That covers the Control Update 1.03 Patch Notes. This should hopefully go a long way to improving the performance of the game on PS4 and PS4 Pro. Both of these consoles have suffered from substantial frame rate issues during combat and high-intensity battles.

Remedy confirmed last week in a community blog that they are looking into these issues. Our reviewer, Eric Hauter suffered from a number of frame rate drops when he reviewed the game a few weeks ago.

You can read his full review here. Control debuted in the top five of the UK retail charts, but it suffered a 70% sales drop this past week.

Control is available now on PS4. Update 1.03 is available now PS4 and will be live on PC and Xbox One soon.
