Control Alan Wake DLC coming in 2020

A Control content roadmap has confirmed that we’ll see Alan Wake DLC in the middle of 2020.

The DLC, titled AWE, stands for “Altered World Events,” a major component of Control’s storyline. As we’ve detailed at length in a separate post, Alan Wake is highly connected to a certain AWE in particular. If that wasn’t enough, a logo for the DLC shows a man in the woods with a flashlight. That’s totally our favourite writer.

While we wait — and that wait is going to an agonisingly long one — we can look forward to a photo mode in the next month or so, a new game mode called Expeditions in December 2019 and the game’s first expansion, The Foundation, in early 2020.

“The Expeditions game mode will [offer]… challenging new end-game content in which Jesse must help Security Chief Arish explore the mysterious Formation and its strange surroundings,” Remedy said in a press release. “Here you will face some of the greatest challenges the Oldest House has to throw at you. Expeditions will be free to all players.”

Here’s what Remedy had to say of the two expansions:

The Foundation will delve into the history of the Oldest House. At the request of the ever-mysterious Board, Jesse must explore what lies beneath the Bureau as she returns order to the Foundation and the Oldest House itself.

“The second Expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new area of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events.”

Mid-2020 can’t come soon enough.

Control is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
