It’s now a year since the captivating game experience Control released and, to celebrate, a new expansion has arrived.
Entitled AWE, it’s the second – and final – expansion for the game.
The new story promises to take Bureau director Jesse Faden to the Investigations Sector of the Oldest House, where the Federal Bureau of Control closely examines Altered World Events (AWE) – happenings where paranatural forces breach our world with sometimes grave consequences.
The expansion becomes available to play after completion of the seventh main campaign mission, requiring players to enter the Investigations Sector and confront the creature lurking within this long-abandoned part of the Bureau. Eep!
Fans of Control developers Remedy’s Alan Wake series will be delighted to learn that one event that Jesse will explore is from the town of Bright Falls, and it involves the disappearance of Wake.
Meanwhile, Control: Ultimate Edition will be available for PS4 and Xbox One on October 20, featuring the mani game and the two expansions – The Foundation and AWE – in one handy physical package. Check out our review of the core game here.
