Countdown to E3 2018 Announcements -Watch Reveal of New PS4 Game Live Here Today

As promised a couple of days ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a brand new PS4 game during a pre-E3 livestream.

Tetris Effect is still the core Tetris videogame everyone knows and loves, just with a new visual gloss. Owners of the PlayStation 4 Pro can also enjoy the game in 2D dimensions in 4k at 60fps.

The venerable falling blocks game is pegged for a PlayStation VR rebirth this fall.

The first game to be revealed is Tetris Effect, which is being created by the maker of REZ and Lumines.

From deep beneath the ocean to the furthest reaches of outer space and everywhere between, TETRIS EFFECT's 30-plus stages take players on a wondrous, emotional journey through the universe.

A player grading and leveling system as well as variable difficulty to encourage and reward replayability.

Today's offering will be a new "New PS4 game With PS VR support" according to the post - we'll be sure to have all the details about the title as soon as we can.

Tetris Effect will be playable on the show floor at E3 2018 and a demo is in the works as well.

I'm also old enough to remember Tetris before all of these whimsical shapes and colors, so I guess this game is really meant for a new generation of players who enjoy all of this razzle-dazzle. The core of the game is still Tetris-one of the most popular puzzle games of all time-but like you've never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before.

This version of Tetris will include features and modes fans are accustomed to, including Marathon (play until you die), Sprint (everything is faster), and Ultra (play with a time limit).
