Community Spotlight: The Community's Control Creations

Since it's reveal last week, Control has gotten quite a bit attention from the international gaming community. While the media has been covering the game and reveals from the show floor, fans have been celebrating the announcements from home. Some have put thoughts to words through their blogs, others posted their opinions on social media, and for some they've picked up their tablets or pencils to create stunning fan art.

Here's a collection of some of the amazing creations that have been posted by the Remedy community in response to Control's reveal. 



Long time Remedy fan, Patrick from PayneReactor has created a specialised hub for the game on his website. The hub features a lot of information on the title including official screenshots, story information, trailers, interviews and more. 

In other fansite news, our friends at ComunidadRemedy also wrote an in-depth post announcing the reveal on their website, compiling everything we know so far. You can check it out below:



We also have a wonderful trove of fan art including this beautiful piece by Carla, featuring all of the Remedy protagonists responding to Jesse Faden's recent arrival. This was one of the first pieces of Control artwork posted just a few hours after the trailer went live.



Toey makes incredibly cute fan art, and the latest piece, inspired by Control's arrival, is definitely no exception. Like Carla, Toey's Jesse crashes into the piece taking Max, Alan, and Jack by surprise. Their reactions are gold.



If you're active in the Remedy community, chances are that you've already heard about Katerina (also known by her username @SeaCat2401). She's a wonderful person who has created the deviantArt page, RemedyEntertainment, a group which celebrates the artistic creations of the fandom. In tribute to Control's reveal, she's created a dedicated folder for the game and created her own special piece.



Another fan quick after the reveal was cosplayer Emme-Gray, who created the first Control cosplay, portraying Jesse in a perfect photoshoot. It's great to see her cosplaying Remedy games again, after her Alan Wake and American Nightmare projects a few years ago. For more of her work, make sure to check out her deviantArt page!



Melissa (also known as melfpic) is also an incredibly active fanartist in the community, producing a wonderful series of digital artwork inspired by Quantum Break. Recently she turned her attention to Control with another gorgeous piece.



Another great piece of Control fan art on Instagram is made by Isidora (username, ette_lette) showcasing Jesse's shield telekinetic ability. The piece is both stylised and stylish with a perfect use of the game's colour scheme.



Speaking of stylised pieces, AG's (@ag_aagee on Twitter) Control artwork is beautifully bold with eye-catching reds and blacks in a faithful lineart sketch of the protagonist. Jesse looks so good!


Our final spotlighted piece for today comes from Greg (@grigouips on Twiter) whose stunning Jesse-inspired piece is part of a collage featuring Amicia from A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Ellie from The Last of Us II in tribute to E3 2018's heroines.


If you've created Control fan art, let us know! We'd love to feature it! You can get in contact through email at jadenmorretti@yahoo.com, on our Facebook page (TheSuddenStop), or our Twitter account (@TheSuddenStop).

Day 3 of E3 2018 / Final Day! [Updated 16/6]
[All the Interviews!]

We're into the home stretch! With E3 drawing to a close and developers returning home, it's time to reflect on the final day of announcements and exclusives.

The last day brought a crazy amount of interviews with Control's writers, with Sam and Anna talking to Shacknews, IGN, GameInformer, and GameReactor. Naturally there's going to be a lot of articles posted in the coming week once the jetlag settles a little, and we'll compile those in a post-E3 article next week.

In the meantime, check out the previews below for more Control-goodness!

Supernatural shooter 'Control' gets first gameplay footage from E3 2018
     Windows Central
"While the trailer teased some gameplay, it didn't give us a better look at the mechanics. Luckily, an interview after the PlayStation E3 2018 briefing provided a lot of answers. Control definitely looks like an evolution of Quantum Break and hopefully it'll be more successful than the latter. The gameplay is very similar, but instead of time-manipulation powers you're blessed with telekinesis."

TrueAchievements Catches Control's Online Co-Op Label

The lovely folks at TrueAchievements had eagle eyes to catch a surprise announcement for Control coming from its XBOX store page. It turns out that Remedy's upcoming game may feature online co-op.

As the teaser was revealed (what looks to be accidentally) through the XBOX site, it doesn't go that much further into talking about the online co-op function than in the list of "capabilities". It could be that both players are Jesse Faden, or neither players as her if it's a different story mode. Personally I like the idea that one plays as Jesse and the other plays as Steve from Accounting who is just REALLY INTO lizards so much so that The Hiss was like "....ehhhh I'm good, I've corrupted just so many people already, I'm a bit knackered."

We'll have to wait until Remedy and 505Games are ready to announce the feature officially, but if it does go ahead, it would make Control the first AAA Remedy to feature multiplayer. The only title previously released from the studio to offer multiplayer has been Death Rally in 2011, which allowed players to compete against friends.

For more information, check out TrueAchievements article, HERE.

Thank you to TrueAchievements for the catch and to their lovely Feature Editor and Remedy nerd, Mark, for the heads up!

Official Control Screenshots [Released for E3 2018]

Following Control's reveal this week, Remedy and 505Games published the first series of official screenshots taken from their E3 2018 press demo being shown behind closed doors this week.

The screenshots feature the game's protagonist, Jesse Faden, the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, as she encounters an evil supernatural force called The Hiss which has corrupted the FBC's agents turning them against her, (tsk, Mondays) in addition to the agency itself. The FBC is home in what is described as "the oldest house", a building with brutalist architecture and a world within a complex, holding objects of power. It's a weird and exciting concept and while we haven't seen too much of the game so far, the screenshots and extended gameplay gives a teaser of how unique this title will be.

Official Synopsis: "Control is Jesse Faden’s story. The main plot focuses on her personal search for answers as she grows into the role of the Director. The world of Control has its own story, as do the allies Jesse meets along the way. Side-quests and Secrets are everywhere. Jesse works with other Bureau agents, decodes cryptic ciphers and discovers strange Bureau experiments."
