Control Developer Diary #5: The Key Players
Directors Old and New
[Updated With Full 10 Minute Diary Shown at NYCC 2018]

Following it's premiere at last night's Control panel at New York Comic Con, the fifth Developer Diary is now out! 

Convention attendees were treated to a ten minute special behind-the-scenes look at the game, the full edition of which will be uploaded in full to the Control YouTube channel next week, along with a recording of the panel. In the meantime, fans can see an edited edition of the dev diary right now on the Playstation Twitter page.

In the latest instalment of the dev diary series, we're introduced to directors of the Federal Bureau of Control, both old and new. We hear from Sam Lake (Creative Director), Eevi Korhonen, (Narrative Systems Designer), James McCaffrey (Actor, Zachariah Trench), and Courtney Hope (Actor, Jesse Faden) as they explore a journey filled with ulterior motives and grey characters. Like with previous episodes in the series, the latest video is also packed full of behind the scenes footage giving viewers a unique look at the game.

In case you missed it: in the first episode, the team talked about how they approached Control's world and how they changed their approach to narrative while still focusing on the story. In the second episode they delved deeper into the gameplay and allowing the player to explore their own path. In the third, the developers spoke about The Oldest House, "a world within a location". And in the fourth episode, we found out more about our protagonist, Jesse Faden.
