Epic Games Store to Exclusively Sell Tetris Effect for PC, VR Support Will be Available
The PlayStation VR has had its fair few virtual reality (VR) exclusives, with one of the biggest in 2018 being Enhance Games’ Tetris Effect. Now the studio has announced that the title will be coming to PC via the Epic Games Store next week, with additional support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
In a move that will likely annoy a few PC and VR gamers alike, Tetris Effect will be an Epic Games Store exclusive. To tempt PC players this will be the ultimate version with a few additional bells and whistles attached. For instance, 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.
Plus there are expanded gameplay and graphical options not found in the console release for both 2D and VR, such as adjustable particle volume and size, texture filtering, and more.
The core videogame still features over 30 stages, each with its own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them. Also, there’s the new ‘Zone’ mechanic where you can stop time to either change tack to avoid losing or rack up bonus scoring rewards by clearing more lines.
Tetris Effect for PC will launch via Epic Games Store next Tuesday, 23rd July, offering a 20% launch promotion discount. That reduces the price from £31.99 GBP down to £25.59. Additionally, whether you pre-order the video or buy it before 6th August you’ll get all of Tetris Effect’s Digital Deluxe DLC bundle of extra bonus content for free (10 Tetris Effect themed 4K Desktop Wallpapers and an Original Soundtrack Sampler with 7 tracks).
