Control, Remedy’s dark, strange third-person shooter, is free on the Epic Games Store.

Update: June 17, 2021

Today is the last day to get the amazing Control for free on the Epic Games Store. Quickly, get on that. Seriously! What are you waiting for?

Original story: June 10, 2021

Just in time for the Loki premier, the 2019 shooter – which also has an affinity for ‘70s office aesthetics and shadowy government organisations – is up for grabs on the Fortnite maker’s launcher. Follow this link for a brutalist blast.

Control was one of our favourite games of 2019 (and the 2010s as a whole), and for good reason. The action game’s setting, the imposing Oldest House, is one for the ages. And the telekinetic powers and shape-shifting guns that protagonist Jesse gains over the course of the game’s 15-hour runtime are a blast to fool around with.

This game has some of the best particle effects and physics simulation we’ve ever seen. It’s sure to look great on PC, especially if you’ve managed to nab one of the graphics cards Nvidia has launched since Control’s debut.

Genshin Impact, which is always free, is also listed right now among the free games on Epic. No hurry on that one, though.

As usual, you’ll need an Epic account to claim your free game. That requires an email address and a credit card on file.

Next week, Epic is offering two more freebies: Hell is Other Demons and Overcooked 2.
