Remedy is working to solve some of Control’s worst problems

Publisher 505 Games has confirmed that an update to improve the game’s wobbly console versions, plus a fix for the glitchy map loading and an option to disable motion blur and film grain, is expected to launch this month.

Control’s inconsistent frame rate on console – especially original PS4 and Xbox One models – has been a subject of some controversy since it launched last week. According to Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry tests, the game is dropping to sub-10 frame rates at times, rendering (lolpunz) it almost impossible to play for some.

“Right now, the team are looking at possible ways of improving console optimization in Control, but as you can hopefully understand, these things do take time and don’t happen at the press of a button (as much as we wish they did),” explains 505 Games community manager Antonela Pounder on the game’s website. “We are also examining specific issues that some players have been experiencing and looking for fixes on those.”

Pounder adds that HDR support won’t be included in an update, with the studio focusing its resources instead on “future free content for Control like the Photo Mode” – and more info about that should be announced sometime this week.
