Control Ultimate Edition Xbox One Physical Version Needs One-time Online Connection


A report was recently posted on social media saying that video game Control Ultimate Edition Xbox One Physical needs players to connect to the internet at least once.

According to Twitter user DoesItPlay, several unverified reports have been seen by them saying that they could not progress as far as the game’s opening maintenance elevator without connecting to the internet in order to download an update.

Apparently, the PlayStation 4 version of the game does not have this certain issue. Players could go through the single player campaign without going through internet connection.

505 Games shared a statement in regards to these reports and also confirms it:

Control Ultimate Edition, including all the latest expansions is over 50GB so we’re unable to fit everything on the Xbox disc. We have used Xbox intelligent delivery to provide some content on the disc and the rest via download.

On PlayStation 4, this isn’t the case as Control Ultimate Edition fits on a single disc, due to compression and other variables.

Once you have downloaded the game, rest assured you do not have to be online to play!

Control Ultimate Edition is now available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It is also coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
