We’re nearing the end of our month of exclusive Control
coverage, but we’re not going out without a bang. Today, we’ve got 8 minutes of never-before-seen gameplay for you to look at.Join Jesse Faden as she visits the Black Rock Processing department of the Federal Bureau of Control. That might sound like a trip down Bureaucracy Lane, but it actually involves entering a quarry that shouldn’t be there, lit by the light of stars that can’t exist, and stuffed full of haunted ex-employees to bounce off of walls. Lovely.
Along the way, you’ll see a lot of combat, featuring multiple weapon forms and powers (being able to chuck the bodies of downed enemies at other enemies never gets old). What you won’t see are any story spoilers, so don’t worry about taking a peek unless you want to stay 100% fresh.
If that’s left you wanting to see even more, we’ve got the game’s first 13 minutes to show off, as well as a full side mission and boss fight. If you still haven’t seen our thoughts in general after 8 hours, come and see why we think Control is smart, savage, and bats**t crazy.
