Not played it, however, watched a video where the developers got a Tetris expert to play it to see how he would cope in VR compared to a normal game, and after getting used to it a little he was absolutely smashing it, more so then a normal game of tetris.

Looks absolutely fantastic and a must-play for tetris fans.

Edit: This is the video, for anyone interested:

It's not free to play, it's a demo
Unbelievable in VR well worth a play. Heat from me
Free trial is available now, I just had a go in VR and it was quite an experience! Was gonna wait till it drops below 20 quid but apparently it's 25 percent off this weekend so might have to bite.

You're welcome
Definitely one of my fave VR games. It's super-immersive, but not in the "omg it feels so real" sense but rather more like you're literally just in a world of Tetris. Definitely best with headphones in. I have lost many hours melting away in a Tetris world.
Anyone know if this is just basically the demo again? Or access to all levels?

Really enjoy this game in VR along 2ith the songs. Really good experience. Hopefully will be able to unlock few level ups this weekend as still yet to get classic theme and song
Heat been waiting to give this a blast in VR!
Is this the same 4 levels as last time?
I have the full game of this and love it.

Zoom in to the table a little bit - makes it easier..
So it's just the same demo again? That's disappointing.

I guess it's a good thing for people who missed the demo before, but it's a shame that the demo can't be available all the time.
£26.24 for full version now. make sure you sign in to see this price. Wish they would drop Beat Saber
Just tried it, and wow, that's a trippy experience, even without the VR...!
Thanks for the heads up!
I'm glad I stuck to waiting for it to drop below £20: now I get to satisfy my curiosity, then wait until it's proper cheap. Unless it truly is amazing, and I think I'll play it for more than a few hours like any other Tetris game (nowadays - spent a lot of time on the Gameboy version!).

To be fair Beat Saber launched at pretty decent price of £25. I grabbed that straight away and it's fantastic, more than happy paying £25 for that, yet £35 for Tetris seems a bit mad even with some sparkly effects, the constant praise and the new reduced price is making me wobble now though.....will test the demo this weekend to see what the fuss is about.
It's not free to play, it's a demo

Beat Saber is one where it doesn't matter if you pay full price.
kool
Thanks but there is no VR in this demo then? Can anyone confirm as I can't find it if so. Cheers.
Would love to try it on my Rift. I hate exclusives.

How do you find the visuals? I tried it for a while but in VR it felt so jagged and almost PS2 level graphics that it was hard to focus in VR, things kept feeling like they were popping around, unless I moved the camera in as close as possible and then it was too big. I only have the original PS4 though, so not sure if there's a big step in performance in PS4 pro. Although you'd have thought if Astrobot can look as good as it does, tetris could pull it off..

Hmmm I can't say I had any issues myself but I am on a ps4 pro so there might be improvements. It's not the sharpest looking game but the I found all the effects pretty cool.
Thanks for the link, can anyone explain why you can't find it on a store search on the PS4 though?
... I heard this is amazing to play when you've tried the Holy Bush with the music turned up 👌
Ooh time to dust off the headset and get started with Creed at the same time
I can’t find it in the store. Just the 25% discounted full game. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Same here
Oh yes! Mega thanks OP. I play Tetris Ultimate pretty much every time I switch on my PS4 and I've wanted to try this for ages.
