Control Ultimate Edition Announced, Causes Uproar From Fans (VIDEO)
Fans were recently treated to a teaser trailer that showed Alan Wake coming to Control, as well as the news that the Remedy Connected Universe is officially in full swing. That said, the developers have now announced Control Ultimate Edition, which is coming to all current platforms and Steam, but fans are upset about one particular part.
Control Ultimate Edition features both of the game’s expansions, The Expeditions end game mode, Photo Mode, and all of the content that has arrived since the title originally released. To top it off, the complete package comes in at 20 dollars cheaper than just the base game, which is currently $59.99. So, what seems to be the problem? Not only are some people upset about the fact that they paid much more for what everyone is about to get for $39.99, but it has also been noted that only those with the Ultimate Edition can upgrade to next-gen console versions for free.
Needless to say, some fans are upset that they’ve purchased the game and the expansion pass, only to realize that they now have to repurchase the game if they would like to upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X versions “for free.” Some fans have politely called for Remedy to rethink this strategy. Others, not so much.
@ControlRemedy and @remedygames please, I’m asking nicely and with good heart, as fan of you guys: it’s outrageous to make us buy the game AGAIN in the CURRENT platforms to gain access to the next-gen version. What about people who just bought the Deluxe edition? Please, rethink.

For players who have not yet purchased Control, the Ultimate Edition is great. It gets you the base game, its expansions, and all other content for $40. For those who already own the title, however, this likely is not a good route to take. Here’s to hoping Remedy rethinks their strategy surrounding the upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Control Ultimate Edition will be launching on Steam on August 27th, and it will be coming to the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 10th. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
