Photo Mode

Control is a handsome game. Without any kind of Photo Mode, you can take some ludicrously pretty screenshots in-game already. This process will be made a lot easier and better thanks to the new Photo Mode, however.

It seems as though the Control Photo Mode has less features than some other games, with just a few options to choose from. The developers explain that “virtual photography” was “in mind” when the Photo Mode was created. As such, it should feel as though you are using a DSLR camera in-game. You can control the following in Photo Mode (accessible via the pause menu):

  • Aperture
  • Camera roll
  • Depth of field
  • Field of view
  • Focus distance


Along with the Photo Mode, several fixes have taken place thanks to the 1.04 update. Remus, for example, should now actually spawn in the NSC Energy Converters area during Side Mission Five. The game shouldn’t crash anymore during combat within the Prime Candidate Program area, either. There are more fixes, too, which you can discover in the full list of patch notes below.
