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

To kick things off, Sony revealed a Tetris Effect trailer that brings a modern VR spin on the classic puzzle game. I definitely saw Tetris blocks in there somewhere, but they were buried under several layers of intriguing visuals and audio, paired with discussion of people seeing Tetris blocks outside of playing the game itself.

"Tetris Effect", a new game by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, is headed to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR this fall, PlayStation announced today during their first Countdown to E3 stream.

Named after a real-world phenomenon where players' brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, Tetris Effect amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play. The audio, background elements, special effects and even the Tetris pieces themselves dance, pulse, shimmer and explode in flawless sync based on how you are playing.




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). So, how will Tetris Effect actually play? It also has a new Zone mechanic. There are more than 30 stages to play, and the game offers multiple display options, with support for 4K resolution on a PS4 Pro and VR capabilities with the PSVR.

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