E3 2018: First Gameplay Footage From Remedy’s Supernatural Action-Adventure ‘Control’
  |  @   |  

Earlier this week at E3 2018 we saw an announce trailer for Control, the next game from Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break developer Remedy Entertainment.

But Remedy wasn’t done with E3 just yet. They also shared the first glimpse at gameplay from Control. It’s not a ton of footage, but is enough to give you an idea of how the game is looking.

Continue below to check it out.

Here’s more on the game’s unveiling from Remedy’s official website:

Hello Remedy fans,

Our mysterious P7 finally has a name: Control. (It feels good to finally say that!)

The next Remedy game got its worldwide debut at the Sony E3 Media Briefing on Monday, June 11th. You can read the official press release here, and you can check out the Control announce trailer below. Subscribe and like, you know the deal.

We have been working towards this moment for quite a while, and in the meantime tried to distract you with Uuno the dog escapades and videos of the new Remedy development studio. All part of the plan, rest assured!

From now on, it’s all about Control! It’s exciting and nerve-wracking to show our new game to you to say the least. We have been working on Control ever since Quantum Break (and before) and we managed to keep it under wraps up until now, but now it’s time to start talking about it. Thank you for being patient! The game is coming out in 2019 for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.

We wanted to come out at E3 with a clear message on what kind of game Control is. It’s a single player game. It’s got story. It’s got action. It’s got mystery. It’s got that Remedy weirdness. It is a very deliberate thing that the trailer features gameplay. We are showing a 15 minute, behind closed doors, hands-off demo of Control at E3, and many of us from Remedy are over in Los Angeles to represent the rest of the team back in Finland.

Definitely keep your eye on gaming sites and social media to catch the latest on Control. We are all over E3 and are releasing a few episodes of our Remedy Roadshow on our YouTube channel chronicling our adventures in Los Angeles. At least the parts we are ready to show you”¦

So what is Control? It is in many ways something familiar, yet new from us. It’s a supernatural third person action-adventure with a cast of memorable characters and that twisted story you expect from Sam Lake and the rest of us at Remedy. Control is also a more gameplay-driven experience that gives players a lot of options on how to approach combat by giving you some cool supernatural abilities to upgrade, as well as the transforming Service Weapon that you can customize and develop. Control is a lot less linear of an experience compared to our previous games and offers more of a sandbox for players to enjoy and plenty of secrets to find in the Oldest House. Speaking of which, the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control is a very cool location for our game”¦we can’t wait to show you more on that. Finally, our heroine Jesse is another intriguing Remedy character with a mysterious past that you will get to discover”¦ maybe.

Watching the video below I definitely got a little bit of a Quantum Break vibe with the powers you have in this one, which makes sense considering it was their last game. Not a bad thing at all, as I was a huge fan of that game. It also looks like it might be a little creepier than their previous game, perhaps mixing in a bit of that Alan Wake tone. Again, not a bad thing at all as that’s another phenomenal game.

No release date has been set for Control yet, but it is planned for a 2019 launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
