Back when Tetris Effect launched on PS4, it was with full support for the original PSVR. At the time, we thought it was glorious, but realistically, the hardware's limitations meant the picture was never super clear. The spectacle of this flashy take on the familiar falling block puzzle game wasn't lost on us, though, and it remains a...
Once more with feeling
If only it was easy to put into words how Tetris Effect will make you feel. Unfortunately, there’s a reason we’re here writing reviews rather than best-sellers, but we’re going to give it our best shot. Much like Rez Infinite before it, there’s something melancholy and moving about Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s take on the...
Tetris Effect: Connected is temporarily unlocking two of its secret levels in celebration of the new Tetris movie, which is currently streaming on Apple TV+. The two levels (which you can check out in the above trailer) are called 1984 and 1989, respectively, with retro designs invoking the Golden Age of Tetris. Did you know that...
Tetris Effect (or Tetris Effect: Connected if you want to get serious about it) is a magnificent falling block puzzler that we've played a lot on PS4 and PSVR. However, we're itching to get acquainted with the game all over again when it launches on PS5 day and date with PSVR2. It's going to look so good with the spangly new hardware. The...
Tetris® Effect: Connected is Tetris like you've never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before—an incredibly addictive, unique, and breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, from the people who brought you the award-winning Rez Infinite and legendary puzzle game Lumines.
Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetriminos themselves—pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you're playing, making any of the game's 30+ stages and 10+ modes something you'll want to experience over and over again.
Plus cross-platform multiplayer modes for competitive and cooperative play!
Close your eyes to enter the ZONE: With PS VR2 eye tracking enabled in the game options, you can enter the ZONE by closing and then opening your eyes.
PS VR2 headset feedback: Transport yourself into the world of Tetris Effect: Connected where you can feel key moments in gameplay. Transitions are physical as you move between Journey Mode stages. Feel the jolt of the haptics as you go into and out of the ZONE.
Enhanced haptic feedback: New vibration settings utilize the new dual-actuators of the DualSense PS5 controller and the PS VR2 Sense controllers adding a new layer of sensory stimulation.
An exhilarating single-player experience full of surprises: 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.
The Zone is an all-new mechanic designed just for Tetris Effect: Connected! 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.
Cross-platform multiplayer lets you play with players from all over the world! Players on different platforms can easily join Friend Match rooms with the new Room ID feature.
A wide variety of competitive and co-op modes! Among the new modes is "CONNECTED," where three players can team up and literally connect their Tetris Matrices to fight against A.I.-controlled Bosses; "Zone Battle," a one-on-one match of standard competitive Tetris, but with a twist: the time-stopping Zone mechanic; and "Score Attack" and "Classic Score Attack,” two single-player versus modes where two players compete separately to see who can get the best score.
Join in on the fun in Spectator mode! Spectator mode is available in Friend Matches. A room can contain up to 8 total people. Spectators can use emotes during the match to liven up the competition.
