Announced this evening at the Sony E3 2018 presentation is the new IP called Control for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The release date has been confirmed as 2018.
Control will come in collaboration from 505 Games and Remedy Games. Little is known as of yet, but the trailer looks a bit like Infamous with a touch of Remember Me.
Remedy Entertainment, creators of Max Payne and Alan Wake, have also confirmed a few details post-show. Control is a third-person action adventure featuring plenty of shooting and supernatural abilities.
Players will need to master a range of supernatural abilities in a sandbox-style game-world. You’ll play the role of Jesse Faden, a director of secret New York agency.
Environments will be reactive and they’ll be modifiable loadouts. Speaking in a press release, Remedy 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,” said Mikael Kasurinen, game director of Control. “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”
