The Control Ultimate Edition is out today which means PS5 and Xbox Series X/S owners can now enjoy the enhanced version of the game on their new console. The changes in Control Ultimate: Edition include an improved resolution, better visual, performance and both expansions which were previously released for the game.
The big feature in Control: Ultimate Edition is, of course, the ray-tracing visual mode that adds all the pretty reflections to the game. There’s also an enhanced performance mode that makes the game run at 60FPS at the cost of some visuals and the lack of ray-tracing.
But how does the enhanced version of the game hold up and what is the Control Ultimate Edition file size? Well, according to Remedy, Control runs at 1440p on both PS5 and Xbox Series X when making use of the performance mode at 60FPS. This outputs to 4K. When using the Control Ultimate Edition graphics mode (aka ray-tracing) then the game drops to a capped 30FPS but also renders at 1440p and outputs at 4K.
Performance Mode targets 60fps perf with 1440p render resolution and 4K output. Graphics Mode targets 30fps perf with ray tracing at 1440p render resolution and 4K output.
NOT 1220p as unfortunately has been erroneously listed. The amount of times I checked this …sigh. Sorry.

As for the Control Ultimate Edition file size, players on both PS5 and Xbox Series X/S can look forward to a much smaller game size coming in at 25GB. This is almost half of the original game’s size which is great news for those fighting for SSD space on their PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. PC owners are not as lucky though. The game is still over 40GB on the platform.
Keep in mind that PlayStation Plus subscribers can download Control Ultimate Edition for free this month as part of the instant game collection. This is alongside Destruction AllStars and Concrete Genie
