Remedy’s mind-bending thriller returns

505 Games, alongside developer Remedy Entertainment, has announced that Control: Ultimate Edition will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X in a digital capacity on February 2, it will then be followed by a physical release a month later on March 2.

A short teaser video showcases the 2019 physics-defying adventure running on PlayStation 5, where the release will offer a 60 FPS “Performance Mode” and a 30 FPS “Graphics Mode” – the latter of which features ray-tracing support and heightened textures, lighting, and other visual effects. Control Ultimate Edition will include the base title along with its two expansion packs, photo mode, and endgame content “Expeditions”.

Control: Ultimate Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X will be offered as a free upgrade for players who already own Control: Ultimate Edition on PS4 or Xbox One. In a notable controversy, it will not be offered to those who purchased the original release of Control and/or its DLC expansions separately.
