How can you tell a batch of Microsoft timed exclusivity contracts have expired? Hot on the heels of The Medium’s announcement for PlayStation 5, developer Enhance Games has confirmed that multiplayer expansion Tetris Effect: Connected will deploy as a free update for the existing PS4 game in July – and, yes, it’ll support PSVR.
As alluded to above, the update includes a batch of online and local multiplayer modes, including the titular Connected, which sees you working alongside other players in order to defeat a nefarious AI controlled boss – or, on the weekends, a real-world opponent. There’s also Zone Battle, Score Attack, and Classic Score Attack.
Even better, the release will support full crossplay, meaning you’ll be able to play against opponents from all platforms. That effectively ensures a healthy multiplayer community, which is good for lower-profile titles like this. A beta will be available for all existing owners of the game from 23rd June until 5th July, so if you want to check it out ahead of time, you can download that from the PS Store.
Awesome. I haven't played this in a long while, but this is exactly the sorta thing that'll drag me back in.
Even without VR, it's an absolutely sublime experience.
Man what a game. Playing this on a big 4k screen in surround sound is just an epic experience. Hopefully a full Tetris Effect 2 is coming with the PS5 VR😁😁
Amazing game. One of my favorites in probably the best video game year of the last generation.
If you haven't played this please do so. It can be played without a headset but really you're not getting the best experience that way.
Well I'm glad my physical copy isn't useless now, so I'm quite happy.
Yaaay, the 8 month exclusivity comes to an end!
I've loved Tetris Effect in VR. It's amazing. Simply amazing.
been waiting around for this to get a big fat sale price cut so I can add it to my immense backlog I'll never clear
Yeah.....i'll be getting this back down from the attic. Will plug the VR back in too!
The best version!!
Playing in VR is particularly brilliant, a definite must-have for those with a headset.
The multiplayer mode truly adds playtime and value to this already wonderful adaptation of Tetris.
One moment, I was at the top 2% of the world in online multiplayer. That will be quite a challenge with crossplay and so many (VR) players. Let's goooo!
Love this game, plays like a dream on ps5. Can't wait
Cool free update I guess, but I'm not really interested in battle royale online modes, wasn't there supposed to be another enhanced version of Tetris effect coming out for ps5 later on?
Great, been looking forward to this.
It's an OK Tetris game that can only benefit from the free update.
Tbh I don't get all the praise as a psvr game...it's one of the least VR games I've ever played. It's also criminally blurry considering it's Tetris and not doing too much that should be taxing the hardware.
There's better puzzle games that take advantage of the medium.
From the title i thought we were getting a free game, maybe a Plus addition. But no just an update.
Ah one of my favorite games of the PS4 generation back with online multiplayer.
God I love Tetris. None of my friends like it, but I’m a complete fiend.
I really wanted to play it in VR.
Alas, I made do with my tv and my 800 watt surround sound system. And it was still a mesmerizing experience.
Especially the finale level. Man that crap was trippy as hell.
I like the demo on PS4 when I played it but the only let down was no local multiplayer modes. But this update seems to give you that which is COOL
Absolutely down for me tetris, especially free tetris!
So it’s launching on Ps5? This article is confusing
