Latest News: Epic Games Store freebie train rolls on, adding Control to the latest free downloads list today!

The hugely popular Sci-Fi shooter from Remedy is now available on EGS as a free download, but be quick, the limited time offer only runs until Thursday, June 17.

Here’s the download link for anyone interesting in getting Control from Epic Games Store without spending a single dime!

Epic Games Store Adds Control To Latest Free Download List

At 4 pm UK time, the Epic Games Store will be updating its promotional download list with hugely popular Sci-Fi shooter, Control. According to Twitter sources, ‘Control will be free to download – with Hell is Other Demons and Overcooked! 2 being next week’s additions.’

Control was originally released back in August of 2019, receiving several expansions since that date – including The Foundation DLC and AWE DLC. Furthermore, an Ultimate Edition of the game was released last year.

“Set in a unique and ever-changing world that juxtaposes our familiar reality with the strange and unexplainable, Control  is a third-person action-adventure game combining Remedy’s trademark gunplay with supernatural abilities.

After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, players will take on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director struggling to regain Control. This sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience built on the proprietary Northlight engine challenges players to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through the deep and mysterious worlds Remedy is known and loved for.”

The initial leak was brought to light in a post on Reddit, where German website mdealz.de suggested the game would be free for download imminently. The German website has leaked rumours of EGS promotions in the past, with many being accurate.

Control, A Mind-bending Shooter

For those new to Control, gamers can expect an immersive Sci-Fi experience where users control Jesse Faden’s story and her personal search for answers. The world of Control has its very own story, as do the allies Jesse encounters during her mission.

The game has won numerous awards, including coveted Golden Joystick, The Game Award, and BAFTA gongs.

Whether you’ve played the game or not, it’s currently free on EGS and offers up exciting gameplay that ticks a lot of the right boxes.
