Taking place in New York after a secretive agency is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. The game is billed as a “sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience” and is built on their proprietary Northlight engine. The gamehopes to challenge 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.”
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”
