Tetris Effect & Connected - PS4 joins on July 4th


Recommended Posts

The only game my wife actually likes/ plays is Tetris and weve had great fun playing Tetris Effect Connected on Game Pass ... for those of you who have played local multiplayer, do you know if there is a way to change the music or theme? 

 

Weve settled on Zone Attack as our favourite game mode, but getting bored of the default tune and background it offers. We were hoping to tap into the amazing back ground graphics and tunes from the main game but cant see an option to change it within the local multiplayer menus? Anyone else had any luck with this?

First question: am I on drugs?

 

The campaign mode is trippy. Love it. Some great multiplayer modes as well.

 

The soundtrack is great, i've used it to fall asleep to several times.

:) If you have a VR headset and a PC the GamePass version was patched just before Xmas to use it. Relaxing experience. Nearly fell asleep a few times with the headset on :D

Once you complete the journey mode you can do a play through where you just push a button to skip through the bits of the journey, essentially just Effect without the Tetris. My daughter loved that. 
 

Anyways, I’m a couple of games off getting to level 100 and I think that’s all the achievements done then.

Playing Score Attack last night, my rank is 8000 something and I end up waiting aaaaaaages for matches. But got matched against a 6500 ish player pretty quickly, I started off pretty well, but every time  I check the score I’m only a little bit ahead. 
 

Ok this guy is good, better concentrate. 
 

He overtakes me right before he dies. I managed to hold on, nearly lost it a couple of times. I cannot go much beyond 200 lines as it’s too fast for me. Phew!

This game is ruining gaming for me at the moment - every time I switch on the Xbox I think just a quick go and then I'll play something from my Game Pass list of shame - then its bedtime. Problem is I'm so shit at it and just keep playing the beginner 3 levels of journey over and over and over trying to get a better score than A. However, that video up page with the T-Spins, man I wish I'd not seen that. Now thats all I'm gonna be trying to do and it looks like a mind fuck. Wah wah wah videgames!

Apologies if it's old news, but apparently Connected has a new secret level in addition to the old "1989" level

 

On checking out some sources, it might actually be in both vanilla and Connected? Although I don't have it installed at present...

The second secret level has been found, but is still not widely known about: 1984, our tribute to the original version of Tetris for the Electronika 60, the old Soviet PC Alexey Pajinov first created the game on!

Accessing it on consoles requires the use of a USB keyboard (PS4/Xbox/Oculus), chat pad (Xbox), or some way to enter text that is not reliant on an OS-level pop-up (gotta have the hardware for it—this is not for the feint of heart!).

First, you must enter a code with your controller at the title screen (prior to pressing start). If you’re using a Dual Shock 4 or PlayStation-compatible control pad, press (directional pad) Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, O, X. If you’re on Xbox, using Oculus controllers or have an Xbox-style controller, enter in (directional pad) Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.

If successful, you should see a screen like this:

Enter in 06061984 -- the date of the birth of Tetris -- with your keyboard as mentioned above, and press enter. You’ll get a message that “1984” has been unlocked, available to use in any of the many "Effect Modes" (and once you unlock this, it remains unlocked). You might even hear a familiar voice talking! What’s he saying, exactly…? Let’s save some mysteries for another day!

Why is PS4 listed there? Connected still has not been released on PS4, has it?

 

I didn't read it properly - I think this is a secret for vanilla and Connected versions.

 

EDIT: it is! I've unlocked it for vanilla TE.

Will any bog-standard USB keyboard work?

Just done it myself - it felt so good to be putting in a good old fashioned cheat code, getting unlockables the way it used to be done and not just by DLC!

 

The skin itself has a very basic utilitarian vibe to it, until the last phase where I found the colours got quite hard to read.

Cross-Platform Play

Invite PlayStation friends to Multiplayer matches directly as always, or share the four-digit alphanumeric Room ID code to challenge friends on whatever platform they game on! (If you’re a streamer and want to keep out uninvited guests, don’t worry — you can easily opt to hide your Room ID from the UI). And unless you opt out of it via the Options, Ranked Matches will also bring in players from all platforms, all over the world, for a larger player base and better chance you can get matched with an opponent near your skill level.
