Control, the third-person action adventure game from Remedy Entertainment, is getting its Photo Mode tomorrow, the developer has announced.
The games Photo Mode, which was first announced last month as part of the games post-launch content plans, will give players the chance to “express your creativity and put your mark on the world” by “capturing the moments that matter to you”. Once players have downloaded the games 1.04 update, the Photo Mode will become accessible through the Options Menu.
When players access Photo Mode they will be able to use the Left and Right Thumb Sticks to maneuver the camera around, while L2/Left Trigger and R2/Right Trigger will pan it up or down. Players will also be able to broaden or tighten the field of view, change the focus distance, adjust the aperture and determine the depth of field, and roll the camera by degrees while pointing it at the same subject. There will also be a number of filters available through a tab in the Photo Mode menu, and you’ll even be able to hide characters from your pictures. Remedy is encouraging players to show off their photography skills on social media using the hashtag #ControlRemedy.
Remedy concluded their Photo Mode announcement by teasing the next bit of post-launch content that will be coming to Control, which will be a free new mode called Expeditions. These Expeditions were previously vaguely described as a “challenging end-game mode”, but today’s announcement gave away a little bit more detail. In Expeditions, players will have to complete different objectives within a set time to get powerful rewards while simultaneously navigating different modifiers which “make the encounter extra tricky”. Remedy didn’t give an exact date for when Expeditions will be releasing, but they did confirm that it will be at the end of this year.
Control’s Photo Mode will become available tomorrow, Wednesday 16th October, as part of the games 1.04 update.
