Expeditions mode is a challenging new experience to test out skills of a player in character build, combat and loadout. Once you have completed "My Brother’s Keeper" main mission, you can get access to this timed game mode.

There is an old-timey jukebox, which is another Object of Power that is kept in a remote room near to Central Executive area. When all jukebox tokens are collected, players will hear a song that would transport Jesse Faden into another dimension.

Once you are transported to Quarry Threshold, you have only 25 minutes to wrap up Expedition. It is already pretty difficult to complete and you are sent back to where you came from when your time is finally up.

You can defeat select enemies, complete Bureau Alerts and Board Countermeasures or buy more jukebox tokens from Astral Constructs menu. Expeditions have three tiers and they are all unlocked in a cycle and each one more difficult.

Accessing further tiers will cost you more tokens but gives you a chance to reap better rewards. Playing through Expeditions, Jesse has chances to get brand-new outfit, earn abundant crafting materials and mods for her Service Weapon.

Each time you go out trying your luck, there would be different gameplay factors like weapon damage getting significant buff, ammo generating faster or Jesse's supernatural abilities becomes less effective against Hiss enemies.

Control Getting Photo Mode

Long-anticipated Photo Mode feature is heading to Control tomorrow to let you capture its striking aesthetic.

Following its launch back in August 2019, action-adventure game Control from developer Remedy Entertainment and publisher 505 Games has seen overly positive response on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

A post-launch content roadmap was revealed last month that includes two upcoming expansions alongside a brand-new game mode and a much requested Photo Mode, which is arriving soon on October 16, 2019.

In a latest Update 1.04, Photo Mode will be added and can be found within Options menu. Camera can be moved left to right to focus on object or pan up and down using thumb sticks or trigger buttons of a controller in console.

You can begin capturing any fascinating visuals starting from Brutalist hallways of the Oldest House or protagonist Jesse Faden wielding her supernatural gifts against Hiss-corrupted enemies around her to unleash your creativity.

Before applying multiple different filters on a scene, remove Jesse or all other characters from any scene, or even do both using Filters tab. Options to reset a shot and hiding all UI are available for your convenience as well.

Control DLC May Have Alan Wake Crossover

Recently revealed post-launch DLC content for Control may finally tie in to story of Alan Wake in 2020.

In a recent venture with publisher 505 Games, developer Remedy Entertainment has seen critical and commercial success with release of action-adventure game Control on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to their latest announcement for upcoming post-launch content roadmap for the game, two new expansions are revealed and one of them is clearly teasing a tie-in to 2010 supernatural horror universe of Alan Wake.

RELATED: Control Post-Launch Content Roadmap

Before Control, Finnish developer Remedy made a reputation with critically acclaimed psychological thriller title Alan Wake. Although there was a stand-alone follow-up title Alan Wake's American Nightmare, fans never got a true sequel.

Players have already found clues, documents and Easter eggs during their mind-bending exploration of Control that clearly points at events of Bright Falls from first Alan Wake game that was launched almost 10 years ago for Xbox 360.

RELATED: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot TGS 2019 Trailer

Initially, it was an easily missable teaser image of Control's second expansion AWE but when Remedy creative director/writer Sam Lake shared that image on Twitter with a cryptic caption, many people starts noticing what was up.


RELATED: Resident Evil Project Resistance Gameplay Overview

A closer look at poster of AWE expansion reveals official box art of Alan Wake in top half of its lettering that sued fonts from the same game. In below half, protagonist Jesse Faden of Control is probably fighting Hiss at Federal Bureau of Control.

AWE can either stand for either "Alan Wake Experience" or Altered World Events and the latter one actually makes more sense. Remedy has also teased these references earlier in their 2016 sci-fi adventure shooter title Quantum Break.

RELATED: Death Stranding TGS 2019 Gameplay Demo

Although both Alan Wake and Control are set on different plots, many hints suggest that they both are from same universe and maybe even the latter is some sort of continuation of events that took place in Washington forest a decade ago.

According to press release, AWE will arrive on mid-2020 and will send Jesse to investigations sector of Oldest House, a part where FBC keeps tabs on Altered World Events and Bright Falls' case was what the Bureau investigated earlier.

With every lead matching and pointing to each other, there could is a very good chance for a crossover event or even nothing at all. If not anything, it can very much help revive a beloved series once again by providing a great launch pad.

Through its ending, Control has set up possibilities for a potential sequel to expand further on lead character Jesse Faden's story and despite Remedy expressing to make Alan Wake 2, nothing can be said for sure until next year.
