Tetris Effect, which first launched for PlayStation 4 in November 2018, is coming to PC via the Epic Games Store on July 23, developer Enhance Games announced.

Here is an overview of the PC version, via Enhance Games:

About

Tetris Effect is Tetris like you’ve never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before—an incredibly addictive, unique, and breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, from the people who brought you the award-winning Rez Infinite and legendary puzzle game Lumines. Fully playable on either a standard display—with unlocked resolution and uncapped framerate (with Vsync disabled)—or optionally in mind-blowing 3D on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

As the ultimate version of Tetris Effect, the PC version is capable of running at resolutions of 4K or more, with an uncapped framerate (if Vsync is disabled), and includes ultra-wide monitor support as well as other expanded game and graphical options for both 2D and VR play (including adjustable particle volume and size, texture filtering, and more) not found in the PlayStation 4 console release.

Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetriminos themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you’re playing, making any of the game’s 30+ stages and 10+ modes something you’ll want to experience over and over again.

A challenge for the mind and a feast for all the senses, Tetris Effect is the perfect excuse to play Tetris again… and again…and again, and again, and again and again and again and again and again and again and…

Key Features

  • VR Optional: Playable on your PC desktop, or in full VR with your Oculus Rift or HTC VIVE headset and accompanying controllers (standard gamepads, VIVE Controllers, and Oculus Remote and Touch controllers are all supported).
  • All-new “Zone” Mechanic: Players can stop time (and Tetriminos falling) by entering “the Zone” and either get out of a sticky situation that could otherwise lead to “Game Over,” or rack up extra Line Clears for bonus scoring rewards.
  • Over 30 Different Stages: Each with its own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them.
  • Enhanced PC Visuals & More: Unlocked resolution and an uncapped framerate if Vsync is disabled, increased texture and particle effect options, support for super high-resolution and ultrawide monitors, and more.
