“Orders are orders – even if they come from a dead man.”
Now that is bureaucracy at its peak and finest. 505 Games + Remedy teases and tantalises us with a strange and bold trailer for their project Control, with the first DLC instalment in the series being fittingly called “The Foundation”.
Despite what the title may suggest, however, there seems to be nothing ‘terra firma’ in this bizarre and epic promo. Dope surreal concept as well. Think the movie RIPD. But better. Much better. Way better. I’m actually sad I made that comparison now.
In The Foundation, the Astral Plane is colliding with our reality. Jesse Faden, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, must travel through the caverns of the Foundation to prevent the Astral Plane from consuming the Oldest House. The missing Head of Operations, Helen Marshall, may hold some answers to the mysteries surrounding this threat. As she travels deeper, Jesse will learn more about Marshall’s disappearance, and about the enigmatic Board. The Foundation launches on March 26th on PS4. What’s more, all players will receive a FREE update, consisting of the Shield Rush upgrade and an ability to reassign all ability points! We’re also including quality of life changes, map visuals and much more!
