Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games’ Control is GameInformer’s cover story this month, so a lot of new information is coming out about the title. In a Rapid Fire questions video posted today, which you can watch below, Game Director Mikael Kasurinen answered a wide variety of serious and joke questions in order to reveal more about the game. While he was able to confirm that Control will be getting DLC, he did reveal that two common features won’t be making the cut at release.

As you read in the title, neither a photo mode nor new game plus will be included in Control at launch. When it came to new game plus, all Kasurinen had to say was a swift “no.” Considering Control does feature a skill tree and is much more nonlinear than previous Remedy Entertainment titles, that kind of mode could’ve made sense. That being said, it clearly doesn’t seem to be on the developer’s docket at this time.

When asked about photo mode, Control’s Director responded with “not for release.” Control’s interesting physics and the strange environments are visually striking, so the inclusion of a photo mode would probably lead to some really cool player-created screenshots around the game’s release. Fortunately, Mikael Kasurinen’s comment seems to suggest that idea for photo mode coming post-launch is at least on the table over at Remedy Entertainment.

Control is currently set to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One later in 2019. To learn more about the game, you can check out DualShockers’ preview of the title as well as our own interview with Mikael Kasurinen.
