Remedy Entertainment and publisher 505 Games have announced that they will release AWE, the second and final expansion for the award-winning supernatural action-adventure game Control, on Thursday, August 27 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. I’m excited!

According to the press release, the trailer for AWE premiered during Sony’s State of Play broadcast programming. It teased “fans with a thrilling first look at Jesse’s venture deeper into the Oldest House.”

I greatly enjoyed playing Control. I loved how satisfying it felt to use supernatural powers. In my opinion, it’s one of the best games to feature an amazing mechanic when it comes to telekinetic skills. So, you can tell why I’m looking forward to seeing what this upcoming expansion will offer fans.

Here’s the trailer!

Take note; you can join Remedy Entertainment’s Creative Director Sam Lake and Control Game Director Mikael Kasurinen live on Twitch Thursday, August 13 at 9:00 a.m. PST where the two will offer an exclusive first look at the opening 15-minutes of AWE gameplay. They will also explore the award-winning studio’s approach to storytelling, touching upon the “Remedy Connected Universe”.

The stream will be hosted by Remedy’s community manager Vida Starčević. You can follow Remedy on Twitch for live updates at

The description for the expansion reads:

AWE will take Bureau Director Jesse Faden to the Investigations Sector of the Oldest House, where the Federal Bureau of Control closely examines Altered World Events (AWE) – happenings where paranatural forces breach our world with sometimes grave consequences. The expansion, which becomes available following the completion of the seventh main mission (“The Face of the Enemy”) in the campaign, will require players enter the Investigations Sector and confront the creature lurking within this long-abandoned part of the Bureau. To reclaim the Investigations Sector from its clutches, Jesse will need to explore the Altered World Events investigated here, including one from the town of Bright Falls where Jesse learns more about the disappearance of the writer Alan Wake.

Players who own the Digital Deluxe version of Control for PlayStation 4 and season pass holders on all platforms will automatically receive this expansion on August 27, 2o20. Players who own the base game for PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One can purchase the expansion season pass for $24.99, providing access to the previously released expansion immediately, The Foundation, along with AWE when it releases on August 27, 2020.

Expansions can also be purchased a la carte on all platforms available for $14.99 each.

You should also know that 505 Games publishing partner Marvelous will release the AWE expansion for Control in Japan for PS4 (release date to be communicated soon). Huya will publish the expansion for PS4 in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia on August 27 and H2 Interactive will publish in Korea for PS4 on August 28, 2020.

Control was named “Action Game of the Year” by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences at the 23rd annual D.I.C.E Awards. In my opinion, this game deserved that title. You can currently own it on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. According to the press release, it will be coming to next-gen home consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Are you a fan of the Alan Wake franchise? Are you excited about the crossover with Control?
