Waiting for Next-Gen's Killer App? Tetris Plops onto PS4 Soon

In an infinite spin

Content hungry PlayStation 4 owners may feel like pulling shapes shortly, as Ubisoft has announced that it's bringing a brand new version of Tetris to the next generation console. According to a shock press release slammed into our inbox earlier today, the French publisher has snapped up the rights to the classic Russian puzzler, meaning that you should expect lots of line clearing action on Sony’s super machine soon.

Sadly, the firm stopped short of sharing any additional details, meaning that we’ve got everything crossed for a true successor to Tetris Plus on the PSone. The last version of the shape shifting favourite deployed on the PlayStation 3 back in 2011, and was published by Electronic Arts. Despite being a pretty straightforward take on the formula, the six-player online battle mode meant that we lost quite a lot of time to it. Let’s hope that it makes a return here.

There’s no mention of a release date in the Assassin’s Creed maker’s documentation, but the firm is eager to point out that the series will celebrate its 30th anniversary in June. "We're very excited to start working with this world-renowned brand," said Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot. "[We] can't wait to combine Ubisoft's expertise and all of the capacities of next-gen consoles to create an exciting new Tetris experience for fans." Do you share the executive’s enthusiasm?

Snarky headline aside, I must admit that I'm also looking forward to this. I have a horrible feeling it's going to be overpriced, though.

Tetris is what my iPhone is for. If it's a free download then sure, but paying for Tetris on my PS4 I will pass.

Tetris has always been one of my favorite games. I still play it on NES. It always puts a smile on my face watching that rocket blast off into space

I don't care how flashy it is. I ain't gonna pay more than a fiver for a tetris game full stop. Tetris is one game that won't ever go away.
