The Epic Games Store’s appropriately named Epic Mega Sale continues to roll on, and now the Steam competition revealed a truly knockout freebie to tempt you into virtual aisles. For another week, you can claim Remedy’s phenomenal Control for the low, low price of free.
If you have not been fortunate enough to perform Control however , you won’t want to miss out on this spectacular giveaway. We crowned Remedy’s supernatural experience as one of the best PC games of 2019, also it only narrowly missed out on being our choice that the greatest game of the year. It is flat-out fantastic.
“Only Remedy could have made Control,” we said in that best-of roundup. “Remedy, and its love for pulp science fiction and the paranormal, for Twilight Zone and Twin Peaks and New Weird. Remedy, and its eccentric use of live action video, its knack for picking the right licensed song for the right moment. Remedy, and its talent for creating a kick-ass shooter–a talent the studio hasn’t fully indulged since Max Payne 2.
“But mostly Remedy, and its openness to keep experimentation. Control is the culmination of two years of idiosyncrasies, preparation laid by Max Payne and Alan Wake and Quantum Break. These were flawed, but diamonds in the rough. In the titular Federal Bureau of Control, those greatest impulses finally came together in a game that plays and it’s written and vice versa, a gripping experience that blurs the lines between threatening and boring in ways that could make Rod Serling proud.”
“Control is the sport that might get people to stop asking for an Alan Wake 2,” we said in our review. “Control is really damn good.”
Enough said…almost. If you are a tech enthusiast, Control remains a showcase title for real-time ray tracing and Nvidia’s speed-enhancing DLSS 2.0 technology. Gamers, begin your benchmarks.
Control is one of those few must-play games of the past couple of decades, and this week you’ll be able to get it for free. Go do it . You won’t be disappointed.
