Tetris Effect: Connected Finally Supports Oculus Quest, PSVR and SteamVR in July

Eight months ago Enhance Games announced Tetris Effect: Connected, a multiplayer version of the videogame where you could compete across five new modes which feature co-op and PvP gameplay. At the time it was only for Xbox and PC via the Microsoft Store. Next month that all changes as all versions of Tetris Effect will get the multiplayer update, plus there’s going to be a Steam edition.

With the rollout of Tetris Effect: Connected in July PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest and the Epic Games Store will be fully cross-platform compatible with each other. Whilst the Steam version will include support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Friend Match players will be able to invite players from other platforms via a shareable 4-digit alphanumeric “Room ID” code alongside their platform’s own invite system. This cross-platform should help maximize the player base for Ranked Matches.

Plus there are a bunch of bonus features coming in the update. Spectator Mode (Friend Matches Only) will allow between 4 and 6 additional players, depending on the mode, to join a match as spectators. PAL Speed (Classic Score Attack Mode, Friend and Local Matches Only) has been designed to replicate the feeling of the European PAL format of the Tetris game from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). And Slow Speed (Zone Battle Mode, Friend and Local Matches Only) is great for beginners with a longer entry delay for new Tetriminos and slower horizontal movement.

But before Tetris Effect: Connected arrives, Enhance Games and the development teams will hosting a beta test period starting this week. Depending on the platform Tetris Effect (Owner’s Beta) will be a free download for current owners or a Closed Beta which is only accessible via a code from Enhance.
