Control Foundation collectibles guide: Subterranean Research

Control Foundation, the game’s first real piece of meaty DLC, has finally landed on Xbox One after a release months ago on Windows PC and Xbox One. This guide will help gamers on all platforms earn the Subterranean Research Achievement or Trophy for picking up all in-game collectibles.

While we did a great job detailing a number of Foundation‘s puzzles, we’re relying on Platinum Chaser’s excellent video below to find all 43 collectibles. Enjoy!
