There’s already been a number of discuss in regards to the relationship between Remedy Games’ Control and Alan Wake. Control is a game the place alternate dimensions have begun creeping into our personal, and among the many many Easter Eggs that this narrative gadget permits for are a pair intriguing callbacks to our Alan. These come within the type of Altered World Events, or AWEs – these damned leaky dimensions – and the supporting in-game paperwork which report on these occasions. From a secret space that triggers his look, to paperwork that monitor his motion within the aftermath of the 2010 game. Very curious.
Now in a newly released content roadmap, the developer seem like teasing an official Alan Wake crossover growth coming to Control.
So far it’s identified solely as AWE. Slated for someday mid-2020, AWE will comply with the discharge of Control’s first bureau-investigating growth The Foundation. There’s most likely one thing to be learn into the truth that Alan Wake and Altered Worlds share the identical initials. What’s attention-grabbing although is the game’s graphic design. The letters AWE are cut up horizontally, with artwork from Control taking on the decrease half of textual content and artwork from Alan Wake – see that flashlight of his? – within the prime half.
“AWE, will take Jesse into a brand new space of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, the place the Bureau intently examines Altered World Events,” is the one morsel Remedy presents.
Control can even be getting just a few free content material updates this yr. A pictures mode which is able to allow you to pause the game on the fly and take pics all through your tour of the paranormal is being added to the game in fall. Later, coming in December is end-game content material known as Expeditions which sees yer gal Jesse serving to Security Chief Arish discover the mysterious Formation and its equally mysterious environment. Remedy describes this as one of many tougher challenges within the game, which suggests you’ll want some first rate gear and skills to outlive it.
Control’s first growth, The Foundation, is slated for early 2020. This is a paid growth that delves into the historical past of the Oldest House.
