As promised, Sony has kicked off its countdown to E3 with the reveal of a brand new PS4 game that supports the PSVR headset. That game is Tetris Effect.
Yup, Tetris – the game we’ve known and loved for decades now. But this isn’t just any old Tetris; this is developed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Enhance games, the team that brought us Rez Infinite on PSVR back in 2016. Expect an experience very similar to that classic, with neon lighting. The game’s coming this fall.
The name tips its hat to a real world effect in which the images of Tetris blocks linger in a player’s vision after extended sessions. Tetris Effect will include over 30 stages including an all-new Zone mechanic that allows players to stop time.
There are two more PSVR games set to be revealed this weekend. On Saturday at 8am PT/4pm BST we’ll see another new VR title, while on Sunday Sony will reveal that an ‘eagerly anticipated game’ is on its way to PSVR. We’ve got bets on what they could be.
All of this is counting down to Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday, June 11th, where we’re bound to see yet more new VR games. Best strap in; it’s going to be a busy week.
