UPDATE: It's all change for Control's system requirements. Once the most demanding game in existence on PC, developer Remedy has made some sweeping changes to the PC specs. Good, because there were barely any people that could run it last time.
We’re just about to tip-toe into August, meaning it’ll be Control’s launch month. Control is comfortably one of the biggest new game launches of the coming month, with all signs pointing toward Remedy get its brand of physics-manipulating third-person shooter action back on track after the quagmire of dullness that was Quantum Break.
Control is a beautiful looking sci-fi supernatural 3rd person action-adventure that is expected to be out next month, August. Here we take a look a look at the first 13 minutes of Control as protagonist Jesse Faden explores the Federal Bureau of Controls headquarters in New York.

You can breathe a sigh of relief - Microsoft has announced it is abandoning Windows 10’s forced updates.

Epic Games brought out the big guns yesterday evening, announcing a whole swathe of upcoming titles that’ll be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. This includes a trio of PlayStation 4 exclusives from Quantic Dream, made up of Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and last year’s Detroit: Become Human. Detroit was already one of the best-looking games going so it could look absolutely fantastic with the power of a gaming PC behind it.
