With the release date of Control fast approaching, a new launch trailer has been revealed during Gamescom 2019 in Cologne, Germany.

Remedy continues its trend of creating games with mind bending and bizarre realities with Control, a third person action game set in a world where supernatural forces are present. The otherworldly entities take over a government facility in New York tasked with containing supernatural threats known as the Federal Bureau of Control. The player takes on the role of Jesse Faden, the new Director of the Bureau, who has her own personal mission as she sets about finding her brother who was taken by the Bureau when they were children. The trailer shows Jesse as she wanders through the Bureau, set appropriately to Ruelle’s “Madness” as she falls through various dimensions and realities. Jesse has her own powers for the player to play around with as well as a weapon known as the Service Weapon, a supernatural firearm that can transform and change to the wielders will. We get a good look at the Service Weapon in the launch trailer and it looks like a particularly interesting element that make for intriguing shooting mechanics.

To celebrate the games launch, 505 Games will be hosting a charity stream in aid of St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a research hospital for various diseases and cancers affecting children. The stream will run from 8am to 4pm PDT on August 27th. It’s all to raise money for a brilliant cause so to check it out and to donate, go to the link here. Control will also be coming to PAX West next weekend from August 30th to September 2nd, so make sure to check it out if you’re attending.

Control will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows via the Epic Store on August 27th, 2019.

‘Shovel Knight’ Goes 16-Bit in first ‘Shovel Knight Dig’ Trailer

Published

on

Shovel Knight is easily among the most ambitious indie franchises out there, with numerous full-length spinoffs and extra campaigns. Today, developer Yacht Club games revealed the next entry in the wide-ranging franchise, Shovel Knight Dig, taking the famously retro series into 16-bit for the first time. The full reveal trailer can be seen below.

Shovel Knight Dig is developed in collaboration with Nitrome, a British independent studio that is best known for the numerous free browser games hosted on their website. In recent years the company has expanded towards other platforms, such as mobile and console, with their most recent project being Bomb Chicken, a platformer for PC and Switch that we loved in our review, calling it one of Nitrome’s best games yet. 

Shovel Knight Dig Game

Yacht Club notes that this collaboration has been in the works for more than a year, but also states that it’s still a long way away. Platforms are currently listed as “TBD,” but since it is confirmed to be playable at PAX West on Switch and was also featured on the PlayStation Blog, it’s certain that t will hit Sony and Nintendo’s consoles at least.

Shovel Knight Dig will feature a new story that begins when the devilish Drill Knight attacks Shovel Knight’s camp and steals his treasure, leading our hero on a quest to get his treasure back. While this story may sound par for the course for the series, it will also be a departure in terms of its gameplay, due to the addition of procedurally generated levels. Between the brand-new story, the original detailed visual style, and its randomized gameplay, Shovel Knight Dig is set to be a unique entry in the million-selling independent franchise. Here’s the full description of the game, courtesy of Yacht Club’s official website:
