Control Is Coming Back To Us Again In An Ultimate Edition


An Ultimate Edition for Control has been announced that will package Control with all of its DLC for all of the platforms out there

So many have had a chance to play Control so far and with all of the DLC and updates that have come since launch. That is, at least those on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC not using Steam. It is an amazing game with a whole lot of fun content that holds up to the Remedy standards as I see it. Sadly, when you look at that list before, there are a lot of gamers out there that may have missed out on Control the first time around. This is why we are getting an Ultimate Edition so that those Steam gamers can join in now and those that did not get the full package will have access to all of that DLC too. Oh, and those that are holding out until the PS5 and Xbox Series X will have the option to dive into it all as well when those systems launch.

As you can assume here, the Ultimate Edition of Control houses the game and all the DLC with the usual updates we have had thus far. It is nice and will get you started off right. Thankfully, this announcement also comes with the addition that we will see a FREE update for Control when the next-gen systems launch so you can own the game already or pick up the Ultimate Edition when it launches and still be able to play it on the newer systems. I think that Control is worth your time right now as it is a great escape from the world, so it might be worth not waiting. Just know that if you do wait, you will not have to purchase anything further to get the full experience the rest of us have.
