You know the game Control, right? Well, the game by Remedy Entertainment that’s currently an Epic Games Store exclusive is reported to last up to 15-20 hours in length. The “hybrid” third-person shooter is slated to hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 27th, 2019.
I’d be shocked if Control didn’t feature current year politics or some form of connotations that allude to the usual SJW rhetoric. However, I’m more than sure the game will follow suit in the typical propaganda, but I digress.
As of recent, gamingbolt.com published an interview piece citing Mikael Kasurinen and Brooke Maggs — director and narrative designer on Control — talking about how long the game will run.
The pair told the publication site that though they don’t have exact “numbers” as of now given the fact it’s a “complicated, large game” and “can be played through in multiple ways,” it could take players 15-20 hours to beat the main campaign.
It’s worth noting that that example of the game’s length includes doing “a few side missions.”
However, the two devs do not make mention of player skill and whether or not players with skills that are opposite of Dean Takahashi will be able to finish faster or not.
What is clear is that the game in question is meant to be played multiple times rather than once, although the former and latter options are entirely up to how glitchy and polished Control pans out at launch and if it’s a fun game to play.
While we wait to see if Control will be affected negatively by the Epic Games Store timed exclusive deal and if it will perform like Metro: Exodus on PC where Lars Wingefors — founder and CEO of THQ Nordic — didn’t even want to talk to investors about PC sales, the third-person shooter is slated to hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 27th, 2019.
