Last week, Remedy Entertainment released their newest game, Control, which was received favorably by both fans and critics alike. As first reported by PCGamer, a YouTube user by the name of ManFightDragon gained access to the game’s debugging tools on the PC, and made a video showing off what the tools could do. ManFightDragon also discovered an interesting tidbit that may point to the game’s future DLC.
For those that don’t know what debugging tools are, these tools allow for developers to test certain aspects of a game on the fly. These tools usually aren’t accessible to players after the game releases, however, sometimes players find a way to access these tools themselves as is the case for Control.
Control‘s debug tools feature a free camera which allows the user to move the camera around the environment independently of the character. There are also ways to view the game with different visual effects. However, the biggest thing is the tools also allow for the user to jump to any mission within the game. This is where ManFightDragon finds the reference that may hint at what the game’s DLC may possibly be when he discovered a mission called “St01_MM_04_Marshall_START_Plus_PS4_SM15_Dlc.” This can be seen around the 5:21 mark in the video above.
Obviously, the biggest indication that this is a reference to future DLC is the “Dlc” tag at the end of the mission name. Another indication is the name Marshall in the mission title. This may point to a major character named Marshall, the head of security for the Federal Bureau of Control, that the main character Jesse interacts with throughout the game. Thus, this may indicate that this possible DLC will focus on the character Marshall or may even cast her as a playable character.
Control is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
