Xbox Free Play Days Puts Control in the Spotlight
[Plus Deals on Alan Wake Series & Quantum Break.]

Alongside the Summer Game Fest Play Days, we also have a Remedy-themed Xbox Free Play Days this weekend. If you have an Xbox Live Gold membership or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you will be able to check out Control (Standard Edition) for free across Saturday and Sunday. 

The Free Play Days session runs from Thursday, June 8th at 00:01 PDT until Sunday, June 11th at 11:59pm PDT. (Thursday, June 8th at 07:00 UTC until Monday, June 12th at 06:59 UTC.)

In addition to the free trial, Control (Standard Edition) is on sale at £7.49 (-70%). As the Standard Edition only contains the base game, you may also be interested in the two DLC packs; The Foundation and AWE, which are also -70% off (both as single DLC packs or together with the Control Season Pass). 

If you're looking for more Remedy adventures to jump into, there are some Xbox deals for you! Alan Wake (2010) is currently available at -67% off, bringing the cost to just £4.94. Alan Wake's American Nightmare is now -75% off at £1.68. And if you've yet to check out Quantum Break, the game is currently -75% off at £7.19.

Control Standard Editon Synopsis: "After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new Director struggling to regain Control.

"From developer Remedy Entertainment, this supernatural 3rd person action-adventure will challenge you to master the combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.

"Control is Jesse Faden’s story and 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. Jesse works with other Bureau agents and discovers strange experiments and secrets."
