Tetris Effect's Soundtrack Is Now Free to Everyone

Tetris Effect's Soundtrack Is Now Free to Everyone

Thank you, Enhance, for the limitless vibes.

If you're like me, you've gotten the opening track from the Tetris Effect stuck in your head every few weeks since the game was revealed at E3 2018. It's just one earworm in a soundtrack full of bangers, and now listeners don't need to load up the game, find a video on YouTube, or even spend a dime to listen to Tetris Effect's hypnotic beats. As of today, you can listen to the full soundtrack for free.

That's 40 tracks adding up to 2 hours and 51 minutes of music, in case you're wondering. Hydelic's complete, official soundtrack can be streamed for free via YouTube Music. It's also available for digital purchase through Amazon and Google Play.

You might recall news from last year that the whole soundtrack would also be released through Bandcamp. It seems as though that option hasn't gone live quite yet, as neither Tetris Effect developers Enhance or composers Hydelic have tweeted out links to the soundtrack yet. Anyway, there's a good chance the Bandcamp page will pop up before you've had a chance to finish listening on YouTube. Why wait to start vibing, even if you're going to purchase it?

If you're interested in getting the soundtrack on physical media, it seems you're pretty much out of luck at the moment. The digital soundtracks are launching today because folks are starting to receive their special vinyl copies they ordered through Limited Run Games-both versions are sold out, so if you didn't get in on the preorders, you'll have to hope that a reseller will cut you a decent deal.

Still haven't played Enhance's sublime, entrancing version of Tetris? There are actually a few more options for playing it now. After launching for the PS4 and PSVR in late 2018, Tetris Effect came to the PC via the Epic Games Store (with VR support) last summer, and just two weeks ago a VR-only Oculus Quest version launched for $29.99.

Here's hoping Enhance's next game, Humanity, also features a soundtrack on par with Tetris Effect's—and that we won't have to wait as long to enjoy it on its own.

Thanks, Wario64.
