Control was one of the surprising games that came out in 2019. The game was ambitious and a different take on the 3rd person shooter and it paid off as it was one of the most amazing games that we have had the chance to play. For those who have been wanting to give the game a try, the game is available for free on Epic Games Store.
You can just head over to the store and claim the standard edition of the game for free. However, if you are looking for the season pass that contains both DLCs, then even that is 50% off and can be yours for $7.49 which is a bargain at this point, to be honest. The information came forward earlier this day when there were rumors that Epic Games Store is going to start offering Control for free, and then the game went free only recently.
For those who are wondering about the wonderfully weird world of Control, this is an official synopsis of what the game is all about.
Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.
After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts, and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.
Honestly, I have been playing the game for some time and it is one of the best games that you can play. However, if you want to have some more reasons to play the game, it is made by the same folks who made the hit Max Payne series and Alan Wake, and not just that, the game is actually set in the Alan Wake universe.
So, head over to Epic Games Store, and claim your copy of Control.
