Control is an upcoming third person shooter from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne 1 and 2/Alan Wake/Quantum Break). Although Remedy’s games are shooters, they usually incorporate some sort of interesting twist to the standard formula such as Max Payne’s bullet time or Alan Wake’s blinding flashlight.

Control is set to continue this trend, giving the player the ability to manipulate objects. Here’s a twenty minute gameplay video for those interested.

It’s a beautiful looking game. I haven’t had the chance to play Quantum Break yet, but I enjoyed Remedy’s previous titles and recommend them to fans for story driven action games. Control looks set to continue the trend and unlike Alan Wake and Quantum Break it’s coming to all three of the major platforms (Xbox One, PS4, and PC) some time this year.

Definitely reminds me of Max Payne. Slick visually and interesting vibe, though I am not sure I would pick it up right away.
