Control arrives on PS5 and Xbox Series X , and a next-gen upgrade will ship with the new Control Ultimate edition coming later this month.
As the name suggests, Control Ultimate Edition is all Control in one package, with the base game and all of its DLC bundled together for $ 39.99 / £ 29.99. The first DLC, The Foundation, complemented The Oldest House 's story, while AWE will forge a deeper connection between the game and Alan Wake and help complement the newly announced (but extensively teased) new connected Remedy Universe.
If you purchase the PS4 or Xbox One versions of Control Ultimate Edition, you will also be entitled to a digital copy of the game on PS5 or Xbox One respectively "when transitioning to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X ". Unfortunately, 505 Games has confirmed that this offer only applies to Control Ultimate Edition; If you own the standard version of the game for PS4 or Xbox One, you will not get a free update.
This is also the first time that Control will be released on Steam, having launched exclusively on the Epic Games Store on PC last year (you can still grab the Ultimate Edition on EGS a few weeks later if you prefer). Here are the Control Ultimate Edition release dates, broken down by platform:
