Tekken 8 Releases New Update Today, Here's What It Does

A new Tekken 8 update is live on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S with patch notes.

Bandai Namco has released a new Tekken 8 update today, titled 1.03.02, via the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. Not only has Bandai Namco released a new update for Tekken 8, but it has provided Tekken fans with the patch notes for the update, which in turn reveal and detail everything the patch does. According to Bandai Namco, the primary focus of the update feature improvements, bug fixes, and some balance changes regarding certain character moves. Meanwhile, there are also now new items in the Tekken shop

Server maintenance for the update is already complete, so once downloaded, players can jump straight into the game with no delays other than the download itself. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco has not provided file size information for the update, which means we don't have any insight into how it may take to download. All we can note is that the patch notes aren't very long and there is no new content beyond some skins, so the file size should be on the smaller size, which should result in a painless, quick download.
