During the State of Play today, Remedy Entertainment has announced the release date of the second DLC of Control, called AWE.
The second expansion called AWE takes Jesse into a new area of the Oldest House, the Investigation Sector, where the FBC scrutinizes Altered World Events. The Bureau investigates the most dangerous Altered World events in this lost sector. The records were sealed, all objects locked up, and their powers relinquished. Now the security of the sector has been breached and the properties are free. AWE contains new story content and side missions as well as new weapons and mods for the control world.
It is also worth mentioning that the expansion is dedicated to Alan Wake, from which it takes the name “Alan Wake Expansion”, where we will see the same settings as Alan Wake.
At the moment we do not have new details about what we will see in the expansion, since the footage that has been shown does not reveal too much. What we are clear about is that we should not skip this piece of the story that will connect two of the most important licenses of this studio.
The AWE expansion of Control will be available later this month, for now only on PS4, more precisely on August 27. It will also be released on Xbox One and PC, where it will leverage the same Ray Tracing RTX technologies seen on the original game.
Recall that Control is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and will arrive later for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. According to a job listing, Control Sequel could be also in development.
