Today marks the first day of Sony's Countdown to E3 2018 announcements event that sees a new PlayStation-related reveal every day leading up til Monday's Sony E3 2018 Showcase. But this isn't quite like any Tetris game you've ever played before. I definitely saw Tetris blocks in there somewhere, but they were buried under several layers of intriguing visuals and audio, paired with discussion of people seeing Tetris blocks outside of playing the game itself. Owners of the PlayStation 4 Pro can also enjoy the game in 2D dimensions in 4k at 60fps. The game is expected for release this fall on the PlayStation 4.
Sony has announced Tetris Effect - a very trippy version of the classic game from the creator of Lumies and Rez. The Zone will allow players to get out of a Game Over scenario or rack up extra line clears for bonus rewards. Fan-favorite modes like Marathon, Sprint and Ultra will also return alongside new modes and features that will be revealed at a later date.
Tetris Effect will be playable at E3 this year, with the possibility of a demo coming later in the year.
A player grading and leveling system as well as variable difficulty to encourage and reward replayability. Per the game's official description, it's more or less Tetris as you know it - the insane imagery is mostly just there to enhance immersion and elicit emotions.
One of the greatest, most addictive videogames ever created is getting a virtual reality (VR) makeover by none other then Enhance Games.
The game won't be out until the fall, but expect to hear more about "Tetris Effect" at E3 over the next week.
