The Foundation is ready in Control!

The wait is over. The FoundationControl’s first expansion is out now on Xbox One.

For those who know little or nothing about The Foundation, let me fill you in. The Astral Plane is colliding with our reality and it’s up to the Director to travel through the caverns to search for answers, in order to prevent it from taking over the Oldest House. Helen Marshall (Head of Operations) is nowhere to be seen but may hold key information to what’s going on. It’s over to Jesse as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Control to seek answers and prevent destruction to the Oldest House.

 

 

The Board

Accessing The Foundation is straightforward, but you’ll need to have completed the main story first. On completion, head to the Hotline Chamber, talk to the Board, travel to The Foundation via the Maintenance sector and head on through the mysterious door that leads to the depths of the Bureau.

Create and Fracture Your Surroundings

The Foundation allows our Director to put an all-new ability to use. Known as Shape, this gives Jesse the option to Create or Fracture her surroundings, which will come in handy when navigating through the caverns of the Oldest House. Create is not only beneficial with navigation in the form of crystal creation, but also proves hugely advantageous when taking down enemies in battle. (You’ll soon see what I mean) Fracture on the other hand is applied to Jesse’s trusty Service Weapon and allows players to destroy crystal formations around her. Which again, like Create, can prove hugely beneficial in battle if used at the right moment.

 

Sharpen Your Skills

While exploring the caverns beneath the Oldest House, Jesse will come up against a brand-new enemy type known as the Hiss Sharpened. Don’t underestimate their strength, the Hiss Sharpened are intelligent, quick and brutal in their attacks. These melee enemy types come armed with a pickaxe in hand, so think strategically and consider how best to use your Abilities to take them down. Our top tip? Think about Shield Rush and Levitate in particular.

Lights, Camera, Action

The latest expansion offers around 4 to 5 hours of gameplay, which includes some pretty pur-fect opportunities to explore. We’re feline optimistic that players will enjoy what The Foundation has to offer, even if certain missions feel like a dream or maybe a scene from a bad movie. I won’t tell you more than that, so good luck, keep an ear out for additional things to do and let’s move swiftly on!

 

Community Captures

The Foundation offers some incredible photo mode opportunities, so take time to stop and capture your surroundings. The games developers are looking to feature some of there favourite community captured shots on the Official Control Xbox Club over the coming weeks, so get creative and be sure to link us up to your content on social media. As a reminder, Photo Mode is easily accessible via the Options menu in-game.
