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.
I'm so ridiculously excited for this.
This just looks like Tetris Ultimate with different graphics to me. Is it only single player? Should I get this if I already have Puyo Puyo Tetris?
Yea this is just about my fave out of E3. Pretty crazy I know, but I sure do love me some Tetris and combining that with VR and an acid trip...that's a big hell yes
The YouTube trailer for it has had about a million views in less then week, so it shows you that Tetris still has reach especially if it's offering something a bit different.
One of my favourite announcements of E3. It looks superb.
The ubisoft version was a disgrace, hopefully this will crack on it from a great height.
It's always refreshing to see classics brought back to life in such an exciting way. Definitely one to watch. Some are too eager to dismiss ideas that are old, but I say they are legendary classics for good reason.
@KnockKnock This is going to be much more of an "experience" than Tetris has ever been, particularly in virtual reality. The visuals and music are sure to make this pure escapism.
Have you ever played Lumines or Rez?
I love Tetris so much... I wonder how VR will bring something meaningful to the gameplay. Im in anyway. What I think we need is a PSVR headset with increased resolution. Im playing racing games on cinematic mode and its a blast, amazing. But the resolution is not so adecuate.
"4K at 60 frames-per-second on the PS4 Pro", come on it's just Tetris XD
