    Last week, Remedy Entertainment dropped a community update post regarding an upcoming patch for Control. The main takeaway from the post was that the game was to receive some graphical updates so users will have more options to tune the game to their liking. Earlier today, the patch went live. Well, it went live for the PlayStation 4, anyway. However, it will be available for PC owners “very soon.” The company listed the full patch notes, which we can look through in the meantime.

    For graphics options, Control will now include toggle switches to two features. You will soon be able to switch off both motion blur and film grain, both of which were always on by default. In other words, if you were having trouble running the graphics-intensive Control, the new options should help.

    New graphics options are on the way.

    The patch will offer other improvements as well. The user interface will see a couple fixes. One of which is a fix for “incorrect UI behavior on ultra-wide monitors.” Another fixes some problems regarding incorrect subtitles.

    The entire list of patch notes can be seen below:
