ATLiens, the classic album by legendary hip-hop duo Outkast, just turned 25.

Big Boi and André 3000 are commemorating the anniversary with a special deluxe edition.

The release will feature the original 15-track album and 14 previously unreleased instrumental tracks, per HypeBeast. “Legacy Recordings is also set to release a limited edition 4LP 12” vinyl edition of ATLiens, which is set to include both the album and instrumental tracks,” reported the outlet.

In addition to releasing a special edition vinyl, Big Boi and André 3000 will release a mobile and desktop interfaced video game. According to a press release per XXL, “the game will allow users to play as either Big Boi or Three Stacks and battle aliens in Atlanta. The goal is to collect as many vinyl discs as you can to achieve the highest number of points possible.”

There is no release date yet for the video game.

The album scored them a No.2 spot on the Billboard 200 and has since went double platinum by the RIAA per HypeBeast.
