Global videogame publisher 505 Games and its partner, “internationally renowned” developer Remedy Entertainment, Plc., have released a free December update for the highly enjoyable third-person action-adventure game Control. The DLC contains the new ‘Expeditions’ mode.

The ‘Expeditions’ mode offers a challenging combat experience for players who have completed the main campaign. The announcement was shared at The Game Awards 2019, where Control was nominated for eight categories, including 2019 Game of the Year. The title went on to win the award for Best Art Direction.

A new trailer for ‘Expeditions’ was shared. The trailer also teased the first Expansion DLC ‘The Foundation’ which will be released come March 26, 2020. The ‘Expeditions’ update is currently available to everyone who owns Control on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

According to the official description:

Control 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. After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden (actress Courtney Hope, nominated for Best Performance in a Videogame), the new Director struggling to regain Control in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our reality with the unexplainable.

As for the update:

Expeditions expand Jesse’s story, taking her to new areas of the Threshold, each with its own unique challenges for her to overcome. Players who successfully complete Expeditions will be rewarded with rare mods and powerful crafting materials unique to the mode, as well as a new outfit for Jesse.

Take note; players who have completed the main story mission “My Brother’s Keeper” in Control can use the mysterious Jukebox locked away in a room in Central Executive to access ‘Expeditions.’

By obtaining Jukebox Tokens, players will be able to hear the song that has the power to transport Jesse into a different dimension.

The main game is available for physical and digital retail. You can get it for the PC through the Epic Games Store. The base game is priced at $59.99 (through publisher 505 Games).

I reviewed Control back in August of this year. As far as my opinion goes, I highly recommend you play it. This indie title deserves all the love it can get.

A new content map was also shared in September. Apparently, the ‘AWE’ DLC, scheduled for Mid 2020, will be an Alan Wake crossover.

Have you played Control yet? What did you think of it? Let us know.
