The newest mind-bending game from Remedy made an appearance at Sony’s E3 2018 conference. The new game, Control, looks to blend telekinetic abilities and a constantly morphing gun into its combat. From what we saw in the short trailer you appear to be in some kind of facility or another world with constantly changing geometry for you to navigate through as you fight against people and monster-like entities.
The third-person action adventure game sees you play as Jesse Faden as she becomes the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control. After your agency is invaded in New York by some otherworldly threat, you are looking to regain Control. Control will be a sandbox-style, gameplay-driven game allowing players to combine your powers with changeable loadouts to fight off this threat in a reactive environment.
“Control represents a new exciting chapter for us, it redefines what a Remedy game is. It shows off our unique ability to build compelling worlds while providing a new player-driven way to experience them,” said Mikael Kasurinen, Control game director. “A key focus for Remedy has been to provide more agency through gameplay and allow our audience to experience the story of the world at their own pace”.
Control will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
