Xbox players have had to wait a while a long time for Tetris Effect, but they'll be rewarded with a head start on its expanded version with multiplayer come November 10. Yes, on the same day that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch, Tetris Effect: Connected will come to Microsoft's next-gen consoles, Xbox One, and PC.
First revealed back in July, the Connected update will add competitive and co-op multiplayer gameplay to Enhance Games' wonderfully blissed-out take on Tetris. Headlining the additions is the titular "Connected" mode which lets three players merge their Tetris play fields together and take turns dropping pieces.
On top of marking Tetris Effect's debut on Microsoft's consoles, the Connected update will also see it joining Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox and PC. If you've been holding out on purchasing Tetris Effect for PC, you'll also be able to get in on the Connected update on November 10 by buying it through the Microsoft Store.
Current Tetris Effect owners will need to wait a while to get the update. Enhance Games has announced that the PS4, Oculus Quest, and Epic Games Store PC releases of Tetris Effect will all get the Connected update for free, but it won't be coming until the summer of 2021.
UploadVR has confirmed that Tetris Effect: Connected will support virtual reality on PC for the Xbox Game Pass and Windows 10 store launches. For a while, that'll be the only way to get in on the multiplayer fun in VR.
