Is there a Control Standard Edition to Ultimate Edition upgrade?

Control Standard Edition to Ultimate Edition upgrade

You cannot upgrade from your Control Standard Edition to Control Ultimate Edition for free. No matter how much DLC you’ve already paid for with the Standard Edition of Control, you will need to buy the Ultimate Edition of the game. They are treated as two separate games by 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment. You cannot upgrade either cheaply or for nothing to Control Ultimate Edition, whether you want to or not.

How much does Control Ultimate Edition cost?

The prices of Control Ultimate Edition are as follows:

  • $39.99
  • €39.99
  • £32.99
  • £34.99 on PC in the U.K.

Again, it is a separate purchase to the Standard Edition of Control. You cannot upgrade from one to the other without paying full price for both. Thankfully, Ultimate Edition is cheaper than the Standard Edition of Control, which costs $59.99 before any sales. Essentially though, you can upgrade to Control Ultimate Edition for $39.99, but it is a completely new game with a different save file. This means that you will have to start your game all over again (there is no transferrable save file between Standard and Ultimate Edition).

Control Ultimate Edition comes with the base game, all DLC, all updates up to this point, better graphics, and more. There is no next-gen upgrade for owners of the Standard Edition of Control, no matter if you own all the DLC or not. You will have to buy the Ultimate Edition to make the most of Control on your PS5 or next-gen Xbox.
