What you need to know

  • Tetris Effect is coming to the Epic Games Store on July 23, 2019.
  • Tetris Effect was previously exclusive to PlayStation 4, with PSVR support.

Tetris Effect initially released on PlayStation 4 (with PSVR support) on November 9, 2018. Directed by Takashi Ishihara, it's widely praised as reinvigorating Tetris, with stunning visuals and music. More players will be able to experience it soon, with a new trailer revealing that Tetris Effect is headed to the Epic Games Store on July 23, 2019.

Watch the trailer for Tetris Effect on PC below:

Tetris Effect on Windows PC will include the ability to run at 4K resolution with an uncapped framerate, or on an ultrawide monitor. It'll support the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets, alongside all accompanying controllers, as well as the regular gamepad. There's also a ton of new settings to tweak, spanning particle density, texture filtering and more.

A new mechanic dubbed "Zone" has been added too, which allows players to escape difficult situations that could otherwise mean Game Over.

Tetris Effect will cost $39.99 on the Epic Games Store, however, with preorders granted a further discount, pricing drops to $31.99. Anyone who preorders will also secure a bundle of digital extras, including ten 4K wallpapers and seven entries from the game's soundtrack.

Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse (opens in new tab) ($30 at Amazon)

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

AmazonBasics USB speakers (opens in new tab) ($16 at Amazon)

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Razer mouse bungee (opens in new tab) ($20 at Amazon)

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
