Housesitting for some friends, so I’m getting to play some of my stuff with a newer rig. An RTX 3070 is able to run max settings, including ray-tracing at 1080p. I’ve owned Control for awhile now but haven’t played it on my old rig as I’ve heard some nightmares about running it on even newer hardware. In my short testing I never dipped below 72-75 FPS with the listed settings, while DX11 no RT ran well over 100fps.
Anyway, enjoy another intro to the growing intro playlist. More to come over the next couple of weeks.
Control info from wiki:
Control is an action-adventure game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games. The game was released in August 2019. Two paid expansions have been released.
The game revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that violate the laws of reality. As Jesse Faden (Courtney Hope), the Bureau’s new Director, the player explores the Oldest House – the FBC’s paranormal headquarters – and utilizes powerful abilities in order to defeat a deadly enemy known as the Hiss, which has invaded and corrupted reality. The player gains abilities by finding Objects of Power, mundane objects like a rotary phone or a floppy disk imbued with energies from another dimension, that have been at the center of major paranormal events and since recovered by the FBC. In addition to Hope, voice work and live-action footage is provided by James McCaffrey, Matthew Porretta, and Martti Suosalo, while the band Poets of the Fall provided additional music.
