Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games, have unveiled the first official details and screenshots for their highly anticipated game, previously known only by its codename, “P7.” Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.
According to the press release, Control is set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable. 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.
Mikael Kasurinen, game director of Control, said:
“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. 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”
Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games, added:
“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. We believe this is going to be another major hit for both our companies, on a bigger scale than ever before.”
Control is coming to the PC in 2019.
