Minecraft Fan Makes Incredible Hardcore Base Inspired by Control

It is hard to find many games that offer more creative freedom to players than Minecraft. In addition to the content found in the base game, Mojang has featured a number of different DLCs for Minecraft over the years, such as Sonic the Hedgehog and SpongeBob SquarePants content, just to name a few. However, one fan was not satisfied with the list of DLC available for the game based on other franchises and decided to take things to the next level, building an impressive creation based on Control.


Released in 2019, Control is an action-adventure title that has become highly regarded among many in the gaming community. The game centers around Jesse Faden as she searches for her lost brother. One of the appeals of the title was the location where the story takes place, the Oldest House, the Federal Bureau of Control’s paranormal headquarters.

Taking to Reddit, a user known as Ominous_Hippopotamus shared a video highlighting a building project they had created in Minecraft. According to the Reddit user, they had decided to build a Hardcore Base based on Control, and the results were impressive, to say the least. The video shared by Ominous_Hippopotamus began with a timelapse segment that revealed the exterior of the Federal Bureau of Control’s the Oldest House taking shape. However, this was far from the extent of the build made by the creator.

In addition to the outside of the creation, Ominous_Hippopotamus provided a glimpse at their build from the inside. The video showed the player walking around what appeared to be a striking recreation of the Central Research area from Control, complete with the giant tree growing in the middle of the room. Remarkably, the Reddit user added that they had created the entire build in Hardcore Mode, meaning they had to collect all the materials for the creation. Furthermore, the base would have been deleted if they had accidentally died.

Since Ominous_Hippopotamus shared their Control-inspired Hardcore base on Reddit, the post has garnered immense attention from the Minecraft community. The build has already accrued more than 4,500 upvotes in just over a day. In addition, many users praised the creator, with a number of comments complimenting the lighting used inside the Oldest House.

While this Control-themed Hardcore base is impressive, it is far from the only creation based on other popular video game franchises that fans have created. For example, one gamer recently made a mod for Minecraft that turned the voxel world into Breath of the Wild, complete with a Sheika tower. As players doubtlessly continue to play Minecraft in the weeks ahead, it will be interesting to see what other creations are shown off by fans. Perhaps, Ominous_Hippopotamus will add even more to their Control build by making the iconic Ashtray Maze seen in the game.

Minecraft is available now for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
