It’s been ten years because the Max Payne trilogy concluded. All three video games can be found to play on Xbox Series X/S due to backwards compatibility, and in case you soar into the third entry, you’ll hear a soundtrack composed by celebrated noise rock group Health.

Announced by Rockstar, “a new version of the iconic soundtrack” is within the works. It’ll be launched on limited-edition vinyl, however you don’t must personal a file participant to listen to it — it’s headed to digital platforms like Spotify too. There’s no launch date for the soundtrack as of but, so these ought to “stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire” for now.

The soundtrack itself accommodates some fairly celebrated songs. Health’s “signature melancholy noise rock sound” was taken to some new locations when the band composed for the game. One of the Max Payne 3 tunes, “Tears,” remains to be often performed at Health’s reside exhibits. The anniversary soundtrack will “also debut previously unreleased tracks from the game,” so in case you assume you’ve heard all of it earlier than, you haven’t.
