Tekken 8 And Different Video Video games Releasing in January 2024

Release date: 26 January

Platforms: PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC

Undoubtedly one of the biggest video games releasing in 2024, Tekken 8 is the eighth main and 10th overall instalment in the iconic Tekken franchise by Bandai Namco. The previous main instalment, Tekken 7, was released in 2015, which means that fans have been waiting for a long time for the upcoming title.

Tekken 8 has the unique distinction of being the first fighting game built on the Unreal Engine 5. Tekken producer Michael Murray told IGN in an interview that even though the underlying game mechanics are the makers’ own proprietary code, “all the enhancements that you see, the graphics, the lighting, and the character models, and all that stuff making the game look pretty, is handled by UE.”

Simply put, Tekken 8 boasts much more realistic graphics than its predecessor. These include the visibility of sweat on the player character’s skin and perfectly ripped muscles. Enhanced graphics also help ensure that the avatar customisation is more detailed, with anything from full body to even accessories easily modifiable.

There are several new game mechanics, such as Heat System and Rage Arts. The Heat System is particularly noteworthy, as it grants players greater control over their player character and allows them to use aggressiveness as a tactic in fighting.

In all, Tekken 8 features 32 redesigned, unique fighter characters both old and new, including iconic names such as Paul Phoenix, King, Marshall Law and Nina Williams. Jun Kazama, one of the earliest franchise characters, makes her return 25 years after her last appearance in Tekken 2.
