Control details pre-order bonuses, Expansion Pass

PlayStation 4-exclusive and timed exclusive content.


Publisher 505 Games and developer Remedy Entertainment have detailed the pre-order and launch day bonus content, as well as the Expansion Pass, for Control.

Pre-orders for all versions of Control include a code to download the “Tactical Response Gear” costume and “Crafting Resources Pack.” PlayStation 4 pre-orders also include a PlayStation Network avatar and the “Shifting Place” dynamic PlayStation 4 theme.

Meanwhile, all launch day PlayStation 4 copies of the game will include a code to download the “Astral Dive Suit” costume, “Rare Player Mod” (used to upgrade Jesse’s supernatural abilities in the game), “Rare Service Weapon Mod” (used to upgrade Jesse’s main weapon in the game), and the “Black Rock Quarry” and “Explorer” static PlayStation 4 themes.

The PlayStation 4-exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition will include the exclusive side mission “Isolation” and “Urban Response Gear” costume as bonus content.

Deluxe physical editions of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will include FuturePak metal packaging and five art cards.

Two post-launch expansion packs—“The Foundation” and “Awe”—containing new locations, story content, side missions, and new mods are planned. These expansions are available for purchase as part of the PlayStation 4-exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition, or separately as an Expansion Pass with both expansions bundled together, or as individual items.

The Expansion Pass and individual expansions will be available first on PlayStation 4, and arrive on Xbox One and PC at a later date, after the release of the PlayStation 4 version of the first expansion “The Foundation” in late 2019 / early 2020.

Control is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 27.
