Remedy Entertainment has announced that there’s a new version of their smash-hit shooter Control, coming soon to a variety of platforms. It’s called Control Ultimate Edition and will be put out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. And that means it’s getting all the bells and whistles turned on. The game comes with all of the previously released DLC, making it the best way to experience the full story of Control.
Two pieces of DLC —The Foundation and AWE—have been pushed out so far. Each one added new elements to the story and new levels to tackle. If you want a rather incredible shooter with a mind-bending story, this is it.
When does Control Ultimate Edition release for PS5 and XSX?
Control Ultimate Edition has a launch date set next year for the next-gen console. This version of the game will get full 60 FPS support with all the effects that you would expect. The digital release comes first, with the game coming out on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X digitally on February 2, 2021. The physical release is due out on March 2, 2021.
As for what each version will have, it’s mostly the same game as the PC port, with all the DLC included. There’s just going to be a little less quality to the affair on consoles as it has up to 60 FPS or a 30 FPS mode that turns on ray-tracing lighting effects.
What about the PC and other consoles?
Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on Steam for PC worldwide on Thursday, August 27. So if you want to get in on it, you’re going to have to wait a while. The game has been out a while, but the release of the new game for PC and older consoles is a ways off.
The version is even coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. The game will release on PS4 and Xbox One on Thursday, September 10. There will be a physical version of this port, although no release date has been announced.
Gamers who purchase the Control Ultimate Edition PS4 or Xbox One ports will automatically receive a free upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X for those systems when those versions come out. So it really can’t hurt to buy the game ASAP and then take part when those next-gen consoles launch later this year.
