Control Will Join Xbox Game Pass for PC This Week
All PC subscribers of Xbox Game Pass will be able to play Remedy Entertainment's Control for free as of this Thursday.
Over a month after its arrival on Xbox Game Pass for consoles, now Control is about to join the Xbox Game Pass library on PC on January 21st.
As one of the critically-acclaimed titles of 2019, Remedy’s Control will officially make its way to next-gen consoles next month with an Ultimate Edition containing all the post-launch expansions of the game. However, if you are already an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can play the base game for free on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S, and from January 21st, you can play it on PC as well.

In case you don’t know about the game so much, Control is a third-person shooter where you take the role of Jesse Faden in the bizarre building of the Federal Bureau of Control in search of an answer for all the mysterious events that you have experienced in your life.
As you make progress in the game, you encounter various strange phenomenons inside the building, and soon, you turn into the director of the Bureau without having a choice. Your mission is to wipe out the persistent presence of an evil creature called Hiss from the building and try to unfold the mysteries of your personal life in the meantime.
Control was launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019, but it’s available on Switch as well, and 505 Games is planning to launch it on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in February. If you want to play it through the Xbox Game Pass subscription, you have a chance to earn one month of the service’s subscription for only $1.
Remedy Entertainment is currently working on multiple projects, including a story-driven single-player campaign for CrossFire X. On the other hand, with Control and Alan Wake both set in the same universe, it seems the studio’s main project is a new game to expand this universe with more adventures.
