Tetris Effect Comes to PC July 23 via Epic Games Store with Optional VR Support

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).

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
