Watch Us Play Nearly 30 Minutes of Control with RTX Enabled
Check out what Control will look like on PC with ray tracing.
Ahead of Control’s release next month, we were recently able to go hands-on with the game for an extended period of time. Luckily, we were also able to capture the footage from that gameplay session that we can now share with you.
As you’ll see in our footage, this demo allowed us to get more acquainted with the main gameplay mechanics of Control in addition to exploring the world. If you haven’t seen much of Control so far, this video should give you a better idea of how the game will be structured and how the world is put together. Unlike Remedy’s past games, Control won’t be completely linear and will instead be a bit more open-ended allowing you to traverse about the world to find secrets and take on secondary tasks.
Perhaps most notable about this footage though is that we played on PC and were able to utilize RTX, otherwise known as ray tracing. This feature is newer in the PC space and it makes the visuals to games that you’re playing look all the more impressive. Control will boast RTX functionality when it launches and you can get a look in this video of what those improved graphics might look like.
It’s worth pointing out though that if you’re checking out this video as it goes live, the footage probably won’t look too hot. Per usual, YouTube will have to process this for a bit until you’ll be able to watch the video at its highest possible quality. So don’t blame us, blame the YouTube overlords.
And to throw in my two cents since I was the one playing this demo, I actually really enjoyed it. I’m a sucker for most of Remedy’s games but I found Control to not only be a ton of fun to play but also continued to intrigue me when it comes to how the world design is structured. I’m really looking forward to the full release quite a bit.
