Here’s a look at the first 15 minutes of the AWE expansion for Control.

This week, Remedy showed off the Control expansion AWE in a live stream. You can watch the first 15 minutes of the upcoming content below.

AWE takes place in the abandoned Investigations Sector in the Oldest House. In it, you will go up against Alan Wake’s darkness creatures and other enemies. You will explore Altered World Events (AWE) to take the sector back.

Here’s the blurb:

The Bureau studied its most dangerous Altered World Events in this lost sector. The records were sealed, the objects contained, and their powers abandoned. Now, the sector is breached and the objects are loose.

The content also brings Surge to the Service Weapon which fires sticky grenades. Arcade machines will allow you to access modes such as horde and time trial.

AWE comes to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 27. It will also be included with the Ultimate Edition which arrives on Steam the same day.

This edition will also come to the Epic Games Store, PS4, and Xbox One digitally on September 10. It will be followed by a physical release for consoles around the end of this year.

If you purchase the edition, you will be handed a next-gen optimized version for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X at no extra cost in late 2020. You will need to purchase this edition of the game to receive the upgrade.
