  • Control Gamescom Media Wrap Up [Updated with Day Five]

    It's Gamescom time which means a new media wrap up thread! Naturally as E3 revealed Control, things are a little less hectic this time around. Although I'm sure we'll have plenty to talk about.

    Before we get into the latest announcements, a little recap of what we know so far:

    "Control is Jesse Faden's story. The main plot focuses on her personal search for answers as she grows into the role of the Director. The world of Control has its own story, as do the allies Jesse meets along the way. Side-quests and Secrets are everywhere. Jesse works with other Bureau agents, decodes cryptic ciphers and discovers strange Bureau experiments."

    The game is being developed by Remedy, published by 505Games, and will launch in 2019 on PC, XBOX One and PS4.

    With the new game reveal comes a list of new bookmarks! There's a new website (, a new Twitter channel (@ControlRemedy), and a new Facebook page (Control - Remedy).

    [BONUS] While not strictly Remedy-related, a surprise announcement came today in the form of The Dark Pictures Anthology by Supermassive Games, which features a familiar face as Shawn Ashmore stars in the first game of the series, Man of Medan. The game is coming out in 2019 on PC, XBOX One and PS4.

    [VIDEO] Thirteen minutes of Control's gameplay, narrated by Remedy's Head of Communications, Thomas Puha, and uploaded by GameStar. (The original answers have been translated to German and it's difficult to hear the original what Thomas said in English. Hopefully they will upload the original video soon, but in the meantime even if you don't speak German, it's still a really interesting video!)

    [VIDEO] CerealKillerz talked to Game Director, Mikael Kasurinen about what players can expect to see in Jesse's upcoming adventure. Get some coffee first, it's a lengthy fifteen minute interview.

    [PREVIEW] Fellow fan, Patrick from PayneReactor, got the opportunity to check out the behind-closed-doors preview at the show. You can read his impressions on the PR site now.

    I'm looking forward RTX 4080 when the ray-tracing will be a considerable reason to look into. Thought Control looks real nice with or without ray-traced shadows

      Aside from ray-tracing tech related stuff, did we get any news at all?

        Sorry for the lack of updates! It was suddenly a rough week with sudden sickness and demands after the initial post but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. I'll try to update the first post soon.

        The ray-tracing was the main Control-related thing to come out of Gamescom, but we have more interviews and previews too. There's also a thirteen minute gameplay video hosted by Remedy's Head of Communications which is one of my personal main Gamescom favourite.

          Look at me being a rebel and double posting. I just wanted to add details about a giveaway which I didn't include in the opening post as it's only available for a few days.

          If you're interested in winning a rare Federal Bureau of Control pin, given to press at E3 2018 and Gamescom 2018, you're in luck! XBOX previewer and ambassador, Daniel Heithorn is running a giveaway from now until 31st August on Twitter. (He was given additional pins by Remedy to host the giveaways online.) All you need to do to enter is follow him and the Control Twitter pages and retweet a specific status. Full details can be found HERE.
