Get ready for a dose of retro and nostalgia done in a prankish way, as Remedy Entertainment has put out a Control April Fools gameplay trailer that shows the game running on the original PlayStation system! Yep! If you ever wanted to see Control PS1 gameplay, then you just got your wish!
Here’s the gameplay trailer with the team getting very creative at using the 32-bit graphics of the legendary console system.
Along with the gag is this announcement from the game’s official website.
Starting today, you can play Control exclusively on the first PlayStation system. Here’s a short clip, courtesy of our principal gameplay designer, Tommi Saalasti, the driving force of this port. Hope you like it!
Of course, the real Control game certainly isn’t like that and the description for that game is as follows.
Winner of over 80 awards, Control is a visually stunning third-person action-adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blending open-ended environments with the signature world-building and storytelling of renowned developer, Remedy Entertainment, Control presents an expansive and intensely gratifying gameplay experience.
Nice way to say APRIL FOOLS Remedy! Beautifully done PS1 style graphics and it would have been something to play back in the day!
