In addition, and as has become customary, no information was shared about Microsoft’s S Series.

If we watch the trailer we will notice how well the game runs in one of the biggest settings in this office thriller with shooter and metroidvania mechanics. The Ray Tracinog in this game is one of the most demanding in the industry, especially since there are many light sources and many reflective glass, so it leaves in a good place PS5 and Series X that the game maintains the resolution with this technology .
Control was launched in August 2019 and was a critical success but not among the audience, Remedy has not revealed the number of copies it has sold, although it did leak that Epic Games paid 10 million dollars to have the exclusivity of the game on PC for a year. The title was nominated at the Game Awards that year for Best Game of the Year and is in good standing for its graphic detail and its connecting story to Alan Wake.
Control: Ultimate Edition is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S / X on February 2 in digital format and on March 3 in physical. There will be no free updates for those who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One.
