Tetris Effect melds the series' classic block-dropping gameplay with trippy 3D imagery, creating a relaxing experience that promises to play with your senses and emotions. Here’s the official Tetris Effect rundown:
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.
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.
PS4 Or PS4 Pro (& Optional PS VR!)
Fully playable on either a standard display (up to 4K and 60fps on a PS4Pro) or optionally in mind-blowing 3D on PS VR.
I briefly got a chance to try out Tetris Effect at E3, and it seemed like a promising, and very pretty, take on the classic puzzle series. I didn’t really feel a “magical feeling of total immersion,” but perhaps I just didn’t play long enough. What do you think? Are you going to check out the game?
Tetris Effect is a PS4/PSVR exclusive. A price for the game has not yet been set.
