A playtest for the upcoming Tekken 8 has just been uploaded to Steam database. The listing offers a glimpse at the new artwork for the upcoming game.
Subtitled CNT, this seems to be a ‘closed network test’ for the new installment of the popular PvP fighting game. The developer, Bandai Namco, had already issued several official announcements for the closed alpha tests for Tekken 8, with the last one taking place at EVO Japan 2023 in March. This new playtest seems to be open to the general population, coming to PC gamers via Steam. The Steam database website has presented the status of this playtest as released.
Through these closed network tests, Tekken 8 will be made available to select gamers in order to judge the soundness of the online functions of the title. The new game is going to feature cross-platform functionality as well as massive additions in their online competitive roaster. While conducting closed alpha tests, the developers had already teased about open beta testing for the game. However, this playtest seems to be a closed network test, giving gamers hope that there still might be an open beta coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox gamers after this.
The developer is yet to declare an official release date for Tekken 8. However, much of the information about Tekken 8 has been already leaked. These include leaked characters, such as Bryan Fury, leaked game intro screens, and details about several character customizations and in-game story/ campaign modes.
