Rockstar has recently announced that the collection of GTA V’s songs known as Welcome To Los Santos, which debuted in the PC version of the game, will be added to the other four platforms with the coming Ill-Gotten Gains Part II DLC (more on that here).
In accordance with the announcement, Rockstar has launched a competition on the Rockstar Social Club, where they’ll be raffling out vinyl records to five lucky winners. The vinyls come in vibrant colors with cover art depicting a stylized map of Los Santos. The vinyls will feature music collected by the in-game radio hosts Doctor No and Chemical Bro, who run The Lab radio station.
Featuring a diverse array of artists from across the musical spectrum – including Earl Sweatshirt, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs, Popcaan, Killer Mike, Tunde Adebimpe and Samuel T. Herring (from Future Islands).
You can take part in the competition if you enter by the 30th of June. That’s next Tuesday, so you better get on it if you haven’t already! The vinyls will be available after the competition, but this is your chance to get one of these flashy collector’s items for free, and earlier than everyone else (save four other people, that is). Obviously, you’ll need to have an active Rockstar Social Club account to enter the competition, and need to be 18 years of age at the very least.
Video game soundtracks are cool and all, but I’m of the opinion that they should be available with every purchase of base games, since the songs are in the game you bought so you’ll be hearing them anyway, but putting out vinyl records that are this stylish is a cool collector’s item.
Will you guys be picking up the vinyl record down the line? Does anyone among you even have a still working vinyl player?
