Launch trailer for Control drops ahead of August 27 release date

More On: Control

Attendees at this year's Gamescom got a chance to see Control's cinematic launch trailer, but for those of us who weren't lucky enough to see the big reveal live we've got it here for you. 

If you're like me and you've somehow made it this far without seeing hide nor hair of Control (which, by the way, only needed the first fifteen seconds of the trailer to convince me that I wanted to buy it), here's the DL: you play as Jesse Faden, the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control who is—appropriately—struggling to regain control of Control. A third-person action-adventure game with sandbox elements, Control's combination of gunplay and supernatural abilities promises a unique experience and a deep world to explore.

To celebrate the game's launch, 505 Games will be hosting a stream on Tuesday, August 27 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM PDT in order to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. To watch or donate, check out the stream here (and you can even donate before the stream starts on Tuesday!).

Control launches on Tuesday, August 27 for PS4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally, as well as a digital version for PC via the Epic Games store.
