If you live in America and you're an AT&T customer, the service has recently added Control Ultimate Edition to its list of free cloud-streamed games available to members! The option is available to those with an AT&T postpaid mobility plan. 

The game joins Batman: Arkham Knight which launched for subscribers last year, using Google Stadia technology. While the Rocksteady title is a PC-only game, both mobile and PC owners can visit the FBC in the new addition. The introduction of games as part of their service is in part to showcase the power of their internet stability and performance, allowing them to stream demanding games without lag. 

To check out the game, customers will need to visit att.com/PlayNow, enter their phone number and billing zip code associated with their AT&T mobile account and start playing.

Remedy Shares HQ Alan Wake 2 Concept Art Teased in Anniversary Update Video

This week, Remedy shared high-quality versions of some of the Alan Wake 2 concept artwork we saw in the recent anniversary update! 

Until now, the community relied on screenshots from the YouTube video, and while the quality options gave us a pretty decent option, it's always best to get the originals. There was one piece of artwork that didn't appear on Imgur, where the company uploaded the selection; that was artwork set in what looks to be a sewer and highlighting a potential threat, NPC or enemy.

Excitingly, we also got a glimpse of where the artwork is set by the descriptions on Remedy's Imgur listing. From the text, it looks like we are returning to the place where it all began...

"Dark Place, Payphone"

"Dark Place, Streets"

"Dark Place, Hotel Rooftops"

"Cauldron Lake Forest"
