Control, the third-person shooter centering around a bureau investigating the paranormal, is coming to the Xbox Game Pass for PC on January 21st. So, if you have a subscription, you’ll be able to give it a whirl at your leisure. Since it came out in 2019, Control got a little buried among the huge titles that came out that year. I hope that this gives it more of an audience, because it does deserve it.
If you’re not familiar with Control, let me get you up to speed briefly. As I’ve said, it’s a third-person shooter, but it’s much more than that. Your character has a bevy of supernatural powers at her disposal, which make things significantly spicier. It definitely makes for some pretty engaging action set pieces. Plus, the story is fun. If you’re a fan of parallel universes, conspiracies, and high-concept ideas such as the collective unconscious, you’ll definitely enjoy Control. Add to that a great art design, and you’ve got a pretty complete package. It deserves at least a little attention.
So, if you’ve been looking at Control and wondering whether it’s worth a shot, and you have the Xbox Game Pass for PC, this will be your ideal chance to give it a spin. At the very least, it has some fun game mechanics and a bizarre story covering topics that I personally really like. You might, too. If you happen to get stuck at some point, we’ve got a few guides that might point you in the right direction. For example, we’ve written What A Mess – Pump Station Door Puzzle – Clear The Clog, Go To Central Executive To Collect Your Reward, and Unknown Caller – Oceanview Motel Puzzle & How to Reach Hotline, to name just a few. Hope you find them useful.
