Tekken 7 Has Third-Person Shooting And Quick-Time Events
Tekken 7 launches in June for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The fighting game Tekken 7 won't be limited to punching and kicking. GameSpot attended a preview session earlier this month and discovered there is a third-person shooting element in the game's story mode. During the story chapter involving Lars, we found that he could fire his machine gun at this foe, with the camera switching to a third-person perspective during this sequence.
It's not immediately clear if this shooting mechanic will be available for multiplayer matches. We only saw it used by the character Lars during our time with Tekken 7's story mode. Whatever the case, you can see what the shooting looks like in action through the gameplay video above. The shooting part starts at around 7:10, if you want to skip directly to it.
Shooting is not the only new feature coming to Tekken 7, a trailer from E3 2016 revealed that the fighting game will also have some quick-time events, presumably limited to the story mode.
Following its launch in arcades and in Japan through the Fated Retribution version for Japan, Tekken 7 comes to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 2. This is a delay, as the game was originally expected to come out in early 2017.
For more on Tekken 7, you can read GameSpot's interviews with series designer Katsuhiro Harada, who told us about his desire for PS4-Xbox One cross-play, rage-quitting, the possibility of a Nintendo Switch version, and more. Those stories are linked below.
