Control is getting ready to release and fans seem to be excited about it. Recently, Remedy Entertainment confirmed that production of all copies would begin soon. However, there is still news on the game, as the developer updated the specifications of the System Requirements to play the game on PC (through the Epic Games Store), which will surely make you happy, because they are less demanding.

One of the most important details is that it will no longer be necessary to have an Intel Core 15-7500 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X processor, because now it will be enough for your machine to try an Intel Core i5-4690 or an AMD FX 4350. You should not worry either if your team has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 graphics card or an AMD Radeon R9 280X, as they will be enough to be able to play the title of Control in its minimum quality.

In addition, the specifications for the optimal game decreased, so you will need less powerful and expensive equipment to be able to run the game at its maximum performance and with ray tracing technology. In addition, the PC version will have support for wide screens (21:9), configurable controls, G-sync, FreeSync and fps without restriction.
