One of the best video games of 2019, Control, is free for PC on the Epic Game Store launcher this week, and it’s not the only one.
Control is a supernatural action-adventure game in which you play as Jesse Faden, a member of a secret government agency that investigates paranormal events and artifacts. You explore a large, ever-changing government facility, opening up new avenues as you gain new powers and weapons. It’s basically like X files meets Metroid Prime more Half-life, and he reigns.
And now, Control is completely free on the Epic Games Launcher until 11 a.m.ET on June 17. Note that this is the base version of the game released in 2019, not the full 2020 edition; you’ll still need to purchase the additional DLC content separately if you decide you like it enough to have the cash.
