Tekken is making a monumental comeback with its latest installment, Tekken 8. Fans of the series and newcomers alike are eagerly anticipating its release, slated for January 26, 2024. The game promises a roster brimming with iconic characters like King and Yoshimitsu, alongside fresh faces ready to challenge Kazuya’s G-Corp.
Tekken 8’s Debut on Xbox
Tekken 8 isn’t just launching; it’s making a grand entrance on the Xbox Series X/S. This move ensures that Xbox enthusiasts won’t miss out on the high-octane action that Tekken 8 brings to the table. With the game available for pre-order on the Xbox store, starting at $69.99, fans are already lining up to dive into the action.
The anticipation around the various editions of Tekken 8 is palpable, and you can find more details in our comprehensive breakdown.
Will Tekken 8 Join Xbox Game Pass?
The burning question on every gamer’s mind is whether Tekken 8 will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch. Unfortunately, as it stands, Tekken 8 will not grace the Game Pass library immediately upon its release. This means that, for now, the only way to experience the latest chapter in the Tekken saga is through a one-time purchase.
However, there’s a glimmer of hope. The Xbox Game Pass is renowned for its ever-expanding library, often adding titles that initially launched with a price tag similar to Tekken 8. There’s a possibility that Tekken 8 might join the Game Pass lineup in the future, once the initial launch excitement has simmered down.
