Tekken Revolution is Free-to-Play Starting Today on PSN

Nick O'Leary's Avatar + Posted by Nick O'Leary on Jun 11, 2013 // Public Relations Specialist, Namco Bandai Games

Everyone here on the Tekken team is very excited to finally pull the curtain off of Tekken Revolution, Namco Bandai Games’ brand new free-to-play game that is launching today on the PlayStation Network exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system. The team has been hard at work making sure that every essential aspect that has made Tekken one of the best fighting games on the market for the past 19 years is present in Tekken Revolution. From the iconic cast of characters, critically acclaimed fighting engine, and gorgeous visuals, this is the Tekken experience fans know and love. However, since Tekken Revolution is a free-to-play title, some exciting new additions to the classic Tekken gameplay were implemented to take into account not only our hardcore fans, but also the PlayStation 3 owners who may have never played Tekken or a fighting game before. Here is a quick rundown of some of the new features in Tekken Revolution to get everyone up to speed with the new game!

Tekken Revolution

Character Roster

Tekken Revolution features eight iconic characters to choose from at launch. The decreased roster size makes matches more strategic, since it’s easier for players to remember strengths and weaknesses as well as matchups between characters. Each of the eight characters were chosen based on their unique play style and move set. Players will be able to purchase additional characters with in-game gift points, and characters will be added in future updates!

Tekken Revolution

Character Progression System

Brand new for the Tekken series, players will be able to upgrade their favorite characters with XP earned by playing matches. Tekken Revolution features three attributes to increase; Strength, which increases your overall attack damage, Endurance, which increases character health, and Vigor, which increases the chance to land critical hits. This progression system allows for fans to tune characters to their preferred style of play. Do you want to set up Critical Arts combinations and cause additional damage by increasing Vigor, or simply increase Endurance and be able to withstand more attacks? The choice is up to you.

Tekken Revolution

Refined and Streamlined Moves

Tekken Revolution features two styles of special attacks for each character, Critical Arts and Special Arts. Each character has four Critical Arts moves, which give players a chance to deal a large amount of increased damage on critical hits. Characters also have one Special Arts move in their move set, which grants them a period of invincibility at the start of the move. These Arts moves will be the backbone of your move set and will instantly be recognizable by the motion blur and particle effects during the attack.

And that’s just a taste of the improvements we have added into Tekken Revolution to be the first and best free-to-play fighting game around. The Tekken franchise has long been the leader of the fighting genre, constantly raising the bar higher for itself and its competitors. Everyone on the Tekken team hopes you enjoy our latest push forward.

It is actually a good game, ofc for a f2p with little of trophies for whose trophy hunters small amount of players and micro transactions . Buy hey you can still play it Online and offline with the Arcade Mode and also I thought besides Arcade Mode that will be some kinda of training mode for beginners, but hey thx for this. It actually has more characters than TTT2 Prologue that came in Tekken Hybrid. Still I’m happy about Kazuya , Paul and Law.

I would pay money if they gave me the option to add Tekken Tunes. I swear I cannot play Tekken without listening to my crazy soundtrack any longer. Metal Gear Rising music,Kingdom hearts, Skrillex, Celldweller,Harlem Shakes, Crazy Al yankovich, and all that are on my Tekken Tag Tournament 2 disc.

Does this post really say ‘owns a PS3 and never played tekken before’. Honestly, I don’t see how owning PS’s and never coming across tekken unless you don’t like these games haha. which anyone who has been a fan of these styles, would of def played one by now… Woooo though, haven’t played tekken for years now I get a free to play on it? That’s How SONY DOES IT. I just hope it’s not like U3 or DCUO where you can only level up so far before you had to pay, I can understand paying to speed up the process of it though. I don’t know how committed I’d be to the game though, So paying for it can go either way with me.

For doubting people: it has everything that a paid version of the game would have, you just have to… wait for it… WORK to unlock additional things, like characters and whatnot. 13 trophies, full arcade mode.

As someone who really only played casually on the arcade machine at school, I find it to be an excellent offer. Even if you’re a hardcore fan… well, it’s a game you love. And it’s free. Do the math yourself.
