Rez Infinite gets physical release, deluxe vinyl soundtrack from iam8bit

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The high-definition re-release of classic musical shooter Rez, Enhance Games' Rez Infinite, is getting a physical release on PlayStation 4 and a deluxe vinyl soundtrack featuring its memorable collection of electronic music, thanks to Los Angeles-based iam8bit.

The physical release of Rez Infinite will be a limited run and sold exclusively by iam8bit. The region-free disc will cost $39.99.

The vinyl soundtrack for Rez Infinite will come in two editions: the Rez Infinite collector's edition vinyl with retrospective art book ($75) and a Rez Infinite limited edition picture disc vinyl with art book ($85). The latter is limited to 1,000 copies. Both vinyl soundtracks will come on two LPs and one seven-inch record that features music from the re-release's new level, Area X.

The included art book features 48 pages of full-color concept art, screens and a retrospective by the game's creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi and key members of the original Rez development team (art director Katsumi Yokota, programmer Osamu Kodera, artist Jake Kazdal) as well as the new team (artist for Area X, Takashi Ishihara). It's written by Nick Hurwitch and the whole package was designed by Cory Schmitz.

In addition, iam8bit will also release two T-shirts designed by Schmitz and game designer Phil Fish (which cost $25-$28), as well as a pair of hard enamel pins ($10 each).

The physical release, vinyl soundtrack and other merchandise are expected to arrive in October. The picture disc vinyl is slated for December. Everything you see below goes up for pre-order on Friday, Aug. 19 at 9 a.m. PT.
