Control from developer Remedy Entertainment and publisher 505 Games has, as of today, officially gone gold after 3 years of development, and to mark the occasion, a new story trailer for the game, which can be seen below, was unveiled by Gamespot.
Control was officially revealed at E3 2018 and it has been stated by the developers that their main focus for this title is to craft a world rich enough for players to be able to create their own stories rather than deliver a singular linear narrative.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Steam:
