Description

Tekken 8 for PC is just the latest in a long line of Tekken games: it is the eighth main game, and tenth release overall. But it is only the second game to be made available on PC: the first being Tekken 7. Tekken (the word comes from the Japanese Tetsu no ken, meaning ‘Iron Fist,’) is a fighting game, and in this game, the developers have perfected their understanding of what their players want from the game.



About the Game


Tekken 8 maintains the die-hard fans’ favourite moves and gameplay, while adapting and innovating to make those best bits even better. The devs have also smoothed out any glitches or hiccups that might have detracted from the action in other iterations of the game.

The upcoming showdown between Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima is front and centre in this game, just as the fight between Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima was in Tekken 7. While that fight resolved itself into a win for Kazuya – but don’t count Heihachi out until you’ve checked his pulse! – the stakes are just as high the showdown between the last two members of the Mishima bloodline (and the last two carriers of the Devil Gene) (more about which, see below)

So, Jin wants to kill his dad and put an end to the whole thing. Kazuya, fresh off of his win against Heihachi, is destroying cities and encouraging humanity to get to war. In the game’s continuity, this game takes place six months after the abovementioned battle, but the conflict between Kazuya and Jin is a little different than the one between Heihachi and Kazuya.
While the two of them were ultimately motivated by power and revenge, and each viewed the other as the biggest obstacle in his path, Jin’s ultimate struggle is more against the bloodline he inherited from his father and the Devil Gene itself.



The Nitty Gritty


Gameplaywise, rage system attacks return from the previous game, but have now been refined and expanded to include a Heat System of which Heat Smash is the pinnacle. Your heat bar fills as you play, turning purple when it’s ready to be deployed. It lasts 10 seconds once activated and you can perform Heat Dashes and that Heat Smash, amongst other things.

Each player responds differently to their own Heat bar activation: some enjoy healing faster, others boost aggression levels, or get more power or accuracy etc. Unlike other games, landing aggressive attacks on your enemy maintains the level of your Heat bar, rather than using it up. Tying into the ‘rewards for aggression’ system, your character’s health is restored by attacking enemies.
This relatively major tweak, one that will greatly benefit some players, introduces rewards for using aggression – players who embrace rage and actively attack will earn more points and XP than those who try to use stealth and pacificism to navigate around the game. Each attack creates chip damage in your enemies, which can be gathered to boost your health further.



The online mode, called Arcade Quest, offers a broad swathe of contests, gameplay and customisation (tournaments, one on ones, making outfits for your favourite fighters and more), and is a great way to get to know the game – and it should be more stable and user friendlier than ever before thanks to the new rollback netcode which enhances synchronicity and will ensure that your gameplay is not disrupted by an inconvenient lag at the wrong time.
Players will have access to five new stages: Arena, Rebel Hangar, Sanctum, Urban Square, and Yakushima during the course of the game. All of these stages have wonderfully rendered, highly detailed backgrounds with lots of fun elements and awesome environment transitions.

The game has the series’ usual high focus on hand-to-hand combat, but now there is also a staginess to the gameplay – a level of performativity – which was birthed by the positive reactions of fans to streamed gameplay. Greater destructiveness and stagey gameplay earned more kudos and positive comment on streams than safer or tamer ‘footage’, so that has been considered too, with the game now lending itself well to streaming.
There are at least 32 characters included in the game, including some new characters like Jack-8, the protagonist taking over from Jack-7, and Azucena Milagros Ortiz Castillo (a happy-go-lucky Peruvian mixed-martial-artist and daughter of a coffee company owner.) The returning characters are very recognisable for players who have their favourites, but all of them have enjoyed upgrades and improvements to boost gameplay and satisfaction.

The game is completely cross-platform so players can join their friends on consoles for showdowns and tournaments. The game uses Unreal Engine 5 for smooth gameplay and seamless action.



Mashima Family Tree (Possessors of the Devil Gene)


The following member of the Mashima bloodline have the powerful – and aggressive – Devil Gene, a supernatural genetic inheritance:

  • Jin Kazama: the protagonist of the game since Tekken 3, you will play as Jin.

  • Devil Jin: traditionally a separate character to Jin, this guy is Jin’s alter ego, the version of the character that shows up when the Devil Gene is activated

  • Kazuya Mishima: Jin’s father and the protagonist of the first two games, thenceforward becoming the antagonist.

  • Heihachi Mashima: Jin’s grandfather and Kazuya’s father. He is almost always the antagonist (although he was the protagonist in Tekken 2 – but he is always responsible for the events that precipitate the game’s events – all the games, including this one!

  • Jun Kazama: Jin’s mom makes a return to the series, coming to PC for the first time, as she was last seen in Tekken 2. She has an affinity with animals and observes them to improve her fighting skills. And, despite the game’s favouring of aggression, Jun has great defensive capabilities and can neutralise attacks.


  • Tekken 8 for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    It's the best Tekken game to Date, as someone that loves all types of fighting games this is the last beacon of 3d fighting games and it is the best one to date. It is full of features that people who enjoy fighting games need. It has Crossplay, decent online, jukebox (the entire tekken soundrack from 1 up till this one), great graphics and a decent story (especially if you like Jin).

    Truly an Upgrade for Tekken in a good way.
    • Amazing graphics
    • Jukebox, The entire Tekken sound track is on there
    • Crossplay
    • May need a decent PC for it to look really good.
    For now I'm dissappointed as I cannot play Tekken 8 even though I bought it and activated it... I hope the issue with the launching of the game on my computer will be resolved soon ! (EU-Polaris error)
    • I bought the game, activated it and the game does not launch. I have reinstalled the game and up until now, I'm waiting

    It is the first time i have ever pre-ordered a game. Let me tell you, i am not disappointed! The movement is MUCH more fluid than the SF6 and the MK1. So if you have any hesitations, choose this game!
    • Fluid movement
    • Unlimited/no skill ceileng
    • My Geforce GTX 1660 Ti can play this game on max settings EFFORTLESSLY
    • STEEP learning curve
    • Needs a very big time investment to be competent
    • Bandai Namco chose to keep the rage arts...
    The game could be fun but it's full of cheater, rage quitters, macro users and Namco apparently doesn't do anything to fight this plague.

    There are too much broken OP characters and you will practically see only them in rank spamming broken moves.

    There are too much particle effects hurting your eyes.

    The game is a mess with full screen moves, repeatedly 50/50 forced and the heat system is just a raw kind of bar system in its native form, practically tekken has become an anime fighter.

    I will change probably my review when they will release a patch fixing, all the bugs, broken characters and overall, punishing cheaters and pluggers.
    • Graphic is good
    • Complex combo system
    • Full of pluggers, cheater and macro abusers
    • Too much particle effects hurts your eyes
    • Unbalanced broken charcaters
    I wanted a nice Tekken game, I got a Tekken but...

    It's a good game with a few interesting features but at the same time, said features are so-so.

    The Tekken ball mode is nothing new.

    There is no Tekken Force mode.

    Only three new characters.

    Simply put, a price too high for not enough content, even with IG discount.

    Edit: And now, they added a battlepass and microtransactions. Yep, it's trash.
    • Gorgeous visuals
    • Easy to combo your opponents
    • Basically Tekken 7.5 in term of "new" things
    • Less content than Tekken 7
    • Battlepass and microtransactions
    I love all types of fighting games, but this one is the best I've ever played. TK8 has all the features we need. I really like the characters' costumes. If you wanna play a game with great graphics, an interesting story,... and have fun times with your friends, I recommend you buy it now.

    I haven't played Tekken in a while, but Tekken 8 is a great game. The controls are perfect, very addictive and many game modes. The graphics are stunning, as are each of the fighters on offer, with endless visual customization.

    I recommend everyone to play.
    Tekken 8: It's another Tekken, nothing special but if you love this saga you have to buy it!

    I'm not a fan of the story/lore, but i love to fight against other players. I'm waiting for DLCs and new characters.
    • Graphic - Effects
    • Hard to learn
    • Long-Life game
    • New noob-friendly system
    best beat em up so far. brings back the nostalgia of tekken serie with some new features,graphics and animations. let mk1 and sf6 to the ground... and easy to learn the mechanics. and tekken ball is here ;)
    • a lot of content
    • eddie as a dlc
    The code work love it
    • Code work right, no problem
    • None

    best fighting game ever
    Great game. Highly recommended.

    As someone who loves all types of fighting games, Tekken 8 is a must-play. It's the best Tekken game to date and the last beacon of hope for 3D fighting games. It's packed with features that fighting game fans will love, including crossplay, solid online play, a jukebox with the entire Tekken soundtrack from Tekken 1 to Tekken 8, great graphics, and a decent story (especially if you like Jin).
    The game is amazing to play even with the late adding of the tekken shop for the costumes and cosmetics and pluggers. the game is working great on the pc

    Tekken 6 and 7 was good and this Tekken 8 is so much better
    DO NOT BUY ! ! ! !

    Reasons :

    - lack of balance ( at this level the game is just unfair )

    - girls are buffed as hell

    - timeconsuming to learn girls and top tier match up ( tolerance 0 mistake from your side ) this is a work no more a game

    ( you'll never do anything without tier s char meaning : playing a girl )

    - grab too strong

    - super is very slow (cinematic) and too strong

    - game loading is very slow

    - i'm way better at soulcalibur from namco ( ranked B3 )

    even if SCVI is bad it's still more balanced than TKN 8

    - + 100 GO

    - more time for me to play more funny and balanced game

    - more time for working on my projects
