Remedy Entertainment’s Control is a mind-bending thriller that draws players into its enigmatic universe. It’s the company’s first game to focus on a central storyline, instead of the cinematic experiences that were found in their previous titles.
Remedy Communications Director Thomas Puha has indicated that a typical playthrough will last around 15 hours. However, it can be beaten much faster for those who complete side missions and other activities.
How long will it take to beat the game?
Control is a game that can be difficult, especially for players new to the franchise. The game did not come with an Easy Mode and there is no way to adjust the difficulty level, so it’s important that you prepare for a challenge before playing.
According to game review sites, it should take around 15 hours to beat the main story of Control. However, if you want to explore all of the side missions and uncover every secret, it will probably take you a lot longer.
Unlike Remedy’s previous games, such as Alan Wake and Quantum Break, Control is not a linear experience. You are free to roam around The Oldest House and encounter various events. This makes it hard to give an accurate estimate on how long the game will last. However, using data from playtime aggregate site How Long To Beat, we can see that the average completion time is about 20 hours.
How long will it take to complete the side missions?
There are a number of side missions in Control that players can take part in. These are typically non-combat based missions that do not impact the player’s progress in the main story. These missions may have a variety of prerequisites including reaching a certain level of relationship with a character, completing another mission, or having a specific item at hand. Players can find these missions by visiting the Mission sub-menu in the main menu. The Foundation and AWE DLC adventures will also add some additional side missions for players to complete.
It’s important to note that completing all of the side missions in Control will significantly increase the game’s overall play time. This will likely be an issue for some players that are attempting to earn all of the available achievements and trophies.
