We do love a bit of Tetris Effect here at Push Square, so we were super excited when Enhance Games announced Connected, a multiplayer add-on coming to the game for free. Unfortunately, PlayStation 4 users have had to wait roughly eight months for the expansion. The good news is that the wait is very nearly over — it launches next month on 18th August.
The complimentary update will add all the Connected modes to the existing game, which let you play cooperatively and competitively with your buddies. The titular mode sees you and two others joining forces to clear lines together and take down bosses. Meanwhile, Zone Battle pits you against another player in a head-to-head match with the Zone mechanic enabled, and Score Attack has you and a competitor playing separately for a high score.
What's more, this update will also enable cross platform play with all other systems, meaning you'll have plenty of people to drop blocks with. There's also Spectator Mode so you can watch skilled players compete, a PAL Speed feature that replicates how the game felt on the NES, and a Slow Speed mode that, well, slows the speed of the game if you want.
Again, it's all free and comes as a game update for all players, so you just need to watch out for the patch when it arrives on the 18th August. Will you be playing Tetris Effect: Connected? T-spin into the comments section below.
