The highly-anticipated fighting game Tekken 7 is now available for purchase, and we found you a sweet deal so you’re set to go on day 1.
Tekken 7 is looking to be a notable improvement over the sixth main entry in the venerable series, which didn’t exactly garner universal acclaim. Bandai Namco seems to have realized that, and we hope they will deliver the goods. Tekken 7 focuses on 1v1 battles, and introduces two new mechanics into the game. Rage Art allows the player to execute critical attacks that deal roughly 30% damage (depending on the character) once their health bar hits critical levels.
The second new mechanic is called Power Crush, and it lets the player continue with their attacks even while being hit by the enemy. However, you still receive the damage dealt by the enemy’s attacks. This mechanic works for absorbing high or mid attacks only. Tekken 7 will launch with 20 playable characters, while an additional 17 characters will be added over time. There are 10 new fighters, including Akuma from the Street Fighter series.
When it comes to the story, producer Katsuhiro Harada said that it will be darker than ever before. This is the game’s official description: “Love, Revenge, Pride. Everyone has a reason to fight. Values are what define us and make us human, regardless of our strengths and weaknesses. There are no wrong motivations, just the path we choose to take. Discover the epic conclusion of the Mishima clan and unravel the reasons behind each step of their ceaseless fight. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, TEKKEN 7 features stunning story-driven cinematic battles and intense duels that can be enjoyed with friends and rivals alike through innovative fight mechanics.”
Tekken 7 launches on June 2 worldwide. You can pre-order your copy right now and nab a 23% discount thanks to our friends at Digital Librty.Published in
