Tekken 8 is the eighth main and tenth overall installment in the Tekken series. Its gameplay will emphasize aggressiveness, rewarding offensive players over defensive ones. The game introduces a new game system called “Heat,” providing chip damage, additional movesets, and altering the properties of certain character moves, including a heavy guard break. Fighters can dash cancel designated moves into the Heat State, and the timer can be stopped by actively using moves. Guarding against heavy attacks or characters in Heat State inflicts chip damage, enabling health bar regeneration. Recoverable health can only be regained by attacking opponents, differing from the Tag mode-only regeneration system in Tekken Tag Tournament games. Additionally, Tekken 8 brings back the Rage system from Tekken 7, but with notable changes. The Rage Drive is now separated and reworked as “Heat Smash,” a move within the “Heat” system.
