Rich at GameSpew: 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment have released a content roadmap for Control. Is it teasing an Alan Wake crossover? We sure hope so.
Huh..?! Someone say Alan Wake? Give me all your weird Remedy! Maybe this can serve as a portal to a new AW? Anything new AW is awesome.
If you're an Alan Wake fan, for sure, play Control. Builds on the world of Alan Wake.
I wasnt very excited for control but when I heard its intertwined with AW somehow I'm sold. Waiting for the photo mode patch.
Oh shit! I cant wait for this then. Now if they can make a tease for Quantum Break in there, that would be awesome.
IIRC Quantum Break IP is still owned by MS, Remedy only managed to get Alan Wake back.
Yea i know, but since MS doesnt seem to be doing anything with QB, they should just give the rights to QB to Remedy.
Alan Wake is very much part of Control. There is a note in the game that mentions the incident of the Bright fall as an Altered world event. Unfortunately, Control has a great world but a mediocre story.
I thought the story was great, the acting not so much.
The story was fine and fun. It wasn't trying to be anything more than what it was and that's perfectly okay.
There's about 5 notes and even goes into current AW. I personally loved Control from start to finish.
I loved Control, and I absolutely loved Alan Wake. Fun fact, Darling actor from Control is also the voice actor for Alan Wake.
Which is even better when you realise it's actually him singing Dyna-mite
And perhaps slightly more obviously, Trench is voiced by James McCaffrey (Max Payne).
I think everyone would of spotted that voice. That voice is iconic and unique. Love Remedy.
There are plenty of previous actors from Remedy's past games in Control such as: - Jesse's actor played Beth Wilder in Quantum Break - Trench's actor played Max Payne in Max Payne and Thomas Zane in Alan Wake - Dylan's actor played Nick Masters in Quantum Break The only one missing is Jack Joyce's (main protag of Quantum Break) for this game but he most likely busy with Man of Medan.
That's awesome to hear *Spoilers* I hope they still let Alan Wake have some of it's own story, it was awesome to see the The Clicker and Typewriter may have been Objects of Power causing Altered World Events but I'm hoping the deal with the darkness is that they have their own mythos and come from a completely different world from the Hiss. I'd like to see them becoming a bigger threat then them.
Need more Alan Wake in my life.
Alan wake was up there as the best 360 exclusive last Gen great game seriously deserves a sequel
Anybody played PS4 version after performance patch?
It's a bit better, still lags when you unpause the game
Ahh i see thanks for replying
I'd say it's a fairly strong teaser. The font looks to be identical to the font used for Alan Wake. So, unless Remedy just really loves using a certain font, it's a hint.
It's not just the font, the wording is AWE (guessing alan wake expansion) the image inside the font is pretty much exactly the same, the trees the figure with the torch. It's a teaser for sure.
AWE stands for Altered World Events in Control which has a connection to the events of Alan Wake.
Ahh yeah my bad. Cant wait to see where this goes.
Good catch! I thought about buying the season pass since I enjoyed control so much but 2020 is stacked for me. By the time I get around to the control dlc it will be dirt cheap.
Did you actually play the base game? There are some files you can pick up that talk about the Alan Wake incident confirming that Control is in the same universe as Alan Wake, hell they even mention the book series Alan Wake was writing prior to his writers block and even Thomas Zane.
