Control marks Remedy Entertainment's return to PlayStation, and fortunately, it's looking fairly promising. Playing as Jesse Faden, who assumes the top role at the Federal Bureau of Control, you'll use more than just a fancy transforming gun to fend off the mysterious alien power known as The Hiss.

In the above video from Game Informer, game director Mikael Kasurinen talks us through the supernatural powers that you'll have access to as you explore the Metroidvania style setting, The Oldest House. Based primarily on telekinesis, Jesse is able to launch objects at enemies, bring objects together to form a shield, evade attacks with a burst of speed, levitate in mid-air, and turn hostile NPCs into allies. As you can imagine, you'll be able to combine these abilities, along with the aforementioned Service Weapon, to effectively deal with the otherworldly threat.
