It might seem quite surprising to read that Remedy's Control has been out for three years; that's because for Switch owners specifically, the game came out in October 2020, a little over a year after its initial release in August 2019. Nevertheless, Remedy is celebrating the bizarre action-adventure title with a rather special fan event (or "Altered-World Fan Event", if you like).
The main attraction is an event called "Fans Ask the Fadens", in which fans have been provided an opportunity to submit questions to actors Courtney Hope and Sean Durrie, who play Control characters Jessie Faden and Dylan Faden respectively. Questions will need to be provided in video form and can be submitted via Remedy's official website; be sure to take note of the restrictions in the image below and submit your question before September 1st!
Additionally, Remedy will be showcasing select pieces of fan art and screenshots, which you can submit via 505 Games' community hub. A few pieces are already available to view, so you can get an idea of what kind of artwork might get featured. Finally, Remedy's merch store is celebrating Control's anniversary with a 25% off sale, including t-shirts, posters, and a pretty sweet over-sized mouse mat.
Control launched on the Switch as a Cloud release back in 2020. Although many understandably take umbridge with Cloud games, we nevertheless enjoyed the experience, with our review stating that "Remedy's skill when it comes to creating a highly-detailed game-world is world-class, and the gloriously dynamic combat is second-to-none".
