Check out this new gameplay video for Remedy’s upcoming action-adventure title Control.

This new video not only gives you a glimpse at gameplay, but also takes a look at the supernatural world of Control.

Set in an “ever-changing” world full of strange and unexplainable events, Control stars a gal named Jesse Faden trying to stop an “otherworldly threat.”

Here’s the synopsis:

The Oldest House is a mysterious place of power, the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control, a secretive organisation covertly nested within the web of US government agencies.

Jesse Faden arrives searching for answers just as an otherworldly force known as the Hiss attacks and kills the Bureau’s former Director.

In a mysterious ritual, Jesse is made the new Director. Now imbued with supernatural abilities and wielding the Director’s transforming Service Weapon, Jesse must take on the Hiss and take back control.

In the game, you will use a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments in your quest to take on the invading enemy.
