Nothing can prepare you for…Tetris Ultimate

1 min read


Tetris. Older than time and that fruitcake in the freezer. More powerful than entire world governments. Able to crush even the hardest of men when they reach level 16. You think you know Tetris? You don’t know jack-squat son. So you prepare yourself. You get ready…for Tetris Ultimate.

Way back in the ancient dark ages of June 1984, the original Tetris was hatched by its lord and master Alexey Pajitnov. Who may have been double-screwed over by the Soviet government. Comrades. Thirty years later, and an even bigger empire, Ubisoft, now owns the game rights and is planning to celebrate three decades of waiting for that long block to appear so that you can get five lines at once, with Teris Ultimate.

So what makes this the “Ultimate” Tetris? According to Ubisoft, this version will be split across all the current-gen consoles and PC, and include multiplayer stretched across modes such as Marathon, Battle, Power-Up Battle, Ultra, Endless and Spirit. Thousands shall die as Tetris Ultimate absorbs their life force whenever they bugger up a line, although that part may have been omitted from the press release.

To be honest, there’s only one thing that Tetris Ultimate needs to be successful. This track:

The game is scheduled for an E3 appearance. Where Ultra Street Tetris will most likely be unveiled for a 2016 release.

    my wife is an accomplished pianist (amongst other instruments), played in concerts, that sort of things. Started playing age 2, lessons and formal training from age 4.

    Her fingers move very quickly and assuredly in games like this. If she bothered to play. She plays sometimes, sets high scores, on websites where many people play, and then gets bored. She still reckons keyboard is much better than xbox controller for this type of quick thinking, quick moving game.

    Who knows?, just interesting to me.

      I know it’s off topic, but has ANYBODY in SA had any luck getting the “Untouchables Pack” which is supposed to be available via the season pass downloaded and working on PS4… I have followed the instructions to resolve this on the Ubisoft support site to the letter but the untouchables pack only appears in the US PS Store and the moment you sign in it switches you to the SA PS Store which can’t find any results for “Untouchables Pack”…
