As with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Codemasters’ DiRT 5, Enhance Games’ Tetris Effect: Connected will be a launch title for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. However, it will also be coming to Xbox One, PC and Xbox Game Pass on November 10th. This will mark the surreal puzzler’s debut on the Xbox family of consoles.
Of course, Tetris Effect: Connected isn’t a simple port. Along with native 4K/60 FPS support on Xbox Series X and PC, it also adds new multiplayer modes. There’s “Zone Battle” which makes for one-on-one games featuring the Zone mechanic and “Connected” mode for three players to work together against AI bosses. All of this is in addition to the base game’s single-player modes and 30 stages.
Those looking forward to playing the new content on PS4, PC via Epic Games Store and Oculus Quest will need to wait. It’s coming as a free update in Summer 2021, which could mean a release as late as September 2021. As always, stay tuned for more details and check out our review for the PS4 version here.
