The new Tetris® Effect: Connected update introduces Cross-Platform Multiplayer and launches on PS4 August 18, 2021. Players on different platforms can easily join Friend Match rooms with the new Room ID feature.
Spectator Mode is available in Friend Matches. A room can contain up to 8 total people, so depending on the mode, the max number of spectators would be 5 in Connected Mode to 6 in any of the 1v1 modes.
Classic Score Attack will have a new option to replicate European (PAL) version of the original Tetris. It has fewer framerates, faster horizontal movement, and higher gravity in late levels.
The new option in Zone Battle will slow down the game. Slow Mode has longer entry delay and slower horizontal movement.
NOTE: These options are only available for Friend Matches and Local Matches. Ranked Matches are always played with default settings.
Tetris Effect: Connected adds an all-new robust multiplayer expansion to the huge variety of addictive and innovative single-player modes that Tetris Effect is known for with all-new co-op and competitive online and local multiplayer modes!
