Redhill Games Raises $11.4 Million in Funding

Earlier this month, Redhill Games raised $11.4 million in funding from investors led by Makers Fund and Play Ventures, with fiancing from Kowloon Nights.

The funding raised will go into further development of their first game and additional company structuring such as additional staff. While they're keeping their future plans a secret, they've teased what the team has been working on, a free-to-play co-op, tactical shooter different to any other game on the market. The title is currently being soft-launched in Finland and Canada, with an expected launch next year.

Interested? You can follow the studio on Facebook and Twitter.


The studio is packed with familiar names including Matias Myllyrinne (former CEO at Remedy), Miloš Jeřábek (former Production Developer at Remedy), Mikko Uromo (former Technical Director at Remedy) and Ville Assinen (former Concept Artist at Remedy).

Redhill Games consists of a talented team of nineteen (at time of writing) from across Europe, and a dog!

Redhill is currently hiring for the following roles: Animator, Community Lead, Community Manager (EU), Concept Artist, Game Programmer, Lead Character Artist, Lead QA, Level Designer, Monetization Designer, Senior Backend Programmer. If you're interested, check out their listings, HERE

Joe Skrebels' article breaks down the weapon's various modes including grip (similar to a semi-automatic pistol), spin (burst-fire mode), shatter (similar to a shotgun), pierce (precise but like a firework), and charge (similar to a rocket launcher).

He also explains which situations best fits which mode, and the weapon's power consumption for the heavier modes.

Accompanying the article, IGN has a three-minute video demonstrating each of the modes in turn.

Control's PC Specifications Teased on Epic Store

Despite speculation, things have been rather quiet on the PC requirements side of things. While pre-orders for Control started back in March, the specifications for the game weren't discussed publically, with the additional months being needed to get the precise minimum and recommended hardware and software. That was until recently.

While Remedy hasn't confirmed or shared news of the specifications needed on their social media channels, the Epic Store has recently posted the recommendations in full at the bottom of the Control store page which has caught the attention of various media outlets including GamespotDualShockersPC Gamer, and more.

These are the PC specifications listed by the Epic Store:
Minimum RequirementsOS: Windows 7, 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i5-7500 / AMD Ryzen 3 1300X (or better)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD RX580 (or better)
For Ray-Tracking: GeForce RTX 2060
RAM: 8 GB
Direct X: DX11
Recommended RequirementsOS: Windows 10, 64-bit
Processor: Intel i5-8600K / AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (or better)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti / AMD Radeon VII (or better)
For Ray-Tracking: GeForce RTX 2080
RAM: 16 GB
DirectX: DX11 / DX12
For Ray-Tracking, the minimum is a GeForce RTX 2060, which makes Control fairly hefty to run but also delivers gorgeous visuals. You can learn more about the ray-tracing and take a look at some gameplay previews, HERE.

▼ We reached out earlier this week to Remedy to double-check the specifications needed. We'll let you know if we hear back or if the requirements are confirmed through their social media.
