Control’s Story Trailer Offers More Questions

Remedy released a new trailer for the recently gone Gold Control, the latest bizarre adventure from the minds behind Max Payne and Alan Wake. I’m still not sure exactly what the trailer is trying to do, or exactly what The Hiss is all about but a good science-fiction story is always something I’m up for.

After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new Director struggling to regain Control. This supernatural third-person action-adventure game will challenge you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.

Playing as Jesse Faden, you’re looking for your brother Dylan, after being kidnapped by the same bureau who took your sibling years earlier. Arriving at the Federal Bureau of Control, you find the place overrun by The Hiss, capable of possessing the agents.

Control launches on August 27 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
