One of 2019’s best video games, Control, is free for PC at the Epic Game Store launch this week – and it’s not the only one.
Control is a supernaturally colored action-adventure game where you play as Jesse Faden, a member of a secret government agency that investigates paranormal events and objects. You explore a large, ever-changing government facility, and unlock new avenues as you earn new powers and weapons. It’s basically like X-Files meetings Metroid Prime plus Half life, and it controls.
And right now, Control is completely free on Epic Games Launcher until 11 ET on June 17th. Note that this is the base version of the game released in 2019, not the full version from 2020; You still have to buy the extra DLC content separately if you decide you love it enough to post cash.
