Remedy Entertainment has announced that Control Ultimate Edition would be coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on February 2, 2021 digitally, with a retail release following on March 2nd. It will have a 60fps Performance Mode and a 30fps Graphics Mode with ray-tracing. Check out some PS5 gameplay below:
Control Ultimate Edition includes the original game, the two expansions called The Foundation and AWE, and Expeditions (an end game mode) and Photo Mode, which is rather self-explanatory. For the PC version on Steam, the Ultimate Edition of the game costs $39.99, which seems like a fair price for the game, which was released in August 2019.
What is Control Ultimate Edition?
It's a third-person action-adventure title where the player must try and stop a corruptive presence that has entered the Federal Bureau of Control. Only the player has the power to stop the presence, and the player will be able to use the environment as a weapon at their disposal in order to save the world. Like most Remedy titles, there are supernatural elements, a weird story, and secrets to uncover as the player searches for their missing brother. It's almost expected at this point, but Remedy knows their niche and excels in it, so it's not really a big deal.
The game was originally delayed from its original 2020 release date to 'Early 2021' in order to be polished up a little for next-gen platforms. There has been anger with publisher 505 games, over the decision not to allow current gen owners of the original game, even if they owned the season pass, to get a free cross-generation upgrade. That was amplified, when several people were issued free upgrades, that were promptly removed by 505, showing that at least on one platform it was possible for them to do upgrades. We'll see if that outrage will be reflected in sales figures when it launches on next-gen consoles.
Control Ultimate Edition includes the original game, the two expansions called The Foundation and AWE, along with Expeditions and a Photo Mode. It will be released on February 2 digitally and March 2nd in retail. For more information about Control, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
