EA and Blue Planet Software have announced the release of Tetris for PlayStation Network so millions of players on PS3’s worldwide will now have the opportunity to download and play the game they all know and love but this time with 1080p HD graphics, high-quality 5.1 surround sound audio, and all-new ways to play including online against other Tetris players from around the globe.
“EA has developed Tetris on more than 15 platforms to date, and we’re excited to bring Tetris to millions of gamers worldwide on PlayStation Network,” said Adam Sussman, Vice President of Worldwide Publishing for EA Mobile. “This is Tetris made for a big screen,” said Alexey Pajitnov, creator of the Tetris game. “We’re very excited to bring Tetris to PlayStation Network with new game modes offering different and fun new ways to play. With high-definition graphics and surround sound, this Tetris game is a full experience.”
Tetris players can now play online or locally with up to six friends in all-new game modes. The first of those modes is “Shared” mode which enables two players to team-up to combine their efforts and clear lines together. The next mode is “Team Battle” that allows two teams of two to play against one another, alternating between offense and defense as they compete for the win. Even the well-known “Battle” mode has been enhanced with new Power-Ups for more fast-paced fun. Long-time Tetris fans need not worry, as the game also includes the famous “Marathon” mode but for a new twist, now multiplayer games let up to four players locally play “Marathon” mode at the same time.
