CALABASAS, Calif. – Aug. 21, 2019 – Global videogame publisher 505 Games and its partner, internationally renowned developer Remedy Entertainment, Plc. today revealed the launch trailer for the award-winning Control. This new cinematic trailer invites players once again into the mysterious Oldest House for a glimpse at the challenges that await them as they take on the role of the newest Director of the Federal Bureau of Control:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DZsSVVLyOc

Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.

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. 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.

Launching globally* Tuesday, Aug. 27 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for physical and digital retail, with a simultaneous digital launch on the Epic Games store for PC, Control is playable this week at the Gamescom fair in Germany, running through Aug. 24. (*Control will launch later this autumn in Japan, through publishing partner Marvelous.)

To celebrate the launch of Control, 505 Games will host a stream on Tuesday, Aug. 27 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT in an effort to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a hospital and research facility working to change the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Guests will include Twitch Partner SanchoWest and other surprise appearances. To watch or donate, please visit: https://tiltify.com/@505games/505-games-for-st-jude.

Fans in the UK will have an opportunity to play Control in the Sony booth at Insomnia65 in Birmingham, running Friday, Aug. 23 – Monday, Aug. 26, while fans in North America will have an opportunity to try the game at the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) West in Seattle, WA from Friday, Aug. 30 to Monday, Sept. 2 in the 505 booth (#425), the Discord booth (#2109) and the Sony America booth.
