How to sign up for Tekken 8 beta test

Bandai Namco Drops Trailer and Announces Closed Beta Test for Tekken 8

Bandai Namco has treated Tekken fans to an exciting trailer for the upcoming game, Tekken 8, with not one but two major announcements. The first announcement introduces Feng Wei, a power-hungry Chinese Kenpo practitioner, as a new playable fighter. Feng Wei, who first appeared in Tekken 5, is expected to bring his unique combat style to the game’s roster.

The second and most significant announcement unveils the highly anticipated closed beta test, giving players the chance to experience Tekken 8 before its official release. The closed beta test will be available from Friday, October 20 at 10 a.m. Central European Summer Time until Monday, October 23 at 9 a.m. CEST. To participate in the closed beta test, players must register between now and Wednesday, October 11 at 9 a.m. CEST. Here’s how you can sign up.

Applying for the Closed Beta Test

Signing up for the closed beta test is a straightforward process. Visit the official Tekken 8 website and scroll down to the Closed Beta Test page. You’ll find the sign-up section near the bottom. Simply enter your email address, select your preferred gaming platform, and indicate your country of residence. Once you’ve filled in these details, verify your identity and click the “Sign Up” button.

Bandai Namco will allocate closed beta test slots based on a “first arrived, first served” rule. Therefore, it is advisable to sign up as soon as possible to secure a spot.

The closed beta test for Tekken 8 promises an exciting experience for players. It will feature several game modes, including Ranked Match, Quick Match, and Tekken Fight Lounge. Additionally, there will be a selection of 19 playable characters and six stages to explore. Notably, players will have the opportunity to try out recently added characters, such as Raven, Feng Wei, and newcomer Azucena, along with the associated stage.
