One of the greatest, most addictive videogames ever created is getting a virtual reality (VR) makeover by none other then Enhance Games. The studio behind the visually stunning Rez Infinite has announced work on Tetris Effect for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.
Celebrating the 34th anniversary of the iconic Tetris brand, Enhance Inc. and The Tetris Company, LLC, Tetris Effect aims to amplify the feeling of total immersion by surrounding players with fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how they play.
Enhance Games will be using its considerable knowledge of light and sound to create an experience where the music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects – basically everything – even down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how the videogame is played.
Tetris Effect is still the core Tetris videogame everyone knows and loves, just with a new visual gloss. With 30-plus stages for players to experience the new title also features 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.
There will also be fan-favorite modes like Marathon, Sprint, and Ultra, and a player grading and leveling system as well as variable difficulty to encourage and reward replayability. In the run up to launch more all-new modes and other features are set to be revealed.
Tetris Effect will launch this Fall for PlayStation 4 with optional support for PlayStation VR. Enhance Games will be demoing the title for the first time at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2018 next week on the PlayStation booth.
