The Epic Games mystery vault is now open, revealing this week’s free game to be CONTROL, the action-adventure game from Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games. CONTROL was first released back in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and later came to Nintendo Switch in 2020 and next-gen consoles in early 2021. Epic Games Store users can pick this title up for free from today, June 10, until June 17 at 11:00 AM EST.
CONTROL is a third-person game with impressive visuals and an immersive story.
