Remedy celebrate turning 25 by making their bloody debut free

Quick, I say Remedy, you say... well? If you said Death Rally and not Max Payne or Control, you're either a massive clever-clogs or you looked at the header of this story. To commemorate the studio's 25th birthday, the developers are making their very first game free to keep forever. Great news, if you're into bloody car combat racers from the grindhouse depths of 1996.

Control is out now on Steam, along with its Alan Wake expansion

If you've been waiting for Control's Epic exclusivity to end, well, wait no longer. Remedy Entertainment's third-person spook-em-up arrived on Steam today in the form of an Ultimate Edition containing the base game and both expansions, The Foundation and AWE. As fate (read: Remedy's marketing department) would have it, AWE launched today as well. It's the long-rumoured Alan Wake expansion, which has you exploring a…

Control’s new AWE DLC doesn’t have much Alan Wake, but it has a great monster

Control's new AWE DLC might technically stand for "Altered World Events" - the term the game's FBI-but-magic organisation The Federal Bureau of Control uses for the weird stuff they investigate - but let's be honest, we all know it's going to be remembered as the "Alan Wake Expansion". That's the theme for this second and final DLC for Remedy's third-person action-adventure, which we called an…

Control is coming to Steam this month with an Ultimate Edition

Remedy Entertainment have confirmed that their spooky interdimensional shooter, Control, will launch on Steam on August 27th. We kind of expected that this would be the case, seeing as it had a one-year Epic exclusivity deal which logically would come to an end on that date, but it's nice to finally have it official. The game will release on Valve's storefront in the form of…

Remedy are making a new game set in the Control and Alan Wake universe

For some time, fans speculated on whether Control's mentions of Alan Wake were just fun little easter eggs or hints that Remedy's two games are meaningfully set in the same spooky fictional world. Now the studio have confirmed not only that Mr. Wake will appear in Control's next expansion, but that they are already working on a new game set in a little place they're…

Control’s Alan Wake expansion comes out this month

So it is, the rumours are true. After months of speculation on whether or not Alan Wake might make an appearance in Control, Remedy Entertainment have revealed that he will indeed be in the game's next DLC, AWE. You won't have to wait long to see him either, because it releases on August 27th. For a hot second, I thought that AWE might stand for…

CrossfireX’s Xbox Showcase trailer has a DMX cover for xtra Xs

It is weird to me that the makers of Control and Max Payne are working on the singleplayer campaign of a generic-looking paramilitary FPS, CrossfireX. It is even weirder that a new trailer showing off this campaign is soundtracked by an 'epic' melancholy cover of DMX's X Gon' Give It To Ya. It is less weird that it's still not been confirmed for PC, though…

Epic will publish the next games from the devs behind Control, Limbo, and The Last Guardian

Epic Games already make an engine to build games and a store to sell the finished products, and now they're getting into the publishing game to fund development too. Today they announced a "developer-first" multiplatform publishing scheme that will fully fund games but let the devs keep creative control and ownership of the intellectual property, which is fairly rare as publishers go. They'll also promise…

Control’s Foundation DLC is out today, bringing more player choice and new secrets to find

Control's first expansion, The Foundation, is out today, inviting us to explore the underbelly of the Oldest House, and deal with whatever spooks are lying in wait. The DLC is also bringing with it some brand new abilities and more of that excellent Brutalist architecture we've all come love. Talking to RPS VidDud Matthew, Remedy even mentioned they've added a bunch hidden Easter eggs for…

Control shows off the new tricks and terrors of its first expansion

With the first story expansion for Control out next week, Remedy have released a new trailer showing more of the interdimensional horrors we'll be squishing in the Oldest House this time. Remedy say that The Foundation will explore more of the Oldest House's history as Jesse tries to fight off yet more interdimensional threats. Going by the trailer below, she has some cool new tricks…

Remedy are working on two new projects, and one is a live-service multiplayer game

Remedy Entertainment's most recent financial report released today, and while most of it is full of business-y stuff that's not particularly interesting, there are a few juicy tidbits telling us what the studio is working on. One of most exciting things the Control and Max Payne creators mentioned is that they have two brand new games in early development: one they've yet to announce, and…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Control is off on new adventures through a cursed jukebox in the Expeditions update

Remedy's spooky-ooky sci-fi shooter Control last night added the promised Expeditions mode, launched in the middle of The Game Awards, sending Jesse to fight through challenging combat arenas. That's the kind of trouble you'll get into when you go touching a cursed magical jukebox. If you want more spooky places to explore, a new way to get loot, and a whole lot of new violence,…

Observer and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare are this week’s Epic Games Store giveaways

It's Thursday again, meaning its time for Epic's ongoing cycle of free games to tick over once again. This week's offerings are grimy cyberpunk horror Observer and bizarre spin-off Alan Wake's American Nightmare. That'll be that sorted for some low-lit thrills, then. As per, you've only got seven days to grab these freebies before they slink back into the shadows from whence they came.

Epic Games Store paid £8.43 million for Control exclusive

Epic Games Store exclusives are everyone's favourite subject that nobody dreads writing about at all. Fortunately, some specific numbers have recently emerged to hopefully replace the speculation. Remedy Entertainment's Control was subject to an exclusivity deal, as we reported back in March. Epic apparently valued Control at a chunky $10.45 million (roughly £8.43 million, or almost twenty train tickets), according to recent financial report released…

The Ashtray Maze is Control at its best and worst

If it isn't obvious, the best way to experience Control is to go in blind. Don't let people on the internet spoil the surprises, because gosh, does Control lean on its surprises. It's much easier to ask interesting questions than answer them, and Control's main trick involves putting inexplicable stuff in front of you then making jokes about a paranormal bureaucracy that can't explain it.…

Control devs tease an Alan Wake crossover expansion

There's already been a lot of talk about the relationship between Remedy Games' Control and Alan Wake. Control is a game where alternate dimensions have begun creeping into our own, and among the many Easter Eggs that this narrative device allows for are a couple intriguing callbacks to our Alan. These come in the form of Altered World Events, or AWEs - those damned leaky…

Control PC performance: How to get the best settings

Like Alan Wake before it, Control is one tough customer when it comes to getting smooth PC performance. As you may have already seen in my dedicated Control RTX ray tracing guide, even some of today's best graphics cards struggle to run this eerie behemoth of a game at higher resolutions, so I thought it was high time to have a look at what all…

Control is getting more graphics options, including motion blur

If your PC's been struggling to run Remedy's new telekinetic shooter Control this past week, you may have been desperately searching for a way to turn off its rather strong motion blur effect. Alas, no such option exists right now, but the good news is that it will do very soon as part of Control's next big update.

Control RTX: A guide to ray tracing and what you need to get the best performance

Remedy's eerie telekinetic shooter Control is without a doubt one of the biggest ray tracing games you can play on PC right now. It's also one of the most demanding. Indeed, while Remedy recently revised their Control PC requirements, saying you now only need an Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card for playing with ray tracing switched on as opposed to the crazy expensive RTX 2080,…
