CALABASAS, Calif. – April 11, 2019 – Global videogame publisher 505 Games and internationally renowned developer Remedy Entertainment, Plc. today revealed award-winning composer Martin Stig Andersen (INSIDEWolfenstein II: The New Colossus) and BAFTA-nominated composer Petri Alanko (Alan WakeQuantum Break) are creating the score for supernatural action-adventure game Control.  Combining Andersen’s experience with creating eerie compositions with Alanko’s unique blend of orchestral and electronic arrangements, the renowned duo is joining forces to form an otherworldly soundscape for Control’s mysterious world.

"I couldn't imagine a better match for Control than Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen. Martin's deep and moody style combined with the unique energy of Petri Alanko elevates the end result into something special,” said Control’s Game Director Mikael Kasurinen. “While both capture the tone of the experience, they approach it from different perspectives, complementing each other beautifully."

Control’s score is being carefully crafted to back an ever-changing world that juxtaposes reality with the unexplainable. Andersen and Alanko’s scores will mirror Control’s dynamic gameplay elements by evolving around the game’s moments of stirring surrealism and fierce action.

"We knew Control required a very specific form of music to fit the aesthetic vision. Given the exceptional scores of their previous projects including Alan WakeLimbo and Inside, it was clear to us that combining the talents of both Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen would be perfect for creating such a weird, supernatural soundtrack for Control," said Control’s Senior Audio Designer Ville Sorsa.

Control is available to pre-order now and will release on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019 for physical and digital retail on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a simultaneous digital launch on the Epic Games store for PC. To register for more information and regular updates, please visit www.controlgame.com and follow @ControlRemedy on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
