Tekken 7 has finally been released last week on PC and consoles and it has already received a new update which addresses some of the issues plaguing the game on all formats.
The Tekken 7 1.02 update introduces some improvements for online matchmaking, removing information that was previously displayed before accepting a match. The update also introduces the option of turning off voice chat and a small tweak for one of Nina's attacks.
Improved online matching functionality
The following player information will no longer be displayed before a match: character selected, wins, rank, title
Connection with other players can be established more frequently
Improved stability: Matchlist is tentatively removed to improve online matching functionality
Addition of ON/OFF feature for voice chat
ON/OFF for voice chat added to OPTION menu.
Set to OFF as default setting.
Some characters’ move properties were corrected
Nina’s Ivory Cutter attack properties.
Earlier this week, we have learned that one of the two Tekken 7 guest DLC characters coming in the future should sport a gauge mechanic, leading many to speculate that the character could be another Street Fighter character. A new play mode, Tekken Bowl, is also getting added to the game as DLC.
Even with its lack of single player modes, especially compared to previous entries in the series, Tekken 7 manages to be one of the best fighting games released this year on PC and consoles.
This is possibly the best Tekken has ever been, and a slightly slim selection of modes can’t take away from that. If you want one of the best fighting games to be released this year, Tekken 7 is essential.
Tekken 7 is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
