Remedy have officially unveiled their post-launch plans for Control, with two brand new paid expansions and a free DLC pack all being on the roadmap, as well as potential Alan Wake cross-over.

Remedy has revealed the DLC roadmap for Control, with both a Photo Mode and new game mode dubbed "Expeditions" lined up for later this year.

It all starts this fall with the release of the photo mode, coming to all players for free. This heavily suggests Control and Alan Wake are set within the same fictional universe.

The Photo Mode is out first in autumn 2019, but hasn't yet got a release date.

Control was released last month for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. This new mode is created to offer challenging end-game content to all players, as you and Security Chief Arish attempt to explore the mysterious Formation. Both of these will be offered as free DLC, before two paid expansions arrive in 2020.

In addition, Remedy has been working on the new game mode, Expeditions. The acronym in English of the second expansion connected to the Season Pass, AWE, and the image that accompanies the announcement seem to reinforce the mysterious link between Control and Alan Wake. You can also see Alan Wake in the W of the expansion. Thus, by a petition of the Board, Jesse explores what lies in the very core of the Oldest House. Our own review was highly positive, praising the game as a marvel both in terms of story and technology. Expect things to get weird. This will take Jesse into the Investigations Sector of The Oldest House, where the Bureau examined Altered World Events.

What did you all think of Control? Hell, the font is even the same as the one used for Alan's journey and looks to mimic the box art.

Each Expansion will also be available to purchase individually at release, and the Season Pass and individual Expansions will be available for purchase on Xbox One and PC, following the PlayStation 4 Expansion 1 "The Foundation" release.
