Control comes out in less than a month and there is something… bizarre happening here. Like Remedy’s other games, bizarre is a medium the team is very comfortable working with and come August 27 we can dive in and try to make head or tail of what is really going on.
The story trailer introduces a new character but doesn’t provide us with a name or a moniker. This man tells the story of his dream about The Hiss, which is the supernatural power at the centre of Control’s mystery.
There is a lot of odd imagery, probably teasing us for not knowing what The Hiss really is or who the new character is. He talks about dreams and looks like he might be a test subject or asylum patient, but at one point he looks completely lucid and in control of what is happening to the protagonist. Or I am reading too much into it.
Control releases on August 27 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
