Remedy Entertainment takes a few opportunities throughout Control to show off the striking brutalist architecture of The Oldest House, and starting tomorrow you'll be able to capture it with your own artistic flair. (Or you can just snap pics of cool explosions.) Control's 1.04 update, dropping on October 16, will add a photo mode for free.
Announced via the Official PlayStation Blog, it looks like Control's photo mode has a fair amount of features. It'll let players change the field of view, focus distance, and aperture as one would with a real camera. The photo mode also includes a selection of built-in filters and toggles for hiding player character Jesse Faden, all other in-game characters, or both—so if you're just looking to take some moody black-and-white photos of the Federal Bureau of Control without Jesse or the Hiss in-frame, you're in luck.
Remedy previously announced that photo mode would be come to Control on all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) for free, with another free DLC called Expeditions Mode set to follow later this year. The post at the PlayStation Blog sheds a little more light on Expeditions Mode: it will feature different timed objectives with modifiers that, when completed, will grant "powerful rewards." By the time you've maxed out Control's skill tree and weapon upgrades you're pretty dang powerful as it is, but perhaps you'll need a little more oomph just to get through what Expeditions Mode throws at you.
Control is also set to receive two premium story-focused expansions in 2020. The first, called "The Foundation," seems like it will explore the cavernous realm beneath The Oldest House while the second, titled "AWE," hints at a direct crossover with Remedy's Alan Wake series.
