Tekken 7 Free DLC Coming Soon; Get An Early Look At The New Costume Sets
Latest installment in the hit fighting franchise celebrates its one-year anniversary.
Tekken 7 came out nearly a year ago, and now developer Bandai Namco is celebrating its one-year anniversary by releasing free DLC that will be "packed with content." The free DLC will release May 31, and you can check out an early preview of a few of the costumes in the screens below.
While Bandai Namco says this particular expansion will be a big one, Tekken 7 has been continually supported with add-on content. The game has unveiled several crossover characters over the past year, including Fatal Fury's Geese Howard and Final Fantasy XV's Noctis, the latest addition to the game. The game also received a full DLC pack last August, which added Ultimate Tekken Bowl to the game (for those who'd rather bowl than brawl). Unlike this pack, all of the previous DLC cost extra or required you to buy the $25 Tekken 7 Season Pass.
When it released last year, Tekken 7 was regarded as a great sequel in a much-loved fighting game franchise. Despite server issues at the time of launch, it sold well while following many of Tekken's time-tested gameplay traditions. In GameSpot's Tekken 7 review, Peter Brown said it was an easy game to recommend, thanks to its dozens of unique fighting styles and mix of melodrama and slapstick comedy. "Its diverse roster is packed with a wide range of personalities and fighting styles, bolstered by a raucous attitude that begs to be taken seriously while simultaneously mocking its more peculiar whims in the process," he wrote.
"Tekken fans will find their next favorite game--one that's the product of decade's worth of refinement. And while some of this depth will be lost or out of reach for newcomers, there's enough fun to be had outside of hardcore competition to keep players from all walks of gaming thoroughly entertained."
