With the Standard Edition available on PC, the story-driven action RPG has been met with a wealth of stellar reviews and a metascore of 85/100. With the title centred on an extraordinary family of heroes, will players be able to sacrifice everything to save loved ones?
Children of Morta sets its story in a distant land but copes with themes closer to our daily lives than one would expect. It is a story of simple emotions involving love and hope, longing and uncertainty, and – ultimately – loss and sacrifice.
Embark on the adventure of an extraordinary family of heroes. With the Corruption spreading through the land, guardians of the Mountain Morta have to stand up against an ancient evil. But it’s not a story about saving the universe. It’s a story about a valiant family standing together while the world around them is being devoured by darkness.
The Signature Edition includes:
- Region free copy of Children of Morta
- Pocket Art Book
- Art Card
- 6 enamel pins featuring each family member’s emblem
Merge Games will also be giving away a Children of Morta Signature Edition coin for free with each Signature Edition Pre-Order when it ships.

Control: Combat meets supernatural
In Control, Jesse Faden becomes the new director of the Federal Bureau of Control and uncovers the supernatural threats that haunt the headquarters.
When the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control starts her job, she discovers the headquarters has been taken over by some kind of supernatural threat. She needs to do what it takes to get the building back.
Control’s reluctant leading lady arrives at the bureau searching for the truth behind a tragic event from her childhood that ended in the unexplained disappearance of her brother – the supernatural ripples of which have followed her ever since.
She’s a far cry from an alpha male videogame archetype. Traditionally, the bureau is starchy and by-the-book, but Jesse is spontaneous, instinctive and prepared to do whatever necessary to get the answers she needs.
Control’s big-bad is The Hiss – a mysterious otherworldly entity which travels between dimensions, corrupting and consuming everything it comes across. What that means for Jesse is a skyscraper full of compromised bureau employees out for her blood.
Don’t assume that translates as hordes of cookie-cutter white-collar office drones coming after you. Remedy has taken the concept and run with it, twisting the bureau’s workforce into variety terrifying forms that require strategic thinking to take down.
The bureau’s name is the Oldest House, where the game’s action plays out. It’s a huge, brutalist, Tardis-like structure that transcends its own physical boundaries, shifting its dimensions as players explore.
Control’s combat sees players combining two separate sets of systems to devastating effect: a highly customisable service weapon, and a range of supernatural powers. It’s sophisticated, creative and lots of fun to play around with.
Alongside the big action set pieces, players also need to exercise their grey matter to solve both environmental puzzles and narrative riddles that, in keeping with the dream logic that underpins the game’s plot, demands thinking outside the box.
Control is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
