With Tetris about to celebrate its 30th anniversary, it's time for the ubiquitous puzzle game to make the leap into the next generation of consoles. After it was teased earlier this year, Ubisoft has announced that they'll be teaming up with Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov to create Tetris Ultimate for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as PC.

Tetris Ultimate will support competitive multiplayer for up to four players. Game modes will include Marathon, Endless, Ultra, Sprint, Battle, and Power-Up Battle.

A very brief teaser can be seen below. Tetris Ultimate is set to release this summer, with more information expected at E3.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Marathon and Endless appear to be as close as we'll get. But I get what you mean. NES/Game Boy-era Tetris is still the purest form of Tetris there is.

          TetrisDX was the pinnacle of Tetris IMO. Still followed the basic rules, but had tighter controls. I've yet to find a version of Tetris as good as that one.

        I'll gladly pay $15 if I don't have to get inundated with a ton of ridiculous ads, like with EA's iOS abomination of Tetris.
