Above is a story trailer released as of late. Control is a video game releasing to the Xbox One, PS4, PC on August 27th, 2019.

(From Wiki) Control is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games. The game revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control, a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena which violate the laws of reality.

I've been interested in this game since it was shown at E3 2019. I can't wait for it to release to play it. :3

Awesome. I've been wondering if anyone else here liked the look of this game. Man, it releases on the 24th? That's really soon!

I've loved this game's looks and feel from day one. I was really disappointed I couldn't get to play it at PAX since there were like 4 stations that had mandatory reservations (of a 20 minute demo), but everything I've heard about the game since demos have come out for people to try is just outright positive and intriguing. I also forgot how soon this game was releasing. Definitely one of the first things I wanna play in my new house Grin

Also Atem I think you either misread or typoed, but it releases on the 27th, not the 24th Wink

I had a quick look at the gameplay, and it reminds me of Prey (2017) but as a third person shooter. Prey would let you take control of things and throw items and whatnot if you had those powers, and a lot of the Control gameplay I watched features similar things to that. I assume IGN had it on an easy difficulty though since it didn't really look like the player had to avoid fire much. They were just running around in the open tossing things at people and only taking minimal damage.

For anyone considering this game, be warned that despite positive reviews, the game is badly optimized for almost every system it's available on.



Apparently this is varying wildly and is caused by something more than hardware, as Digital Foundry have found it can run relatively fine on one PS4 but poorly on another. Same with Xbox One and Xbox One S, with the latter being worse.

Hah, sounds to me like they intended for it to be a Playstation exclusive if you think about it, in that it runs better on the PS4 Pro over M$'s Xbox consoles.

Actually it runs best on One X so that doesn't hold up.

I've read some people say they think this game might have been meant for next gen hardware & plan to wait to get it for the PS5 or Nextbox. I'm kind of leaning that way myself since all I have is a PS4 Pro & 0 plans to get the Xbox1x. >~>"

I've seen that too. I've also seen people say this is a trend with games by Remedy that get fixed later, which makes me wonder if better hardware would just be negated by them pushing that further than they should too.

It's been a mixed bag from what I've been hearing, so you may have a completely fine experience regardless of what console you have, though it will probably be more likely to encounter problems on less beefed-up consoles. I'd say it's worth a chance if you have a Pro or X on hand. I'm unsure if I'd try it myself since I still have a base model PS4. Eh Hopefully they'll patch something in some time soon, or at least by the holiday when I'll consider picking this up. Hmm

I do have a Pro, but I'll wait for Control to drop in price over the up coming holiday season. (Though from what I've been hearing Control has already dropped in price on Amazon anyway.)
