's supernatural mind-bender Control
a definite Game of the Year contender
, the studio has outlines its plans for post-launch updates and content. In addition to a recent patch
that fixed some of the bigger issues, some free content in the form of a Photo Mode is in the works plus a New Game Mode that will introduce Expeditions - described as "challenging new end-game content".
Where "Jesse must help Security Chief Arish explore the mysterious Formation and its strange surroundings." More Control in any form sounds great, as per our review the combat "blends Force-like powers with the supernatural and strange" - so more of that is definitely welcome.
Where things get interesting is that Control will receive two full expansions in 2020 called The Foundation and AWE. Stuff that will expand on the already fascinating sci-fi lore found in its world. And as per the teaser below looks to be teasing an Alan Wake crossover.
The Foundation will delve into the history of the Oldest House. At the request of the ever-mysterious Board, Jesse must explore what lies beneath the Bureau as she returns order to the Foundation and the Oldest House itself.
The second Expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new area of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events.
There seems to be some PS4 exclusivity going on too, as the Season Pass for the above is available for pre-order on Sony's console now, and will arrive on Xbox One and PC after the release of The Foundation.
Bringing things back to the Photo Mode - with the PC version's impressive and stunning implementation of real-time ray-tracing thanks to NVIDIA GeForce RTX support - this is a feature that we'll be checking out extensively.
