The latest DLC Control: AWE will be releasing this month, which follows the Alan Wake Experience. It adds roughly 4-5 hours of gameplay, and will feature new jobs from caretaker Ahti. There will also be the addition of new enemies, the Airborne Ranger and an additional light-based mechanic which comes from Alan Wake.
August is also the arrival of a free update for all players, which will add a new Surge form to the service weapon, which fire sticky grenades capable of dealing a high amount of destruction. The update also adds more save spots and checkpoints, plus a new upgrade for the Launch power and a new “Assist Mode” which allows players to adjust settings such as Jesse’s energy recharge rate, the amount of damage Jesse can take and the speed of the service weapon reload.
