  • Control Patch Notes [Present and Upcoming]


    Following community feedback, 505Games have posted a list of possible solutions to common problems which have been cropping up, and also which issues the development team are hoping to fix in their first post-release patch. We'll use this thread to update you of all known issues which the company has addressed either through blog posts or social media so you know what's coming in future updates.

    Today 505Games and Remedy have published details on the first patch which is estimated to be released in mid-September, although there's not a fixed date at the moment. You can read the post in full here:

    Quick Breakdown:

    A number of users mentioned about having RTX issues, for this the studios recommend checking you have the latestversion of Windows 10 (1903) as that will solve a lot of the named problems that have been arising.

    For their first patch, they're working to get a toggle option for "Motion Blur & Film Grain" and ensuring that the map displays properly, plus a number of other optimization updates particularly for console gamers.

    Remedy has also released a statement about HDR saying, "early on in Control’s development, it was decided that HDR would not be implemented in-game. This is a decision based on the fact that development resources are limited, and we need to allocate what we have in a certain way. Moving into post launch, we prefer to use the resources we have to focus on future free content for Control like the Photo Mode. We realize this may disappoint some players, but we hope the additions we plan to bring to Control more than make up for the absence of HDR."
