505 Games and Remedy have released a new set of screenshots and a trailer, showcasing some of the locations that will be featured in the highly anticipated supernatural action-adventure game Control. As the press release reads, the new trailer features narration by the distinguished James McCaffrey (Max Payne, Alan Wake, “Rescue Me”) in the role of former Bureau Director Trench.
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 (Courtney Hope), the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine will challenge 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.
The game is currently scheduled for a 2019 release and will support real-time ray tracing effects.
