remedy the control is getting a new $ 39.99 The latest edition which brings together every update and bit of downloadable content that has been released since the game originally launched in 2019. It will be released on August 27 on Steam for PC, then on September 10 on Epic Games Store and PS4 and Xbox One digitally. In particular, purchasing this new version of the keyboard will serve as a ticket that allows you a free digital update to the PS5 or Xbox Series X version via Smart Delivery when it becomes available.
It’s great and all, but unfortunately, that means the people who bought the game when it was originally released won’t get the same treatment of the other gene. According to publisher̵7;s 505 Games page, “the free upgrade path to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of control is only available for Check out the Ultimate Edition. “
Now, this game is good. It’s really good. But I’m not sure I would recommend someone buy it a second time (even at a discounted price) just to get a free update for future consoles. Once should be good enough. Several other studios, including EA, Ubisoft, CD Project Red and Bethesda, have already committed to providing free updates to people who already own some of their latest and upcoming titles.
If you bought control at its original price when it came out, along with each DLC as it was released, you would have spent $ 85. I think this should earn you a free update. At the very least, offering a very steep discount for a next-generation update seems like the next best thing.
According to VGC, Microsoft allegedly does not want publishers to pay for next-generation updates, suggesting that developers working on cross-titles, such as Ultimate Control Edition, you should make the next generation versions available at no extra cost. This is what 505 Games is technically doing by offering a new version of the 2019 game, but it is an action that confuses early buyers.
