The first week of the Tekken 8 Closed Network Test has just ended.

PlayStation 5 users were the first ones to be given a chance to try out the game and experience its raw awesomeness. The second part of the test will include Xbox Series X|S and Steam users, which is composed of majority of the online Tekken players.
