Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.
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.
Launching globally on Tuesday, Aug. 27 on PlayStation 4 (pre-order here) and Xbox One (pre-order here) for physical and digital retail, with a simultaneous digital launch on the Epic Games store for PC, Control is playable this week at gamescom in Germany, running through August 24.
To celebrate the launch of Control, 505 Games will host a stream on Tuesday, August 27 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT in an effort to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a hospital and research facility working to change the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Guests will include Twitch Partner SanchoWest and other surprise appearances. To watch or donate, click here.
