Tekken 8 feature-2

Tekken 8’s next Closed Beta phase begins on October 20th

Bandai Namco has announced that the next Closed Beta phase for Tekken 8 will begin on October 20th. Moreover, the team has released a new trailer that reveals a new character for this upcoming Tekken game, Feng.

Tekken 8 will not be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, and it will be powered by Unreal Engine 5. However, from what we’ve seen so far, the game cannot match the quality of its reveal trailer.

Tekken 8 will have Rage System, Recoverable Gauge, and Heat System. According to the devs, this new Tekken game aims to make the battles more enjoyable for a player in attack. It will also make it easier for people to understand exciting battle moments and momentum shifts. And finally, the game will aim to enhance the character’s specialty and characteristics.

Unfortunately, Tekken 8 had major shader compilation stutters on the PC during its Closed Network Testing. So, let’s hope that Bandai Namco will do something to resolve them.

Bandai Namco will release Tekken 8 on January 26th, 2024.
