Now we all know title tracks and in game music is a major part of game development and in some cases can make or break a game and no one has taken this more seriously than Hangar 13 and 2K when it comes to the release of Mafia 3. In line with the release of the game today they have released the Official Launch Trailer which has a song written specifically for it by Ice Cube and DJ Shadow.
Ice Cube and DJ Shadow’s “Nobody Wants to Die” is an original track that evokes the spirit and themes of Mafia 3 and protagonist Lincoln Clay’s path of revenge against the Italian mafia in 1968 New Bordeaux. Full lyrics for “Nobody Wants to Die,” as well as custom commentary by Ice Cube, is available from Genius.
Mafia 3 is available to buy today for Windows PC and Xbox One and comes in Standard, Limited Deluxe and Collector’s Editions. The Mafia 3 Deluxe Edition (£69.99 MSRP) will be available digitally, and physically in a limited capacity from select retailers, and includes both the game and access to additional, post-release downloadable content, including the Season Pass. The Mafia 3 Collector’s Edition (£139.99 MSRP) is packed with physical and digital items, providing a window into the sights and sounds of 1968 New Bordeaux, including the official soundtrack and original game score, both on 180 gram vinyl, a collectable art book, art prints, and more.
Those who pre-order any edition of Mafia III from participating retailers will receive the Family Kick-Back, which includes three exclusive lieutenant-themed vehicle and weapon gifts available to players at launch.
