The day that Tekken 7 fans have been waiting for so long is finally here. Tekken 7 has finally launched worldwide, after being an arcade game in Japan since 2015. Now, it’s finally available worldwide on all major platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The pre-load has been live for a few days, so many players have probably already gotten their hands on Tekken 7.

As Katsuhiro Harada tweeted a few days ago, Tekken 7 got a Day 1 Update. The patch is around 600 MB in size. It seems minor, considering that it only has two points, but it’s pretty significant, especially for online competitive play. Here are the patch notes, as reported by Avoiding the Puddle.

  • Online functionality optimized.
  • “Double Elimination” added to the tournament rules settings.

As you can see, both points are pretty significant. There haven’t been many reports of online functionality problems, but it seems that some kinks still needed ironing out. Adding Double Elimination to the tournament rules settings adds a pretty important new dimension to competitive play. In short, if you’ve pre-loaded the game, but declined to download the Day 1 Update, you’ll probably want to rectify that to improve your experience.

Tekken 7 is now live for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and, for the first time in the history of the series, on PC. For more information about the game, check out our other articles, like Tekken 7 Achievements List, the Minimum and Recommended PC Specs, and more.
