All Alan Wake connections

Easter Eggs

There are numerous references to Alan Wake throughout Control, particularly through the numerous collectibles that flesh out the worldbuilding.

  • One document references Night Springs, an in-game TV show found in Alan Wake. A later document brings up Night Springs again and says the original show was just fiction, but was brought back to help see how people would react to paranormal concepts.
  • Another document discusses thermoses found in Bright Falls, the town where Alan Wake is set, and mentions Alan himself as a member of the Prime Candidate Program. (Thermoses were a collectible in Alan Wake.) It calls out the setting of Alan Wake as being sites where Altered World Events have occurred.
  • Later documents go into greater detail about the events of Alan Wake as an AWE and describe the investigation into them.
  • There is even a message showing Alan Wake himself talking about what happened.
  • A whiteboard can be found detailing the information used in the House of Dreams ARG that served as a promotion for Alan Wake.
  • The in-game band The Old Gods of Asgard (who are played by the real band Poets of the Fall) from Alan Wake has songs in Control as well.
  • Thomas Zane, the poet from Alan Wake, is also referenced.
  • Another reference to Alan’s books being about a real cop also double as an Easter egg to Max Payne, since Alan’s books were a reference to the Max Payne series to start with.
  • In a sort of reverse Easter egg/foreshadowing, a secret message in the ending theme of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare says “It will happen again in a town called Ordinary.” Ordinary is the hometown of Jesse, Control’s protagonist.

Right now, it is unclear if these things are Easter eggs alone, or if they actually are meant to imply Alan Wake and Control exist in the same universe. Since the upcoming AWE DLC features a logo that strongly resembles the Alan Wake logo, it is popularly believed that a direct connection will be made between the two.

Max Payne reference

Easter Eggs

One of the videos from Dr. Darling mentions a door code being 6-6-5. This is a reference to Max Payne, in which Max jokes about a 6-6-5 door code being “the neighbor of the beast.” (This itself is a reference to 666 being the number of the beast in the Bible.)

Poets of the Fall

Easter Eggs

While Alan Wake’s in-game band The Old Gods of Asgard exists in Control, you can also read about and listen to a song from Poets of the Fall, the real-life band that portrays them.

Socks and Ballerinas

Easter Eggs

There are lyrics, posters, and other references to the band Socks and Ballerinas, a Finnish group.

Hideo Kojima cameo

Easter Eggs

Hideo Kojima has a cameo role as Dr. Yoshimi Tokui in the side mission “Dr. Yoshimi Tokui’s Guided Imagery Experience.” The interpreter for him in the side mission is voiced by Aki Saito, the Communications Manager of Kojima Productions.

P6 codename

Easter Eggs

The FBC uses the codename P6 for a certain character. P6 was actually the codename used for Control itself before it was revealed.

How to unlock the Gold Suit costume


If you successfully use all of the luck items in the Luck & Probability room to win at roulette, you will unlock a special Gold Suit costume. Notes in the room give you hints about what you need to do.

Activate the cat statue.

Plant the 4-leaf clover near the roulette wheel.

Activate the bouncing balls.

Turn the horseshoe so it’s facing up.

Put the golden fish next to the roulette wheel.

Turn on all the lights in the roulette room.

Spin the roulette wheel while not standing in the red zone, and you’ll get your results. If you’ve activated all of the luck items, you should win the gold suit.

Eternal Flame mod / Unlimited Ammo


If you throw six smoking TVs into the furnace, you’ll get the Eternal Flame weapon mod, which gives you a shot for every shot that hits any enemy, meaning it effectively gives you unlimited ammo as long as you’re accurate enough.

All Collectible Locations


There are many collectibles hidden throughout the game. These include documents detailing Objects of Power and Altered Items, other documents expanding the worldbuilding, letters and correspondances, and multimedia presentations.

If you’re having trouble finding any of the collectibles, use the video guides below for help

All Hidden Locations


At Hidden Locations, you will be able to obtain additional ability points not obtained through missions. There are 19 of these hidden areas for you to find. If you’re having trouble finding any of them, use the video guide below for help.

Basic Tips


Control points serve as respawn points if you die, so make sure to touch a control point when you pass it so that you’ll respawn there, even if you don’t intend to save at that one.

If you see an area you can’t access yet, or if there’s a side mission that takes you to an area where you feel greatly underpowered, it is most likely that you’re supposed to return there later. Leave for now and return when you’re prepared for it.

Using the map can be difficult, so make sure you pay attention to signs that point the way to different areas and rooms.

Stay in motion during combat. Moving around will make it harder for enemies to attack you, while standing still or trying to stay behind one point of cover can make you vulnerable.

Throwing items at enemies can be more effective than just using your ammo. Keep an eye on your energy, but make sure to use Launch (and your other abilities as well) as part of combat.

Try out different Service Weapon forms. Grip is the default, but you unlock others you can use as well. You can pause to equip different Service Weapon forms from the menu even during combat.

The blue fragments enemies drop heal you. If you’re low on health, run toward them to pick some up.

Equipping a health recovery mod can also help you keep your health up during combat.

NPCs can give you side missions, so be sure to talk to them often.

Board Countermeasures


Board Countermeasures are optional quests used to earn more XP and crafting materials. You can have up to three active at a time, and they’re essentially challenges you have to complete, such as killing a certain number of enemies in a specific way. If you want a different countermeasure, just abandon one and take a different one. You’ll always be able to try more.
