The second and final expansion for Remedy Entertainment‘s award-winning supernatural action-adventure game Control, will be released on 27 August 2020 for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Follow Jesse as she ventures deeper into the Oldest House.
Published by 505 Games, players and fans can join Remedy’s Creative Director Sam Lake and Control Game Director Mikael Kasurinen on Twitch 14 August, 12:00 (GMT+8) a.m. PST to get your exclusive first look at the opening 15-minutes of AWE gameplay and explore the award-winning studio’s approach to storytelling, touching upon the “Remedy Connected Universe”. The stream will be hosted by Control community manager Vida Starčević.
AWE will take Bureau Director Jesse Faden to the Investigations Sector of the Oldest House, where the Federal Bureau of Control closely examines Altered World Events (AWE) – happenings where paranatural forces breach our world with sometimes grave consequences. The expansion, which becomes available following the completion of Mission 7 in the main game campaign, will require players enter the Investigations Sector and confront the creature lurking within this long-abandoned part of the Bureau. To reclaim the Investigations Sector from its clutches, Jesse will need to explore the Altered World Events investigated here, including one from the town of Bright Falls where Jesse learns more about the disappearance of the writer Alan Wake.
The Digital Deluxe PS4 version or season pass holders will automatically receive the expansion on 27 August. The expansion season pass is also available separately at $24.99 to also gain access to the previous expansion, The Foundation. Otherwise, the expansions can be purchased separately at $14.99 each.
