Select Media Reveals First Glimpse Of Control's Upcoming Mission The Foundation DLC
[Coming To PS4 & PC on Thursday 26th]

With Control's first expansion pack, The Foundation, coming to PS4 and PC this week, select media outlets have been getting an exclusive first glimpse at the upcoming level.

Below is all of the information we've managed to collect about Jesse's upcoming mission:

The Story. "The Foundation" takes place after the events of the main game, and sees Jesse defend The Oldest House from the Astral Plane which has begun seeping through to our dimension. The mission forces the newly appointed Director to enter the caves beneath and prevent the imminent threat. Meanwhile, Helen Marshall, the FBC's Head of Operations is on her own path to follow instructions given to her from Director Trench, with possible ties to the disaster on their doorstep. In the first expansion pack, Jesse discovers more about Marshall's sudden disappearance and The Board she serves.
(Highlight to reveal).



If you have any questions regarding unlocking the upcoming mission, 505 Games' Senior Brand Community Manager, Antonela Pounder has published a comprehensive FAQ for The Foundation on the official Control website, HERE!

Early Previews For The Foundation:

Control - The Foundation DLC review: Victory Lap
PC World

As with the main game, a big part of the joy of Control: The Foundation remains seeing just how surreal and uncanny the game’s visual environments become, so it’s best to refrain from giving away too many of the bigger beats and details here.  The short version here is that The Foundation evolves a lot of what the main game sets up. You get to see more of Jesse grappling with her newfound responsibilities as the director of the bureau. You get to learn a little more about the enigmatic and extradimensional Board and the history of the Oldest House. To say anything more risks giving the game away.

Control Is Getting Some Cool New Abilities
Kotaku

Grow my little rock friends, grow! Control is full of fun paranormal powers you can use to manipulate its world. The Foundation downloadable expansion coming to PS4 and PC on March 26 adds a few more. One of them is called Shape and it lets you sprout giant barnacles to create platforms you can hop on to reach new areas.

Foundation takes place in the literal foundation of the Oldest House, a cave-like system described as a favourite vacation destination of the mysterious “janitor” Ahti, and accessible purely through a stone monolith found in the bowels of the Bureau. Playing as Director Jesse Faden, the player is tasked to the location in order to track down Helen Marshall, the hard-ass Head of Operations who disappeared in Control’s main campaign. The search for Marshall quickly gets thrown to the side as we discover that the Astral Plane is slowly seeping into our reality, and as all things at the Bureau seem to do, threatens life as we know it.

The Foundation is Set to Be a Great Reason to Return to Control 
GameSpew 

The new area introduced by The Foundation DLC is stunning to look at. Essentially an underground cave system, you could believe you’d been transported to Mars what with all the red rock. And on your way to investigate the strange disturbance – apparently the Astral Plain is seeping into the real world – you’ll notice there are some new enemy types. The Foundation likes to throw Hiss-corrupted miners at you, who deal considerable damage with their pickaxes should they make contact.
