    Well, colour me underwhelmed. I'd imagine that the probability of these Tetris games (noting that they're talking about a series of games) being inferior to, say, the Gameboy version is pretty close to one.

    “I am 100% sure they will develop one of the best versions of the Tetris game ever.”

    Can never beat the Game Boy version, Sorry!

    ^^ this

    Will be interesting to see how Ubisoft manage to screw something as simple as Tetris up, because they probably will some how.

    ^ This.

    This brings me visions of them making Tetris in a totally 3 Dimensional form, with 3D blocks and multiple sides to tackle. :nono:

    Can't wait for the next appropriate game-software for a next-gen console... HD Noughts and Crosses, anyone?

    An extensive singeplayer campaign in which players start with single block types and progressively unlock more as they complete missions! Or, unlock the full experience right away for $4.99 on the Uplay Store*!

    Always-on connection to the Uplay Utetris network**! Keep in touch with all of your friends as you fight to save the block world one line at a time. Share your high scores, screenshots and more in real time.

    A vast and detailed world is before you. With a variety of environments to play in such as a forest, city, volcano, and alone in your parents' basement trying to escape from the cruel reality of their eventual divorce***!

    Utetris. Block on.



    * - Pricing subject to change. USD, GBP and EUR prices chosen arbitrarily and not linked by any exchange rate or standards.
    ** - Network connection required for all Utetris play.
    *** - Childhood memories may vary. Ubisoft is not responsible for any unearthed trauma.

    Unless they bring in Achievements and a good Co-op/Multiplayer I'm not even going to think about this..

    And it goes without says there better be at least some form of Walkthrough for the single player part. The original version didn't even have that! :wallbash:

    You've been warning Ubi!

    Already exists, played that many years ago on the PC, was fun but tricky.

    None can beat monty python holy grail tetris where you have to chuck tetris block shaped body's into a pit but occasionally one shouts "I'm not dead yet!" and moves changing the shape of the block :)

    I'm looking forward to seeing how they manage to work QTE sequences into the game.

    You want to turn the shape, you need to do a QTE.
    You want to destroy the line after matching up the shapes to fill a gap, QTE!
    Complete a QTE to proceed to the next level.


    You know a publisher is struggling to think of an IP when they're latest big announcement is the rehash of a timeless classic.

    Pieces will automatically fall into the correct place so long as you're mashing SPACE constantly :p

    Is this for real?

    I gave up on tetris in 1986.

    Bring on Star*Citizen and Oculus Rift, people weak-minded enough to play Tetris in 2014 can ... uh do so.

    Weird, makes one think what it must be like to be on the left side of the intelligence distribution curve.

    Well, that's a bit cynical. True, but cynical. :p
