Control DLC Will Not Be PS4 Exclusive for Long; Developer Discusses Epic Deal

Control

Remedy Entertainment has opened up about some of the exclusivity deals the company has made regarding Control and its post-launch content.

In an interview with Wccftech, Thomas Puha, community director at the developer, noted that the exclusivity period for Control‘s expansion packs on PlayStation 4 will not be very long and that the game’s publisher, 505 Games, would know more about the details of deal with the Epic Games Store for PC.

Puha elaborated further on the PS4 exclusive content:

So there’s one exclusive mission in the digital deluxe PS4 version, and then the expansion pass is kind of tied to that. But outside of that, one costume, the side mission, and the digital themes, the game is the same on all platforms, and all the expansion pass will be available on all platforms, but I can’t say what the exclusivity window is, except it’s not very long. So, again, we’re consumers as well at Remedy and the core game is the same for everybody. Again, many publisher and business reasons for doing certain things.”

He also spoke about the decision to go exclusive on the Epic Games Store for PC:

“You’d have to talk to the publisher about that. There’s been a long relationship between Epic and Remedy, and whenever these disruptive kinds of things happen, some people are upset. From our perspective, I mean, we’re consumers as well. So I mean, we get some of the frustration, but at least from Remedy’s perspective, we’re still multiplatform. You know, you can still play the game on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One. I think the main concern for us is; let’s just make Control as good as it can be. Right? That’s the main thing. We are worried about making the game as good as it can be.”

Remedy has a history of working with Microsoft, producing games such as Alan Wake for the Xbox 360 and Quantum Break for the Xbox One. However, middling sales of the latter title on both Xbox and PC was most likely a factor for Remedy to go multiplatform with Control.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
