Control’s first expansion The Foundation available now

The first expansion for Control, The Foundation, is available through the Epic Games Store and on PlayStation 4. (Xbox One players will be able to access The Foundation expansion on June 25th.) It’s time to return to the Oldest House and go even deeper to uncover its secrets.

In The Foundation, Jesse faces a new threat. The Astral Plane is leaking into the Oldest House. The mysterious Nail is broken, weakening the barriers between the Astral Plane and our reality. Jesse must travel deep into the caverns of the Foundation to repair the Nail and prevent the Bureau and the Oldest House from being consumed by the Astral Plane.

If you own the Digital Deluxe version of Control for PlayStation 4, you automatically have access to The Foundation expansion. If you own the PlayStation 4 base game or PC version from the Epic Games Store, by buying the Season Pass you will get access to The Foundation and the upcoming second expansion for Control, AWE, which will be released later this summer. Remember – to access The Foundation expansion in the game, you will need to have completed the main storyline of the game and finished the final mission, Take Control.

We’ve also released a free update for Control, for all platforms. The update includes improved map readability, the new Shield Rush upgrade to the Shield ability, a revised ability tree with the option of reallocating spent Ability Points, and other quality of life improvements. You can read the full update notes for the March update here.

A new feature released for free to PC players is the introduction of NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 technology, a new and improved deep learning neural network powered by RTX Tensor Cores that boosts frame rates and generates beautiful, sharp images. If you have an RTX card, you can see what DLSS 2.0 looks like in Control, first hand.

Because the good Control news don’t stop coming, here’s one more – the original soundtrack, awarded the D.I.C.E. Award for Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition, was released on March 24th and is available for digital streaming and purchase worldwide. You can listen to the soundtrack, composed by Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen, here.
