Control’s March Update Trailer Shows New Ability And More

Control is about to receive its first major piece of story DLC, The Foundation. But that will come alongside a major update for all players with plenty of new content whether or not you dive into the new area. A March update video shows off all the new bells and whistles.

In the video, you can see the Shield Rush ability, which gives a more aggressive option to the existing Shield ability. Rather than just gather up debris to protect yourself, you can use it to charge into enemies and close the gap in the process. A couple of quality-of-life improvements are included as well, like better map readability and a revised ability tree with a points reallocation feature. On PC the update will also include Nvidia DLSS 2.0 for RTX users. That update will be available on all platforms.

On PC and PS4 only, the game will also get The Foundation DLC on March 26. (Xbox One owners will have to wait until June 25). The Foundation has Jessie heading into a new area to stop the Astral Plane from consuming the Oldest House. The adventure will explore more weird happenings within the Department of Control, especially as revolving around the character Helen Marshall, who had been presumed missing in the original campaign.

Control was one of GameSpot’s Best Games of 2019, and received 11 nominations at the BAFTA awards. Check out our in-depth look at one of the game’s standout moments, the Ashtray Maze.
