There will be iterations of Tetris coming out until the inevitable end of existence itself, and every once in a while, there are some genuinely cool interpretations of the classic game. This November, the trippy-looking Tetris Effect is coming to PS4 and PSVR, and players will be able to try it over a week early thanks to a demo this weekend.
The puzzle game, as a reminder, comes from Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Enhance Games, who were also behind Rez and Lumines. With stylish visuals, familiar modes, and new game mechanics, namely a time-stopping feature called “Zone,” Tetris Effect looks like a fresh take on an old classic.
Old-fashioned PS4 owners can play both the demo and the finished game in 2D on their television, or in 3D on their PlayStation VR set. I’m struggling to find any other way to compliment the game’s look, other than, well, it looks cool. I haven’t played any iteration of Tetris since the Puyo Puyo crossover, so this demo may help me decide if I want another go-around.
THE FREE TETRIS EFFECT: WEEKEND TRIAL DEMO IS COMING! Starting Nov. 1 worldwide you can download a free limited-time demo of Tetris Effect on PlayStation Store, fully playable in 2D or optionally in VR! It’s all over come Nov. 5 so don’t sleep on this!! pic.twitter.com/C3SSSqSsL4
