Drawing on the look and feel of both Alan Wake and the underrated Quantum Break, comes the latest action-adventure from Remedy - called Control. Launching next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this is the game that was previously teased as P7 or Project 7. And in motion, well, it looks fantastic.
And very much a Remedy production thanks to the impressive visual effects, moody atmosphere, wonderful art direction, and stylish time and physics-bending combat.
Published by 505 Games, Control is the first Remedy title in many years to not be from Microsoft Game Studios. That being said, it looks every bit the AAA experience that we've come to expect from the studio. Set in New York, players take on the role of Jesse Faden - the head of a secret agency. Turns out an other-worldly threat has begun an invasion, leading to the impressive combat we see in the debut trailer.
“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.”
