‘Control: Ultimate Edition’ Coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC … With a Catch

     August 12, 2020

Introducing Control Ultimate Edition, launching August 27th on Steam.

 

Heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store September 10th.

 

Control Ultimate Edition comprises of:
* Control base game
* The Foundation (Expansion 1)
* AWE (Expansion 2)
* The Expeditions end game mode, Photo Mode and all the content updates since the release of the original game.

The good news is that Control, one of the best games of 2019, is getting a new “Ultimate Edition.” The doubly good news is that this version is coming to current-gen systems, as well as next-gen consoles and PC via Steam and Epic Games. It’ll come with the base game, two expansions, and both Expeditions end-game mode and Photo Mode; basically all the content since the game was released.

But there’s a downside: Folks who already own Control won’t be getting a next-gen bump for free when the PS5 and Xbox Series X are released … they’ll have to buy this Ultimate Edition all over again for that privilege. Seems a little strange to lock all that content behind a paywall instead of rewarding players who put their hard-earned cash down for the then-unproven title in the first place, but that’s the price of doing business I suppose.

You can get the details over at Control‘s official game page or at 505 Games’ own site, but the FAQ and announcement follows below, courtesy of 505 Games:
