If you haven’t played Control, Remedy Entertainment’s critically-acclaimed game, you’ve been missing out. The new weird action-adventure title has been a blast to play, and its two expansions — The Foundation and AWE — have only given fans more content to dive into.
With the announcement of Control Ultimate Edition, though, you don’t have to worry about missing out on one of the best games in recent memory. The package comes with the base game and its two pieces of DLC, and it will be dropping on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC very soon.
