We’ve long had the chance to join Bureau Director Jesse Faden in the Oldest House with Control, and have already discovered many more secrets in The Foundation expansion. Now though it’s time to shine some light on AWE as 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment detail and date the next thrilling instalment for Control.
Revealed at Sony’s State of Play broadcast with a trailer, Control’s AWE expansion will arrive on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come August 27th, giving fans of the game another opportunity to wander the delicate halls of the Oldest House.
AWE will 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, which will become fully available following the completion of the seventh main mission (“The Face of the Enemy”) in the campaign, will require players to enter the Investigations Sector and confront the creature lurking within this long-abandoned part of the Bureau.
In order to reclaim the Investigations Sector from its clutches, Jesse will need to explore the Altered World Events investigated here, including one from the town of Bright Falls where Jesse learns more about the disappearance of the writer Alan Wake.
if you wish to know more about AWE then you can join Remedy Entertainment’s Creative Director Sam Lake and Control Game Director Mikael Kasurinen live on Twitch Thursday, August 13 at 9:00 a.m. PST where the two will offer an exclusive first look at the opening 15-minutes of AWE gameplay and explore the award-winning studio’s approach to storytelling, touching upon the “Remedy Connected Universe”. The stream will be hosted by Remedy’s community manager Vida Starčević and you’ll be able to follow along over at www.twitch.tv/remedygames.
To get access to Control’s AWE expansion on August 27th 2020 then you’ll need to either own the Digital Deluxe version of the game, or the expansion Season Pass. Further, you’ll be able to grab AWE as a separate purchase too.
