Max Payne 3 celebrates its tenth anniversary with a new soundtrack, without a remake

Ten years have passed since the Max Payne trilogy concluded. All three games are available to play on Xbox Series X/S thanks to backwards compatibility, and if you skip to the third entry, you’ll hear a soundtrack composed by celebrated noise rock group Health. The band is back for Max Payne 3’s 10th birthday, but we’re the ones getting the gift: new music.

Announced by Rockstar, “a new version of the iconic soundtrack” is in the works. It will be released on limited edition vinyl, but you don’t have to have a turntable to listen to it, it’s also heading to digital platforms like Spotify. There’s no release date for the soundtrack just yet, so those interested should “stay tuned to Rockstar Newswire” for now.

The soundtrack itself contains some pretty famous songs. Health’s “signature wistful noise rock sound” was taken to new places when the band wrote for the game. One of the tunes from Max Payne 3, “Tears”, is still regularly played at Health’s live shows. The anniversary soundtrack “will also feature previously unreleased tracks from the game,” so if you think you’ve heard it all before, you haven’t.

As nice as this soundtrack news is, many fans remain disappointed at the lack of a Max Payne 3 remake. Remedy, the studio behind Alan Wake and Control, has teamed up with Rockstar to remake Max Payne 1 and 2. , but that leaves the third game in the cold. Here’s hoping it can be ‘remedied’ in the future.

In the meantime, we’ve been celebrating the Max Payne games with a series of deep dives into the themes of each entry. The original Max Payne shoots at the heart of how video games work with innovations like bullet time, and the sequel chooses what to preserve and leave behind. The remakes don’t have release dates yet, but those reviews should be a good way to prepare for their arrival.
