Tekken 8 Battlepass

Tekken 8 Battle Pass on a fighting game? Takken 8 is a fighting game that was developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Arika. This game is available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Initially released on January 26, 2024, Tekken 8 already features a Season Pass and an in-game store but Tekken 8 battle pass wasn’t there.

Tekken 8 Battle Pass

Initially released, the game featured a season pass and an in-game store, but I guess it wasn’t enough for the game developers and publishers. Now, just like other video games like Fortnite, Clash of Clans, Call of Duty, etc., Tekken 8 will have its own Tekken 8 Battle Pass. And the Takken 8 battle pass will be known as “Fight Pass”.

Developers of Tekken revealed in the TEKKEN Talk Stream that they will have their own Battle Pass. The Fight Pass or Tekken 8 Battle Pass will feature new cosmetic items. You may check their stream below.

Players will level up by playing matches that unlock new and various items. Players can level up by completing daily and weekly online matches. Players need to complete certain tasks to progress on Tekken 8 Battle Pass.

Price of Takken 8 Battle Pass

The pricing of the Takken 8 battle pass isn’t disclosed yet, but I won’t be surprised if they charge $10, which is the basic fare price for all the battle passes these days. Even though the game is out for $69.99 on Steam, the other DLC characters cost $30 each on Season Pass.

Reactions of Gamers

People’s reactions weren’t positive. Few people were thrilled about the release of Tekken 8 Battle Pass while most of them were furious. They complained about how Bandai Namco, the developer of Tekken 8, are becoming greedy day by day.

One user wrote “Can’t wait for battle royal mode“. While another one “Stop referring to buying the battlepass/tekken coins as “supporting” Bamco. They are trying to leech from you.
