Control Xbox One

Can you regain Control? An otherworldly threat has invaded a secretive agency in New York—and now you’re the Director, struggling against unpredictable forces.

This action adventure from Remedy Entertainment combines shifting architecture, supernatural combat and warped reality to create an otherworldly experience. Play as Jesse Faden, the new Director tasked with regaining control of the supernatural building. As she grows into the role of Director, masters her supernatural abilities and forms alliances on her search for answers, the world of Control begins to reveal its story.

The world you explore is not what it seems. Within a sprawling New York building, you’ll find deep, diverse environments and unpredictable architecture that defies the laws of space-time. Define your own unique playstyle with modifiable loadouts and abilities such as telekinesis and levitation. Harness supernatural powers and environmental destruction in combat, and master complex rituals to alter your surroundings.

Uncover strange experiments and dark secrets as Jesse works with other agents to take back Control. But beware—not every agent is who they appear to be.

Nice to see a decent price drop on this at last; hopefully others will follow.
Initially I wasn't feeling this but it ended up being the best game Remedy have made since Max Payne 2.
Getting closer to my bitting point.
Great game

Other than Alan Wake, what else have they made since then?

Ah yes, Quantum Break...

This wasn't on my radar at all until I seen it at number 2 in Polygon's Top 50 Games of 2019. Great deal, think I'll give it a go.

Personally my favourite game of 2019, and a great deal at this price!
Heat, if I didn’t have backlog I would bite at that price.

It was also IGN's top pick for the year.
Brilliant. Been waiting for this to come down from 45, bought and can't wait to pick it up. Cheers OP!!
I wanted to like this game as I love Remedy as a company but I just couldnt get into it
Great price heat added.

Ordered bet it goes on gamepass soon even tho they said it wont.

Is it worthy playing if you've already played through Quantum Break? Looks so similar.

While I'm yet to play Control myself, I very much plan to do so soon. By all accounts it's excellent, significantly different from and better than Quantum Break
Strangest game ever made
Has performance improved on ps?
Would have bought it at this price if there wasn't for a SEASON PASS, now I am waiting until late next year to see if they will release a Complete Edition.
Incedible game once it gets going.
If you loved Alan Wake, you have to play this too.
Thematicly different, but very much connected.
Hot hot, if you have both consoles slightly better on Xbox One X.

No, hasn’t been patched for a while. Still worth playing though. Platted it and enjoyed it. Tomassi is tough but bested him in the end

Bet Remedy will keep it off the games pass on pure principle. They were obviously willing to let it happen early next year but Microsoft leaking info hasn't gone down well with Remedy as that would of stopped a lot of folk buying it.
Thanks for this. Just ordered.

I still think it will happen, just won't get announced until new year. Phil doesn't normally say something if it hasn't been agreed, unless remedy now go back on their word (IF they said they would)

Microsoft loves to say what's coming to games pass sometimes months in advance but if I was remedy i would be very upset with Phil. He's single handedly put a massive dent in their Christmas profits. If a contract is signed I'm sure remedy will try and get out of it as if it goes on there now it will make them look like liars.

It's a shame because it's turning out to be a bit of a GOTY dark horse, Polygon and TGA's had it pegged as the second best game of the year, that has to give sales a bit of a bump.

The problem is whenever you search anywhere for 'control game xbox one' all the results are controllers it took a while for me to find it on Cex let alone buy it.

The one thing I didn't manage to get done.
Hours of trying and dying and in the end I just walked away.

But the power of the cloud!
Picked it up yesterday. Looking forward to getting to play it over Christmas
Waiting for it to be free on game pass, should be any day now!
Loved the previous game but couldn't get my head around this.
I came here thinking i was about get a cheap xbox pad, totally forgot this game existed

This game is by the same studio that made quantum break and the person I replied to said control is better

I agreed even without the magical "cloud" power
No idea about games. Looking to buy as a present. Is this game in first person ?

Isn't Quantum Break nearly 4 years old ? I doubt anyone expected them to release a worse game after all that time with or without using the cloud . According to Digital Foundry both Xbox one versions run Control better than the ps4/Pro versions so maybe it's time for Sony to start using those Azure cloud servers.
