505 Games and Remedy Entertainment have confirmed that Control will release on August 27, after this was initially reported last week, also revealing that pre-orders are available. There's even a new gameplay trailer today to celebrate this announcement.
"After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control," the press release reads. "This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for."
Those who pre-order the base game for £49.99 ($59.99 USD/€59.99) will receive two exclusive in-game items, these being the Tactical Response Gear outfit for Jesse and a Crafting Resources Pack, while those who choose the base game for PS4 also get the Rare Service Weapon and Player mods, the Astral Dive suit, and two themes.
The retail Deluxe Edition costs £59.99 ($69.99/€69.99) for PS4 and Xbox One, and comes with FuturePak Exclusive Metal Packaging and limited edition art cards. Then there's the PS4 Digital Deluxe Edition for £69.99 ($79.99/€79.99), including all the PS4 base version incentives plus an extra side mission called Isolation and the Urban Response Gear outfit. The version also comes with expansion packs The Foundation and AWE, coming after launch and bringing new locations, story content, side missions, and mods.
