Control, the mysterious psychological superhero shooter, will receive its long-awaited PlayStation 5 release on 2nd February – initially only on the PS Store. Those of you looking to buy a physical copy will have to wait until 2nd March, when it’ll be available on Blu-ray as well. Remember, if you already own the title on the PlayStation 4, you’ll only be eligible for a free upgrade if you purchased the Ultimate Edition.
Control Ultimate Edition comes to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S with a 60fps Performance Mode and 30fps Graphics Mode (with ray-tracing)
While we work on the full trailer, enjoy a sneak peek of both modes, recorded on PS5.

The game itself will feature two graphical options, as demonstrated above. Performance Mode will target 60 frames-per-second, while Graphics Mode will feature ray tracing. It’s the same configuration as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – although the Insomniac Games superhero spin-off has since raised the bar, adding a Performance Ray Tracing option that offers the best of both worlds. Hopefully that’s something developer Remedy can add in later on.
