Tekken 8 is going on, and it’s operating in Unreal Engine 5. The combating octequel was revealed throughout yesterday’s Sony State Of Play livestream. Bandai Namco haven’t given a launch window for the sport but, however PC is a confirmed platform alongside current-gen consoles. Check out the real-time rendered trailer under, and brace your self for a hearty dose of the punchings.
Bandai Namco teased a brand new instalment within the Tekken collection throughout EVO final month, so it’s not that shocking one’s cropped up now. They are saying they’re aiming to be “immersive” with Tekken 8, which continues the story following Heihachi Mishima’s defeat. This time round it’s dads towards lads, with Jin Kazama dealing with down the dastardly Kazuya Mishima. He’s angling after world domination, see. Undecided that’s achievable simply by punching issues very onerous, however okay.
There aren’t too many extra particulars about Tekken 8 to go on but. Bandai Namco say they’re engaged on “groundbreaking new options”, however aren’t giving these away. What they do say is that these are linked to the brand new engine, which apparently pushes “the sensation of energy in battles repeatedly additional”. You may count on to see extra of Tekken 8’s characters, story and new options quickly although.
I genuinely know nothing about Tekken, however the UE5 trailer appears cool. I’m from South Yorkshire initially, so anytime somebody says the phrase Tekken it feels like ‘taken’ to me. Possibly that’s why the collection has handed me by. I do take pleasure in a good combating recreation although, so maybe Taken 8 can be a superb leaping on level. It appears very swish certainly.
Tekken 8 is coming to Steam on PC, in addition to PlayStations and Xboxes at a future date of Bandai Namco’s selecting. They only haven’t shared when but.
