Tekken 8 Set to Receive Major Balance Overhaul in Patch 1.04

Bandai Namco has detailed the balance adjustments for Tekken 8 patch 1.04 (1.05 on PS5). These are significant changes covering all characters.

Patch 1.04 for TEKKEN 8 is scheduled to be released on May 7th, and it will bring various updates and improvements to the game. The patch will also implement some changes to the multiplayer functions in the game to address the frequent errors that plagued the ranked and quick matches. During the update, server maintenance will be carried out, which will render all online content temporarily unavailable.

With this update, new items will be introduced to the TEKKEN SHOP, including the “NINJA Pack” and “SHINOBI Pack,” which are costume sets for all characters. Additionally, players will have access to a legacy costume for Lili and a free avatar customization item.

The patch will also improve online gameplay by introducing network optimizations, like packet transmission and rollback processing, to ensure smoother matches. The logic behind the red icon that signals processing delays in the lower right corner during online matches has also been improved. Other refinements include changes to “PLAY STATS” for better clarity, and the “My Replay & Tips” feature now allows players to skip entrance and victory animations during replay playback. Furthermore, “Exciting Replay” will load faster after this patch.
