Control First Post-Launch Patch Rolls Out On PlayStation 4

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote about some of the player feedback that Control has received since its launch, and what the team were focused on upgrading in its mid-September patch. In that initial post, they revealed that they were aiming to fix problems related to RTX, the in-game map, motion blur, film grain, HDR, and lag.

Today, Control's first post-launch update has started rolling out! As each platform have different bugs and submission times, things can be slightly delayed for specific platforms, but if you haven't received the patch yet, it should be coming very soon! At present, the patch is currently ready for PS4 players, with XBOX and PC gamers due to be getting it shortly.

In the first patch, the dev team has tackled a number of issues that have been resurfacing in the community including issues with the PC launcher, stability, motion blur, crafting, and trophy issues.

Check out the full list below:
