Tetris Effect is saying goodbye to PS4 exclusivity…and hello to Epic Games Store exclusivity. A new take on the classic puzzler series from Rez and Lumines creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Tetris Effect was one of best under-the-radar PS4 exclusives of 2018, nabbing an impressive 89 OpenCritic score and several GOTY awards. The new PC version of the game boasts 4K resolution, uncapped framerate, and support for ultrawide monitors. You can also optionally play the game in VR using your Oculus or HTC Vive headset. Check out a new Tetris Effect PC trailer, below.

Named after a real-world phenomenon where players’ brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, Tetris Effect amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play. From deep beneath the ocean to the furthest reaches of outer space and everywhere between, Tetris Effect’s 30-plus stages take players on a wondrous, emotional journey through the universe.

Get In The Zone

Includes the all-new “Zone” mechanic, where players can stop time (and Tetriminos falling) by entering “the Zone” and either get out of a sticky situation that could otherwise lead to “Game Over,” or rack up extra line clears for bonus rewards.

Level Up

Over 30 different stages, each with its own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them.

Play Your Way

Fan-favorite modes like Marathon, Sprint, and Ultra, with more all-new modes and other features to be revealed before launch.

Tetris Effect is currently available on PS4. The game hits PC via the Epic Games Store on July 23.
