Control is an action-adventure video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games. Control was originally released on 27 August 2019 for PlayStation 4.
The game revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that violate the laws of reality. As Jesse Faden, the Bureau’s new Director, the player explores the Oldest House – the FBC’s paranormal headquarters – and utilize powerful abilities in order to defeat a deadly enemy known as the Hiss, which has invaded and corrupted reality.
The player gains abilities by finding Objects of Power, mundane objects like a rotary phone or a floppy disc imbued with energies from another dimension, that has been at the centre of major paranormal events and since recovered by the FBC.
Control: Ultimate Edition for PS4 and PS5 includes the base game as well as the Foundation and AWE expansions. The Ultimate Edition is free on PlayStation Plus for February 2021 for both PS4 and PS5.
