We’ve all played Tetris before, as was pointed out in the aftermath of last week’s announcement stream. What we’ve never played before is Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s take on the legendary puzzler, but we’ll all get a chance later this year in Tetris Effect on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. And it’s looking absolutely outstanding.
This gameplay footage streamed direct from Sony’s E3 2018 booth focuses on the television version, which will be playable in 4K at 60 frames-per-second on the PS4 Pro. And it looks just as trippy as the trailer made it out to be – there’s screen shake, there’s particle effects, and so much more.
The aesthetics are all in service of the audio, and the soundtrack is being created bespoke for the game. This means that, yes, the song you heard in the reveal trailer is in the game – it plays during the first level in fact. Speaking in the video, Enhance Games’ Mark MacDonald pointed out that you should consider buying the game if you want to hear all of the music – but we’re sure there’s going to be some kind of soundtrack release, too.
