Tetris Effect Announced for PS4 and PlayStation VR by REZ Creator

Kicking off the countdown to E3, Sony today revealed the first of a handful of new games coming to PlayStation 4.

As promised a couple of days ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a brand new PS4 game during a pre-E3 livestream.

The PS4 game with optional VR support comes from the studio Enhance, creators of "Lumines" and "Rez Infinite".

Enhance promises an immersive experience where "Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects - everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in flawless sync with how you're playing".

The game at its heart is still Tetris and it'll include several fan-favorite modes like Sprint, Marathon and Ultra as well as new variants like Zone which allows players to freeze time to either maneuver out of a potentially game-ending scenario or clear extra lines for bonus rewards.

"TETRIS EFFECT amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play". The core of the game is still Tetris-one of the most popular puzzle games of all time-but like you've never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before.

Fully playable on either a standard display (up to 4K and 60fps on a PS4™Pro), or optionally in mind-blowing 3D on PS VR. There will also be a player grading and levelling system, as well as various difficulties to to add to replayability.

Tetris Effect doesn't have an official release date at this time, but it is now slated to launch sometime this Fall.

The press release did not mention full exclusivity, but not other platforms were mentioned, at least for now.
