Remedy has announced that the latest update for Control has released for PS4 today, and is set to release for other platforms soon. As expected, the patch rolls out a range of bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as enhancements to the game's user interface.

Stability across all platforms has been boosted, which is very good news, while "general frame-rate performance" has also been optimised, and map loading times have also been improved to ensure that all of the relevant information pops up as soon as you bring it up.

The touted motion blur and film grain on/off toggle options have also been added, and a range of issues we weren't even aware of have also been addressed. The Control update is available for PlayStation 4 now, and will be rolling out on Xbox One and PC soon.

  • Bug and crash fixes to missions, combat and overall game play


  • Improved title stability on all platforms
  • Improved general frame-rate performance through optimisations made to multiple systems and content


  • Improved map loading times (map will no longer tease information)
  • Motion Blur On/Off toggle added to Options menu
  • Film Grain On/Off toggle added to Options menu
  • Fixed incorrect UI behaviour on ultra-wide monitors (PC)
  • Fixed multiple issues when incorrect subtitles are shown for multiple languages
  • Fixed issue when the game centers the aim on Jesse’s head
  • Fixed multiple UI related issues


  • Fixed an issue when player could not acquire ‘Pierce Charging Efficiency’ and ‘Spin Grouping Efficiency’ upgrade
  • Fixed issue when Crafting Charge and personal Mods would not give the Weapon/Mod but take the materials (Sorry. The Board was greedy)
  • Fixed issue that prevented players activating the Pierce weapon form upgrade
  • Fixed issue when Jesse is unable to cleanse the ‘Transit Corridor South’ Control point upon returning from Prime Candidate Program area in the mission The Face of the Enemy
  • Fixed an issue when Heptonstall would not spawn during certain story missions in the “Old Friends” side-mission (still looking for his buddy Remus)
  • Fixed issue when Hiss Barrier remains in the Directorial Override mission’s Control Room if the player dies during the binding cut scene


  • Fixed issue when certain licensed music tracks play after enabling the ‘Mute Copyrighted Tracks’ option
  • Fixed and issue when audio is out of sync in the Dr Darling videos (PS4)


  • Fixed issue with the Charge weapon forms erroneous blast radius causing (way) too much visual damage to the environments
  • Fixed an issue where game would stall when completing a story mission and unlocking a trophy (PS4)

I already Platinumed it and trade it in but I wish I could have used the second & third forms of the Pierce Gun.

I've been streaming this and while playing, have noticed the map bug, which is annoying, now has a wierd stuttering when coming out of pause, unless that's cause of 60FPS streaming, i'm on a pro
