Control Expansions and More Content Plans Announced

Publisher 505 Games and developer Remedy announce plans for upcoming post-launch content for Control, their recently released action/adventure. This will begin this autumn with the release of a free Photo Mode, which will be followed in December with the launch of a new Expeditions game mode, which will likewise be free for all players. They also offer details on two paid expansions coming next year. The Foundation will be the game's first expansion and AWE will be the second, and these will be available individually or as part of a season pass. Here's the roadmap:
Global videogame publisher 505 Games and its partner, internationally renowned developer Remedy Entertainment, Plc. today announced a host of upcoming post-launch content for the award-winning Control. Critics are calling Control, which launched globally on Aug. 27, “one of the best games of 2019” (TIME Magazine) and “a game we’ll be talking about for generations” (GamesRadar); the “visually stunning” (Entertainment Weekly) Control is “Remedy at the peak of its game” (VG247).

Upcoming content for the renowned supernatural action-adventure game includes:

  • Photo Mode: Remedy is working on the much-desired Photo Mode, arriving this fall free to all players, which will enable players to take awesome snapshots of Jesse in the Oldest House.
  • New Game Mode: In December, the Expeditions game mode will be released, offering challenging new end-game content in which Jesse must help Security Chief Arish explore the mysterious Formation and its strange surroundings. Here you will face some of the greatest challenges the Oldest House has to throw at you. Expeditions will be free to all players.
  • Expansions: In 2020, two full, paid Expansions will be released, The Foundation and AWE. Both will offer new story missions, teams, enemies and game mechanics, and will take place in new locations within the Oldest House.
    • The Foundation will delve into the history of the Oldest House. At the request of the ever-mysterious Board, Jesse must explore what lies beneath the Bureau as she returns order to the Foundation and the Oldest House itself.
    • The second Expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new area of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events.

The PlayStation 4 Digital Deluxe Edition (£64.99) includes both Expansions, as well as an extra side mission, “Isolation” and an additional exclusive outfit, Jesse’s Urban Response Gear. For players who have already purchased the main game for PS4, the Season Pass is now available for pre-order, and also includes both expansions (upon release).

Each Expansion will also be available to purchase individually at release, and the Season Pass and individual Expansions will be available for purchase on Xbox One and PC, following the PlayStation 4 Expansion 1 “The Foundation” release. The AWE expansion will release on all platforms on the same date.

Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs,
you would not hear of that party again in our political history.....and they are stupid. Dwight D. Eisenhower

I am finding the whole missions/ maps/ traversing in different elevators deal a but of a bad design/ hard to completely get -- but the rest of it has a cool atmosphere to it . X-file'ish .

but the actual gameplay isn't all that great... pretty much boils down to " go into room , destroy bad guys using powers " , rinse . repeat...rinse . repeat to room alot.

Good thing it has other elements & weird story bits to break that up -

Well, I'm even more excited for the DLC... the logo for the AWE DLC has the Alan Wake artwork in the top half, implying its going to be related. Knew it was the same universe, giving some of the collectibles you found, but didn't expect them do to actual content.

Game is super fun, I get a lot of X-Files vibes from the story and characters. Once you get your powers it really opens up and I love visual direction of the levels. Lots of visual storytelling and stuff to show you where to go more organically so you don't need the map. This is much better than Quantum Break and deserves more attention than it's getting.
