Tetris Effect is a Weird Psychedelic Tetris Game for PS4 and PSVR

Earlier this week, Sony announced that they'd be making a game announcement every day from today until E3.

"By having each of more than 30 stages immerse you in a different fantastical world that reacts and evolves based on how you play: background elements, audio, special effects - everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, make music, explode, etc.in flawless sync with how you're playing". Tetris Effect supports up to 4K60FPS visuals, and optional PSVR use - yep, as is the deal with a lot of PSVR titles recently the hardware isn't required to play. Coming to PS4 with a PS VR mode in "Fall 2018", this is a game from Tetsuya Mizuguchi and the minds behind Rez Infinite and Lumen. 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. He then went on to confirm that Tetris Effect runs at 4K in 60fps on the PS4 Pro and is playable in full HD on the PS4.

By now, you're probably well-aware of what Tetris gameplay entails; it's not the most complicated of games (though it is very addicting).

Despite the numerous changes off the bench on either side, the tempo of the game never slowed down instead it went up a notch. The Super Eagles lost 2-1 to England in their penultimate friendly encounter before heading out for Russian Federation .

I'm also old enough to remember Tetris before all of these whimsical shapes and colors, so I guess this game is really meant for a new generation of players who enjoy all of this razzle-dazzle.

Tetris Effect doesn't have an official release date at this time, but it is now slated to launch sometime this Fall. No other platforms were mentioned.
