    Game overview

    Get lost in an ever-shifting building beset by supernatural forces

    From developer Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake), Control is a supernatural third-person action-adventure that challenges you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments, while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.

    After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, take on the role of Jesse Faden (Courtney Hope), the building's new Director, and fight to regain control of the situation.

    Explore a vast concrete skyscraper known as 'The Oldest House' with your trusty Service Weapon, a supernatural shape-shifting sidearm, in hand. This vast, ever-shifting environment is far bigger on the inside that its exterior would suggest and filled with far deeper secrets.


    Uncover Jesse Faden's story

    Unravel a plot that centres around new director Jesse Faden's personal search for answers as she gets to grips with her new corporate role. The world of Control, though, also has its own story to tell, as do the allies you'll meet along the way.

    Seek out the side-quests and secrets that abound in this unpredictable environment and work with other Bureau agents to decode cryptic ciphers and shed light on the strange experiments that have been taking place in this vast New York building.
