CONTROL: THE FOUNDATION Is Out Now on Xbox One; Game Will Be Playable on PS5 and XSX
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
The first story DLC for Remedy Entertainment's latest title is now available for Xbox One, giving fans of Jesse Faden's gravity-defying adventures a chance to further explore the ever-changing Federal Bureau of Control.
The Foundation expansion — currently priced at $18.99, but it is also included in the game's season pass (available for $33.99) — focuses on the repercussions of the Astral Plane's collision with our reality. During her new journey, Jesse will learn more about Helen Marshall, the Bureau's Head of Operations, and her fate.
As a friendly reminder, The Foundation was released on PlayStation 4 and PC in March. For those who have already finished the DLC, the game's second major content drop — titled AWE — will launch simultaneously across PS4, XBO, and PC at some point this summer, re-introducing players to the dark world of Alan Wake.
In other Control-related news, the award-winning developer has confirmed that the supernatural action-adventure title will be playable on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X "at a later date." Considering that last year's sleeper hit still has serious frame-rate issues (even on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X), fans of Remedy who have not given Control a fair shot yet should definitely keep an eye on its next-gen ports.
With the AWE DLC finally making its debut in the near future, we should learn a whole lot more about the brand-new expansion in the coming weeks. In the meantime, take a look at The Foundation down below:
