On this page of our game guide to Control you can find the most important information about the second DLC add-on to Control, that is, Altered World Events - AWE. We have listed all major novelties and features of this second expansion set. Also, we explain how to unlock access to the AWE add-on.
AWE DLC - how to buy?
Altered World Events - AWE is the title of the second DLC created for Control. You can gain access to this expansion set by three main ways:
- Purchase the Control Ultimate Edition. It is a set that includes the basic game and two large DLC add-ons. After you buy this version of the game, the AWE add-on will be installed immediately. You don't have to buy it or install it separately.
- Buy the AWE DLC. It's the second additional content pack that was created for the game. It is worth buying a DLC if you have the original version of the game, and you also want to complete additional content.
- Purchase a Seasonal Pass. It contains two expansion sets - The Foundation DLC and AWE DLC. It's worth buying a Seasonal Pass if you have the original version of the game, and you also want to complete all the additional content.
Once you have gained access to the DLC, don't forget to make sure that it has been correctly added to your account. In case of the PS4 version, you have to collect a free item called Control: Expansion Pack 2 - AWE. AWE add-on will automatically be installed along with one of the game's updates.
AWE DLC - how to unlock?
After you start the game (after buying or gaining access to the AWE DLC) a new side quest will be available in Jesse's journal called A Dark Place. This task is related to the AWE DLC add-on. This is the title of the first task associated with the Altered World Events expansion.
If you have not received this quest, then it may be a sign that you have not advanced enough in the game. Don't play the DLC if you haven't unlocked the Levitate ability yet, which can be acquired during My brother's keeper main mission. The stronger Jesse gets, the more easily she will be able to defeat the more powerful opponents of the DLC. A full description of the AWE DLC and a detailed walkthrough can be found in a separate chapter of our game guide.
