505 Games and Remedy Entertainment today released Photo Mode as a free update for the award-winning supernatural action-adventure game Control. Control’s newly added Photo Mode invites players to express their creativity by capturing, customizing and sharing their favorite moments in just a few easy steps.
Accessible through the in-game options, the Photo Mode menu provides players with both a Camera tab and a Filters tab, offering access to a set of tools which allow players to customize and adjust their captured content before sharing online. Players can adjust aperture, broaden or tighten the field of view. They can also change the focus distance and select from ten filters that are currently available. Players can also remove characters from shot selects, offering unobstructed views of Control’s brutalist hallways.
Control debuted to acclaim this summer, with critics praising it as both a technical and artistic marvel. Control on PC is one of the first games to support multiple ray-traced effects. Remedy has used RT to enahnce the game’s reflections, shadows, and indirect diffuse lighting.
Last but not least, Remedy will release a new free gameplay mode for all players at the end of this year. According to the team, everyone who owns Control will be getting the challenging Expeditions mode. In this mode, Jesse will need to complete different objectives within a set time to get powerful rewards.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
