Remedy Entertainment unveiled their next project during Sony’s E3 presentation this evening. The developer is calling the title Control, and we got our first look at the game via the below trailer.
Control was previously going by the code name of “P7” which you may have heard thrown around over the last few months. It’s being described by the developer as a third-person action-adventure game that incorporates gunplay with supernatural abilities.
Here’s Remedy’s synopsis for their mysterious new title:
“After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.”
The game’s director, Mikael Kasurinen, spoke to he and his team’s excitement following the title’s announcement:
“Control represents a new exciting chapter for us, it redefines what a Remedy game is. It shows off our unique ability to build compelling worlds while providing a new player-driven way to experience them. A key focus for Remedy has been to provide more agency through gameplay and allow our audience to experience the story of the world at their own pace”
While Control made its debut during PlayStation’s event, the game isn’t an exclusive. Remedy and their publishing partners at 505 Games confirmed the title will be headed to Xbox One and PC alongside the PlayStation 4 version sometime in 2019.
