Available today is the final expansion to the award-winning supernatural thriller, Control. The DLC entitled, AWE, is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
AWE sees Bureau Director Jesse Faden venture into the Investigations Sector of the Oldest House. This is where the Bureau studies Altered Word Events(AWE) – mysterious happenings where paranatural forces breach into the real world with grave consequences.
Players can access the expansion after completing the seventh main mission (“The Face of the Enemy.”) To begin the DLC players will need to enter the Investigations Sector and hunt a fearsome creature lurking deep within this abandoned part of the Bureau. In order to regain control of the Investigations Sector, Jesse will need to traverse the Altered World Events that have been investigated there.
Included in these altered events is one in Bright Falls that will dive into the reason behind the mysterious disappearance of writer Alan Wake.
There was also a free update that was automatically given to all owners of Control. This update saw many quality of life improvements, including the addition of some checkpoints to ease the late-game difficulty. There was also an Assist Mode added to the game, along with some upgrades for existing abilities.
