Remedies Control are receiving a new $ 39.99 The final version packs every update and a bit of downloadable content that has been released since the game’s initial launch in 2019. It will launch on August 27 on Steam for PC, then on 10 September on Epic Games Store and both PS4 and Xbox One digital. Notably, purchasing this new console version will act as a ticket granting you a free digital upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X version via Smart Delivery when it becomes available.
That’s great and all, but unfortunately, it means that people who buy the game when it̵7;s originally released won’t get the same treatment as the next generation. According to the 505 Games publisher website, “Free upgrade path to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of.” Control only available for Control Ultimate Edition. “
Now, this game is good. It was really good. But I’m not sure I recommend that everyone buy it a second time (even with a discount) just to get the free update to the upcoming consoles. Once should be good enough. Several other studios, including EA, Ubisoft, CD Projekt Red and Bethesda, have committed to providing free updates to people who already own some of their recent and upcoming titles.
If you buy Control at the original price when it launches, for every DLC when it’s released, you’ll have to spend $ 85. I think you will get the upgrade for free. At the very least, the very high discounts on the next-generation upgrade seems to be the next best thing.
Based on VGCMicrosoft is accused of not wanting publishers to charge for next generation upgrades, suggesting that developers are working on multi-generational titles, like Control’s Ultimate Edition, will provide next generation versions for free. That’s what the 505 Games are doing technically by offering a new version of the 2019 game, but it’s a move that attracts early buyers.
