In order to boost their score, players will be able to purchase power-ups with real money. EA confirmed it will release new power-ups on a weekly basis.
According to EA, the free version of Tetris will also feature Facebook Connect integration, allowing players to compete with friends in a weekly competition, as well as share high scores.
