N3TWORK's Tetris mobile app has launched a new daily game show called Tetris Primetime, which offers players the chance to compete in a live tournament to win cash prizes. Per PocketGamer, Tetris Primetime is described as a "mix between a live television show and a video game tournament," with a daily competition hosted by actor Millen Baird, who will be awarding more than $1 million in annual cash prizes to players. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2016/05/23/the-top-7-tetris-blocks"] The game will kick off every night at 7:30 pm in various "anchor" cities around the globe, including Auckland, Perth, Moscow, Berlin, London, New York City, and Los Angeles, with participants in the first game playing for a chance to win a share of the $5,000 prize pool. Alongside this announcement, N3TWORK revealed that a further block of new game modes will be added to the Tetris mobile app home screen. Players can now join Tetris Royale, a previously-announced battle game, which sees up to 100 players compete to be the last person standing in the match. In addition, Tetris Together is also set to be rolled out as a brand new interactive experience, which will allow individual players to voice chat with their family and friends while also creating and sharing new levels for them to join on the platform.

"We think Tetris has the opportunity to be bigger than ever before as fans around the world can now play in both familiar and exciting new ways." The Tetris app is available as a free download on Android and iOS. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Adele Ankers is a Freelance Entertainment Journalist. You can reach her on Twitter.
