Remedy Entertainment’s Control Ultimate Edition for Xbox One and Series X|S consoles joins Game Pass today. The expanded edition bundles the base game with "The Foundation" and "AWE" downloadable contents.

Published by 505 Games, the third-person action adventure game stars protagonist Jesse Faden, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Control, an agency tasked with investigating supernatural phenomena, classified as Altered World Events.

For audio on Control, Alan Wake composer Petri Alanko and Limbo composer and sound designer Martin Stig Andersen worked in collaboration with Remedy senior sound designer Ville Sorsa. The music score is previews on SoundCloud, while a making-of video with the collaborators can be viewed on YouTube.

Previously utilized in the development of Quantum Break, Control makes use of the proprietary Northlight engine and was among the first titles to take advantage of modern graphics cards' ray tracing capabilities. Remedy has begun development on a four-player cooperative title set in the world of Control, codenamed “Project Condor.”

A 180-gram audiophile vinyl soundtrack publication was pressed by Laced Records of London. The digital edition is streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. Control is also available for Windows through Steam and the Epic Games Store, along with PS4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
