Tetris slots into 2011 PSN line-up

Classic puzzler gets HD revamp.

Existence-consuming puzzler Tetris is coming to PlayStation Network early next year with a host of exclusive new modes, EA has announced.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, producer Christophe Gomez said, "This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.

"Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.

"I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before."

On the off chance that you've spent the last 25 years squatting in a cave in the Kalahari desert attempting to transcend the mortal plain and attain a state of ecstatic, deathless nirvana, have a look at the trailer below to get a better grasp on what exactly this Tetris we speak of entails.

EA hasn't confirmed an exact release date or pricing for its umpteenth take on Alexi Pajitnov's 1984 block-busting staple.
