Had my fun with it already but I'll be glad to revisit it once it's out on Steam, even if for Photo mode alone.

Control looks amazing, as always. As for the DRM, I don't care about DRM by itself, only when it lessens the game. Which unfortunately in this case it does. There was a way to get the PS4 exclusive skin called "Astral Dive Suit" on PC before - it's the suit shown on screenshots 5 and 10 here.

With this DRM, there's no way to get it on PC anymore. While this was never supported as it is a PS4 skin, it's in the PC game files already since to unlock it all you needed to do was to change some values with an Hex Editor. Then there's the fact that U$ 60 for the game is the same whether you buy it on PC, PS4 or XB1. All this exclusive shit is stupid as hell since everybody pays the same price, but some people get less.

The DRM also made the game stop working with the Steam controller, removed Offline Mode and requires a constant internet connection now, as described in PCGamingWiki by the community:

"Requires Epic Games Launcher DRM and a constant internet connection for all game modes, as of version 1.04.[2]"

They literally made the game worse in so many ways that people on Reddit and other places are recommending to not patch the game. Worst of all is that this doesn't help anyone, it doesn't even help prevent the game from being pirated, this doesn't save server costs, it does nothing other than just... well, take control away from the customers and screw them in the process. So many goddamn dumb decisions.

PS. There appears to still be possible to unlock the PS4 exclusiveAstral Dive Suit skin on PC after the update, but the Hex values have changed locations. However the rest of restrictions still apply.

Control is a prime example of how not to sell a game. Between the store exclusivity. The broken performance. The lack of HDR, the DRM update that breaks controller support and kills it's offline mode. I mean, it was hardly well promoted in the first place but it seems like remedy are doing everything they can to make this a bomba. Which is a shame because it's actually the best game they've made In a long ass time.

Thanks for the info. Just checked their Twitter account and they have rolled back the patch and will re-roll it as soon as they have fixed the issues that came up like always online and no Steam controller support. This is good news, the way it was before was just so anti-consumer that almost made the game broken for many people.

Their twitter statement is in the link below:

Remedy also assumed responsibility for the mistake and stated there was no need to blame Epic. They could have said nothing about Epic, but they did it so people stop blaming Epic, which many assumed it was Epic who asked for these restrictions. While others blamed 505 Games, the publisher. Remedy assumed responsibility, acted fast to remove the patch and apologized for the issues people experienced. Things I always respect.
