Control’s Latest Update Improves Stability and Allows Removal of Motion Blur

Here are all the changes you can expect to see in Control's latest update.

505 Games and Remedy just released Control a few short weeks ago, and now, the game has received its first major post-launch patch.

The monthly update for Control brings with it a lot of initial changes that we typically see from many other games after launch. Various bugs have now been fixed in addition to improved stability across all platforms. Frame rate specifically has also been said to have been optimized.

Likely the biggest change for me here though is that motion blur can now be toggled on and off freely in addition to film grain. Personally, I’ve never liked motion blur and any time I can turn that feature off I’m happy.

For now, this patch has started to roll out only for PS4 users. While Xbox One and PC players will have to wait a bit longer, Remedy says it’ll be showing up “very soon.” Keep an eye out in the coming day or so to see more of when it might be coming to those platforms.

Below you can check out the full list of changes that Control has now received. If you’re looking to pick the game up, it’s available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC right now.
