Tetris Effect (2018), the latest entry in the iconic tile-stacker series, is officially available starting today on PC, which also includes support for VR headsets.
Update (July 23rd, 2019): The PC version is finally here, letting Oculus Rift & HTC Vive users play with their accompanying controllers (standard gamepads, Vive Controllers, and Oculus Remote and Touch controllers). The original article announcing availability on PC follows below.
Original Article (July 16th, 2019): Tetris Effect for PC is coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store, and is said to support both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift—including gamepads & their respective motion controllers.
Originally released on PlayStation 4 late last year, Tetris Effect for PC is said to run on traditional monitors at resolutions of 4K or more with an uncapped framerate (with Vsync disabled), and includes ultra-wide monitor support.
Both 2D and the VR mode are said to feature a few more settings than the PS4 version, including adjustable particle volume and size, texture filtering, and more.
Starting today and ending in two weeks, Tetris Effect for PC will be 20% off as part of a special launch promotion (MSRP $40), and include a DLC pack with a seven-track sampler of the game’s soundtrack by Hydelic, and also 10 Tetris Effect-themed 4K desktop wallpapers.
Although Tetris Effect fundamentally offers the same gameplay as the 1984 original, the latest of the franchise boasts a number of added effects such as dynamic music, a constantly changing environment, and a bevy of alternative modes to keep your butt in the chair.
