Tetris Effect Is Coming to PC With VR Support Next Week, Exclusive to Epic Games Store

Bump up the resolution and slide into the beats.

An ephemeral, dreamlike Tetris experience is coming to computers in a surprisingly short amount of time. Tetris Effect is coming to PC with support for both Oculus and Vive headsets on July 23, and it'll be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.

The PC version boasts the option to play at 4K or higher resolution, as well as uncapped framerate and ultra-wide monitor support. There are also minor settings you can mess with, like particle volume and size, as well as texture filtering. Basically, you can keep pumping this game up as far as your machine can handle.

Tetris Effect is a spectacular explosion of visual and audio within the simple setting of Tetris blocks simply falling into place. From legendary game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Tetris Effect is essentially Lumines meets Tetris, but cranked up to 11, and with VR support on a powerful PC it's likely a sight to see.

While the makers of Tetris Effect are already looking ahead and targeting next-gen consoles for its next project, it's nice to be able to look back on a game that we numbered among our top 20 games of the year in 2018.

However, the Epic Games Store exclusivity is bound to ruffle the feathers of those who would rather have it on other platforms. Me? I'm just happy it's coming to PC at all. I imagine that trying to run this at 4K and uncapped will turn my modest gaming computer into a basic schoolroom calculator, and I'm thrilled to do so a week from today on July 23.
