Control Ultimate Edition Coming to Steam August 27

Control Ultimate Edition was announced by 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment on Wednesday, hot off the heels of the trailer for “AWE,” the upcoming expansion for the game. This new edition will include the base game and all expansions and be Control’s introduction to the Steam marketplace on August 27, 2020, the one-year anniversary for the release of the game. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Control Ultimate Edition will release on September 10. Furthermore, purchasers of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions will receive free next-gen upgrades for the release of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

 

Remedy Entertainment is holding a Twitch live stream on August 13 at 12:00 PM EST where fans can get a glimpse of what to expect. The stream will feature 15 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming “AWE” expansion and a discussion of Remedy Entertainment’s storytelling methods and the “Remedy Connected Universe”. This will all be hosted by Same Lake (Remedy Entertainment’s Creative Director) and Mikael Kasurinen (Control’s Game Director).

 

 

Control was originally announced as a project codenamed “P7” in 2017 and officially revealed during Sony’s E3 2018 press conference. After three years of development, the game released on August 27, 2019 to high praise from critics and players. Here on Sick Critic, the game received a 7/10 for being a “sophisticated and exciting game filled with a rush of adrenaline…” The staff also collectively named it Sick Critic’s 2019 Game of the Year and gave it Honorable Mention in our “Top 10 Games of the 2010s” article. However, its awards certainly don’t end with our rankings. In The Game Awards 2019, Control won Best Art Direction and was nominated for seven other awards, including Game of the Year and Best Action/Adventure Game. It also received plenty of other nods in the Golden Joystick Awards and several other award shows.

 

Control Ultimate Edition will release on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for £29.99.
