Control ray-tracing on console debuts with Nintendo Switch

Control ray-tracing on console will debut on the most unlikely of units — the Nintendo Switch — thanks to Control Ultimate Edition Cloud Version and cloud streaming technology.

The cloud streamed game will offer up Control and all DLC at 30FPS with ray-tracing of 60FPS without ray-tracing alongside a “seamless transition between TV and handheld.” Of course, a stable internet connection is required to play.

“This is the first time ever that a Remedy game is playable on a Nintendo console! We couldn’t be happier that Nintendo Switch owners get to experience Control Ultimate Edition through the Cloud and join Jesse on her journey to becoming the Director of the Federal Bureau of Control,” said Remedy’s Communications Director, Thomas Puha. “We hope players enjoy discovering secrets and putting Jesse’s telekinetic powers to use in the weird, supernatural world we’ve created.”

Control is currently available on Windows PC via Epic Games Store and Steam, Xbox One and PS4. Control Ultimate Edition is available to purchase now on those same platforms — priced at $69.95 AUD on Xbox — and will also provide Xbox Series S & X and PS5 access later from 10 and 12 November, respectively.
