In this Control Collectibles Location guide, we will tell all about the plethora of Collectibles you can hunt in the Oldest House and explain which Collectibles can unlock side quests in Control.

Control Collectibles Locations

The Oldest House, the playable area in Control, is filled with collectibles that tell the backstory of the place and its people. This building is filled with all sorts of different collectibles such as Astral recordings, Records, Research, Case files, as well as Video and Audio recordings. You’ll come across a lot of these when finishing missions.

There are four categories of collectibles in Control, namely Research & Records, Case Files, Correspondence, Multimedia, and Hotline, boasting a total of 412 items that are spread across the Oldest House, in the following sectors:

  • Executive Sector

  • The Pit

Of the 412 items, 287 are from the base game, 57 are from the Foundation DLC, 67 are from the AWE DLC, and 1 is PS4 Exclusive. However, to earn the collectibles’ achievements, as you can see below, you don’t need to collect all of them; you just need 120.
