PC Tetris Effect Next Week on Epic Games Store

The Tetris Effect Website announces that Tetris Effect is coming to PCs on July 23rd as an Epic Games Store exclusive. This will feature 4K resolution or optional support for Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE virtual reality. The game is now available for preorder with a 20% discount and some limited time bonuses. Here's a PC Announce Trailer and here are more details:

Enhance and The Tetris Company, Inc. announced today that the ultimate version of their award-winning game Tetris® Effect is coming to the PC on July 23rd, with optional VR-support for Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE, available exclusively on the Epic Games Store. Originally released on PlayStation®4 late last year, Tetris Effect was hailed as a breakthrough title by fans and critics alike, earning an 89 Metacritic score and 60+ awards and nominations from major outlets, including overall “2018 Game of the Year” honors from Giant Bomb and Eurogamer, and various “Best of 2018” awards from The New Yorker, Polygon, The Washington Post, IGN, GameSpot, The Verge, PlayStation Blog, and many more.

As the ultimate version of Tetris Effect, the PC version is capable of running at resolutions of 4K or more with an uncapped framerate (with Vsync disabled), and includes ultra-wide monitor support as well as other expanded game and graphical options not found in the console release for both 2D and VR play (including adjustable particle volume and size, texture filtering, and more).

I want a Battle Royale mode, or GTFO.

Like I said, get a Switch. Game is called Tetris 99, it's a free perk with their online service. Literally you and 98 others competing against each other in every round.

Can't tell if serious.

This was always meant to be a PS4 exclusive, so it'll be exclusive to another sub-par platform. Nothing new.

yeah its an epic store exclusive, but you could do much worse with your money. at least a portion of your purchase will go to the original creator of tetris, which you cannot say for many franchises as old as this

My Roadmap:

Every month or so, check to see if Epic has a decent, fully-fledged, competent and sufficiently functional platform yet. If or when that happens, reconsider. Until then, care = care -1.

I played this quite a bit on the PS4, super chill game and really good bang for the buck.

Well, just be happy that it’s no longer exclusive to the PS4, as so many other VR games are. It might be an exclusive but so are tons of games on Oculus’ store, where’s the daily hate for THAT?

I feel like Oculus generally gets way more hate for its VR exclusives than Sony does. Just on this board I know Slick gets super triggered, and it's the same on Reddit. People, including CJ Parker, tend to handwave away Sony's exclusives as a natural consequence of them being a console company, even when it applies to entrenched PC games like Borderlands or Skyrim.

But on a day-to-day basis, I'd say people would complain more about Oculus if their exclusives were worth caring about. They've had a few worthwhile titles, especially right around the Rift and Touch launches, but I think they make more misses than hits. I thought Vader Immortal and the Marvel game were garbage, which is like turning gold into lead.

Can we use our save file to carry over the decisions we make in the first game to Tetris Effect 2?

nice, very excited. Oddly the blurb says Rift and Vive specifically - hopefully this also means Index support (there are a handful of games on steam that claim index headset support but end up not having knuckles support [The Forest, In Death, Budget Cuts])

also +1 to exclusive hate

Meh, good if you wanted VR version on PC I guess. Its $20 on PS4 these days, disc version even which is about the max I'd pay for a tetris game these days.

No VR, no sale!

I'm kidding, but a 3D Tetris game in VR would be cool.

EDIT: LOL, just watched the trailer, apparently it has VR.

EDIT EDIT: Er, also says so in the blurb. Reading, itz hard. Dunce

Nice! Good seeing a proper, modern, official Tetris game on PC again. Was just thinking about this the other day and wondering if a port was ever going to happen.

(wtf, exclusive, wtf, wtf, etc.)
