Control is free this week on the Epic Games Store

The latest freebie from the Epic Games Store is live, and it's Remedy's Control.

Multiple award-winning Control is free right now on the Epic Games Store until June 17.

This is just the standard edition of the game, not the Ultimate Edition.

In the supernatural third-person action-adventure game, you play Jesse who is trying to navigate an “ever-changing” world full of strange and unexplained events caused by an otherworldly threat.

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.

Here’s a quick recap of the story:

The Oldest House is a mysterious place of power, the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control, a secretive organization 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.

Also available this week on the Epic Games Store is the debit of Genshin Impact. If you want to give it a try, we have plenty of guides and tips on getting started s well as plenty of updates regarding the latest content.
