Control, the latest action-adventure game from the Max Payne developer, Remedy Entertainment, will be released on Aug. 27. The new game, announced during Sony’s 2018 E3 presentation, follows a woman with supernatural abilities and a shape-shifting gun, in search of her brother who was kidnapped by a secretive government organization.
Control will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. A Deluxe Edition with extra DLC and collectibles is available as well. Remedy is also offering some incentives to pre-order the game. Below, we break down what’s included in each edition, along with pre-order bonuses and exclusives.
