Remedy Entertainment has announced Control at Sony’s E3 2018 press conference. This is a multiplatform game developed by Remedy Entertainment that is also coming the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The story of the game is set in a “unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable.” This game will feature the trademark third-person shooting of Remedy and combines it with Supernatural powers.
The official press release has also detailed the story synopsis for the game which you can read below.
After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.
“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, game director of Control. “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”
“From our first meetings with Remedy we’ve been inspired by the vision and scope of Control, and we are proud to help them bring this game to life and get it into the hands of players,” said Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games. “We believe this is going to be another major hit for both our companies, on a bigger scale than ever before.”
Control will be released in 2019 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It will be developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games.
