Control is the upcoming game by the developers being Quantum Break and Alan Wake. The game is set to release later this month and it is one of the major titles that are going to release in August. There is a lot of hype around the title by Remedy Entertainment.
As we get closer to release, the devs have started giving away information about the game and they talked about how the world is made so that players can keep on exploring. If you are interested in playing the game then that might be the good news that you were waiting to hear.
Game Director Mikael Kasurinen talked about the upcoming sci-fi shooter and he mentioned replayability and how the team is taking a different approach with Control. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Instead of making the game ‘replayable’, for us it was more about creating a world that you can keep exploring. Sometimes returning to an old location can be fun since you can access areas that you couldn’t before due to having a new access level, or an Ability.
Exploration is a vital part of any game and Kasurinen mentioned that players will have a lot of that in Control. He talked about how a major portion of the content available in the game is optional. You can skip to the end or experience the whole game and the lore that it has to offer the players.
He talked about the Oldest House and how it is an important part of the game. He mentioned that players should explore it in order to learn about the lore and its secrets. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
A huge part of the content is actually purely optional in regards of the main story arc, and we hope that people realize that, so they’ll spend more time exploring the Oldest House. It is not about repetition, it is about structuring the content in such a way that exploration, and just ‘being there’, is what you want to do, because everything you find will feel meaningful.
From what we have seen so far, the game seems very similar to Quantum Break but that might not be a bad thing. Let’s wait for the game to come out before we make any judgments.
Control is coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4 on August 27th, so be sure to check it out.
