For many moons, Remedy and 505 Games have been secretively at work on a new project. Code-named P7, this game was the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake, has long been awaited and speculated about. Today, during Sony’s PlayStation briefing at E3, the actual name of the game, as well as its concept has been revealed. Spoiler alert: it looks like it may have been worth the wait!
Control Announcement Trailer
No longer known as merely P7, the project is actually called Control, and puts you in control in of Jesse Faden this third-person action adventure. She is the new director of the Federal Bureau of Control in a unique and ever-changing world, that is as familiar as ours as it is foreign from it. As you can see in the trailer, there is time-shifting involved, one of Remedy’s specialties that it introduced with Max Payne.
“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,” said Mikael Kasurinen,game director of Control. “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”
“From our first meetings with Remedy we’ve been inspired by the vision and scope of Control, and we are proud to help them bring this game to life and get it into the hands of players,” said Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games. “We believe this is going to be another major hit for both our companies, on a bigger scale than ever before.”
We hope to have more details of Control once we’ve had some quality time with the title here at E3, so stay tuned for that. Control will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for PC in 2019.
