Time to take Control... again.

Today, 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment unveiled The Foundation, which is the first expansion to Control. Those who own the Digital Deluxe version of Control for the PS4 will receive it for free when it launches worldwide on March 26.

For those wanting an explanation of what exactly is going on in The Foundation, here is a good primer:

The Foundation expansion will delve into the Oldest House’s history. Jesse is alerted by the Board that a situation has arisen in the Foundation, the bedrock of the Oldest House. A mysterious structure called the Monolith has been damaged, resulting in the Astral Plane leaking into the Foundation. If Jesse does not find a way to stop it, the entire Oldest House, along with the Bureau, will be consumed by this invading dimension.

Players who own either the base PlayStation 4 or PC version will be able to purchase a PC pass via the Epic Games Store for $20, which will grant access to The Foundation and the second expansion, AWE, which will arrive for Control in late Summer 2020. They can also purchase each expansion for the PlayStation 4 or PC for $9.99 each. For more information on the upcoming expansion, be sure to check out the cool trailer below:

Quick Take:

As someone who hasn't played Control or paid any attention to it at all, this trailer was really confusing but also kind of intriguing. Maybe when it comes off the Epic Games Store and it's released to my Xbox PC subscription I'll give it a whirl. We'll see.
